Beyond the Couch Ep 56: Burnout Recovery and Prevention with Dr. Snehal Kumar

This week, Sam chats with Snehal Kumar about recovery and prevention of burnout, and the ways in which it especially shows up for those in marginalized communities. They talk about how to notice burnout creeping up on you, especially while living in NYC, and the consequences of long-term burnout. They also discuss the importance of challenging our own perceptions of work, seeking community, and learning to listen to your body in order to combat chronic exhaustion.

Snehal Kumar (she/her), a NYS licensed psychologist, offers individual counseling to adults, offers consultation/supervision to other therapists, and leads workshops for organizations. Her specializations include burnout recovery, mindfulness, and diversity-related concerns. Connect with Snehal on her website or via email at

Wishing everyone rest and warmth through the holidays. We’ll be back with a new episode on January 11th!
