Selling the Couch
My guest today is Benjamin Reisterer, LPC, in Grand Rapids, MI. He has successfully accomplished something that is a frequent topic of discussion in the STC Facebook community: he designed and created an app. It’s called MetaFi, and it’s a more efficient way for clients to track emotions on a daily basis. He had to think outside the box and take action to see this idea become a reality. We’ll discuss the process he went through and the lessons he’s learned. Join us for more!
Practice of Being Seen
It is only fitting that this week’s guest, Benjamin Reisterer, created a remarkably simple, convenient smartphone app called MetaFi, which guides users through noticing what emotions they feel, where they physically feel it in the body and the story around the emotions in three quick steps, so that users can begin to notice patterns in their emotions and physical responses and consciously disrupt those patterns with newer, healthier habits.
Reisterer created the app Metafi to help his patients and others work towards becoming more Mindful. "It's like exercise," he explained. "The more you do it, the more results that you have. But if we're really paying attention to the physiological responses, sometimes that's our first clue to what we're actually experiencing in that moment."

Benjamin also created, MetaFi, a mindfulness app, designed to help strengthen the user's emotional connection between their mind and body. He likened mindfulness to physical exercise. The more you do it, the stronger you get.
The Intentional Clinician
In this episode, I interview therapist, and the creator of the app MetaFi, Benjamin Reisterer, LPC. We discuss learning about oneself, one's emotions, and more, in order to work on creating a therapeutic relationship with one's self (in both mind and body) to lead toward healing, transformation, and more.
Rapid Growth Media
The co-founders of MetaFi, a self-awareness app that supports mindfulness, emotional intelligence, and body awareness, are looking to bring some aspects of counseling to the digital age. Rapid Growth caught up with both co-founders Benjamin Reisterer MA, LPC and Tom Engelsman to chat about their new app and how it works.
