Private Practice Consultation

I offer information and support to therapists of all backgrounds in building or improving on their private practice models. When I opened my private practice, I started from scratch. I thought I would be a therapist in community mental health clinics for eternity, and when I left to start my own practice, I had no idea what to do or where to start with the business end of things. I excitedly got to work, learning and studying, talking to colleagues in practice already, and always including my own styles and approaches as I went. Even when other people said that was absurd!

My result was a thriving practice with a full client schedule, and a full roster of associates in under 5 months.

 

The wave of business energy has continued, and my therapy and supervision practices have remained full and overflowing over the last decade.

I am so grateful and appreciative of the people, privileges and resources I have accessed to help my practice grow. I couldn't have done it without my community, even the folks who said I wouldn't succeed, because I appreciate their feedback and the motivation to keep carving my own path. And it turns out that I love it. I love private practice, I love running a business, and I love it when others get to build thriving practices of their own.

 

Where does that lead us? I have had exciting experiences in successfully building my own practice and in supporting others as they build successful practices of their own. I want to pass on all the information and strategies I learned and continue to learn and apply to support you in creating the exact practice you want to have.

I have a separate passion aimed at strengthening our communities, and increasing opportunities for therapy services to continue to be available for all kinds of people with all kinds of situations, needs, and resources.

 

My aim and focus is to work individually to assist you with building and maintaining the practice you want to have. We can work together to develop a plan to address one specific area, or multiple aspects of the world of private practice management. There are many ways to nurture a practice, and I believe that finding and using the right approach for you will allow you to maximize your experience with your practice.

 

We can address any and all aspects of private practice life: legal and ethical requirements, generating referrals, best practices, common areas where folks make different choices, differences between licensing boards that can create confusion about rules and expectations, adjusting to changes and challenges, and deconstructing traditional models to create access and best reflect you, your work, and your practice.
