BEGINNING A PRIVATE PRACTICE
I offer an individual consultation and coaching services for licensed clinicians (LMHC, LICSW, & LMFT) for beginning and building your own private practice in mental health. I have created a workbook to take you through each part of your new journey from getting on insurance panels to submitting your first claim, and everything in between!
This service is set up as a do-it-yourself, hands-on experience, so you are part of every step of the process. Services include 3 consultation meetings. Meetings are between 1 and 2 hours long. If you are in the beginning, sessions are between 1 and 3 months apart, depending on where you are in the process. Additional meetings are available in a clinician needs additional support.
In each meeting we will review the section of the workbook that corresponds to the meeting. For example, first meeting, first section, and so on. We will also go over any questions you might have. After you have gone home and have worked on completing the tasks in the first section, contact me and we can make another appointment to go over the following section. I am also available for e-mails or phone consults between meetings, free of charge, if you run into an issue we did not cover during our session. Please see the 'Beginning a practice' worksheet. to help get you thinking about the process before we meet.
After the first meeting, if you find that setting up a private practice is not for you. You do not have to continue with the other meetings, and you can discontinue at any time. My hope is that after our first meeting, you feel empowered and excited about your new professional endeavor!
ALREADY IN PRIVATE PRACTICE
If you have already begun your practice, but feel as if you continue to need support. I would be happy to talk with you and see if the information I have put together can be of assistance. One of the most common issues in running a practice is organization. I am able to help with that as well. Please review these 'Already in practice' worksheet To help us use our time most efficiently when we met.
I am an LMHC. I have been in the field for 8 years. I began my practice a few years ago. What a difference it has made in my professional and personal life!
When I began my practice I was intructed by a colleague. She was helpful in answering my questions, and was more than happy to support me as I started out. When I was going through the process I realized the learning curve was steep. I did not want to bother her with all the seemingly unimportant questions this new adventure entailed, as she had a full-time practice of her own to manage.
I began thinking, what if there was a service just dedicated to helping clinicians with the very issues I was struggling with. I am not the only person who has been, or who is in this situation. I am also not the only person who has wanted to start off on their own but not did not want to bother a friend or colleague. Not to mention how overwhelming the whole thing might feel! With all of this in mind, I began gathering all the knowledge I accrued from everything that I have done when starting my own practice, along with some new things, and I am pleased to be able to share my knowledge with you.
