"They didn't teach me this sh*t in graduate school" is a phrase myself and many other therapists who have opened their own private practice businesses have yelled out in frustration at one time or another. In my book, THE PROFITABLE PRIVATE PRACTICE, I have created a step-by-step guide that helps therapists through the process of starting a private practice, teaches them how to run it like a business and actually make money to live the lifestyle they want.

My book will teach clinicians how to: -Start a thriving therapy business-Create a full caseload of ideal clients-Market your practice effectively, even if you are an introvert-Get credentialed on insurance panels-Utilize social media to grow your practice in the comfort of your PJs-Be HIPAA compliant without beating your head against the wall-Make money to support yourself and sustain the lifestyle you crave.
