The Profitable Private Practice: How to Start, Run, and Grow a Therapy Practice
by Melissa DaSilva, LICSW

“They didn’t teach us this sh*t in graduate school” That is the phrase said by almost every practitioner who tries to start their own private practice. This book is a #1 must-read tool for anyone starting their own business. I teach you the basics to starting a therapy business, how to get a full caseload, deal with insurance companies and so much more. Learn from my experiences, my mis-steps through real-life examples and a touch of humor.

Melissa started her career in the social work field.  She has worked in agencies and schools for many years.  Always wanting to make more of an impact on society, she started the mental health agency East Coast Mental Wellness.  She has created an environment that gives clinicians a place to do work that they love, so they can help clients make the change they so desperately want. Melissa's specialties include helping others get unstuck in their lives through the use of coaching, therapeutic techniques and  hypnosis.  Melissa is also the creator and host of two successful podcasts Pride Connections and Chit Chat with a Therapist.  She has been published on many website blogs and featured as a guest on several international podcasts.
