Entrepreneurship and Relationships - How to Stay Connected While Building a Private Practice

I reached out to Jenev because I was desperate to have you hear her message. More often than not, while we love building our practices, it can deter from our relationships and if we aren't fostering intimacy and connection, our relationship can take a back seat. I have seen it too often with therapists. We are not immune.

Reason #9876 Why Insurance Panels Make Me Mad

Reason #9876 Why Insurance Panels Make Me Mad

I truly believe that medical insurance is one of the greatest inventions of the modern world. The idea that people can get the care they need for emergencies and unexpected events is fantastic. 

While I could have opted out of medical insurance to save money while I was in college, I never did. I understood how valuable of a resource insurance is. And yet, as a business owner, I have decided that I will not get on insurance panels. 

In fact, some people in the world have the notion that Kelly and I hate insurance because we talk so much about private pay practices. It isn't that we hate insurances... it is just that we often wake up to messages like this one from our clients:

5 Ways to Build Confidence in Private Practice

How to Build Your Confidence in Private Practice

90% of clinicians with whom I speak tell me they want to feel more confident in their private practices.

Therapists are already raised in a culture of not good enough, waiting until we graduate, complete hours, get licensed, become supervisors, get additional certifications, supervise in those additional certifications, and until we are pretty much near retirement to feel confident.

Integrating You into Private Practice : Interview with Renee Beck, LMFT

I had met Renee online and just had an instant resonance with what she would share. She was kind enough to offer to meet for this interview where we talk about what it means to be out of the box as a therapist, how to integrate spirituality and be true to who you are while remaining ethical and impactful in your work.

Thank you Renee for sharing your wisdom. I am grateful. To learn from Renee or to book a consult with her - visit her site here. 


Why you can't or don't want to select your niche

Why you can't or don't want to select your niche

You are an amazing, inclusive therapist! We get it! However, you cannot be everything to everyone. I would guess that 90% of people who attend our free niche webinar come out the other side inspired about niching. Yes, even the ones that were VERY skeptical on the outset. 

Why is niching so important? 

Ultimately, niching is really about getting clear about connecting and empathizing with your client! Therapists are great at that, and during the 1 hour training we are going to help you tap into this amazing skill and allow yourself to step into your confidence as a clinician. And no, we won't ask you to pigeon-hole yourself! This is ALL about great clinical work- and ALL about the clients, and ALL about self-care.

My Journey From Therapist to Consultant

My Journey From Therapist to Consultant

The truth is, I will always be a therapist. I never set out to be a consultant. It is interesting sometimes the journey that life takes. Sometimes, there is a higher purpose and path to each of our lives, something bigger guiding us. 

My Path To Being a Consultant

My journey to becoming a consultant started by failing a licensing exam by 1 point. It was heart wrenching and mortifying. I couldn't have imagined how many amazing things could've come out of that experience

Therapists: Be a Visionary

Therapists: Be a Visionary

You are a visionary. How do I know? Because you are a therapist. When I told people what I did for a living, I would often get responses like "I could never sit and listen to people's problems all day!" The truth is, we know that good therapy isn't about just listening to people's problems- it is about sitting in truth with another human and holding the vision of what can be. 

You have a vision for every client who walks through your door. No- this doesn't mean you are trying to fit your client into your box of how they should be. But, you know what it looks like when someone is unfettered, when they make that shift to owning their life, being intentional, and enjoying it. When you see them shift from being a victim of experiences, circumstances, or limitations to an empowered person who is going to live their life in the best way they know how.
