Tidying Up My Practice Step 4: Time Management and Processes

Tidying Up My Practice Step 4: Time Management and Processes

Starting and growing a private practice can be a real time suck. There are so many things to accomplish and to balance the management of the business along with the clinical work, well it’s often something we don’t plan for. So all the management stuff gets shoved in between appointments with clients, or late nights after the kids have gone to bed.

In the beginning, it can be fun. It’s like finding a new love. You are all excited and have a new found energy. But over time, you get comfortable and maintaining that kind of energy long term can really wear you down.

Tidying Up My Practice Step 3: Business Boundaries

Tidying Up My Practice Step 3: Business Boundaries

I know you talk about boundaries in your clinical practice regularly. From the outside looking in, it is always so clear. We can see the places that people aren’t speaking their truth. We can see the impact of putting other people’s needs before own’s in a way that is unhealthy and detrimental (as opposed to in a giving back, act of service sort of way). As we reflect, explore, and delve deeper we can often help our clients create that beautiful connection that lets them see the why and how of this pattern and develop new ways of being.

Tidying Up My Practice Step 2: Business Plan and Finances

Tidying Up My Practice Step 2: Business Plan and Finances

When you imagine a business plan, typically an image of a 20 page document comes to mind, sitting on a bookshelf collecting dust, and it makes you want to run for the hills. My first business plan was a napkin sketch but in that napkin sketch were some key components that helped me be successful and I want to help you today figure out those parts so you can feel confident that you have your business planning basics down.

What is in a business plan?

A business plan is a live document, meaning, it will change over time but it is what you go back to when you get stuck on making decisions in the next steps for your business. For example, you may start out as a solo practice and then one day realize, you really want to add clinicians. So you will go back through this process and adjust each time you want to make a change.

Multiple streams of income, adding an income stream, moving Beyond the Couch, podcasts, online courses, workshops, retreat, intensives, products, workbooks, trainings, certifications... it seems like every day as a therapist you are hearing about ways to expand beyond traditional psychotherapy.

Each of these amazing clinicians shares when and why they knew it was time to add a stream of income, what they wish they had known before they launched, their advice for others considering, and more! Hear real talk, real advice, real stories, money talk, and even a little casual swearing! (It was a great client testimonial that one of the panelists got that included a little colorful language!)

Miranda Palmer

I have successfully built a cash pay psychotherapy practice from scratch on a shoestring budget. I have also failed a licensed exam by 1 point (only to have the licensing board send me a later months later saying I passed), started an online study group to ease my own isolation and have now reached thousands of therapists across the country, helped other therapists market their psychotherapy practices, and helped awesome business owners move from close to closing their doors, to being profitable in less than 6 weeks. I've failed at launching online programs. I've had wild success at launching online programs. I've made mistakes in private practice I've taught others how to avoid my mistakes. You can do this. You were called to this work. Now- go do it! Find some help or inspiration as you need it- but do the work!
