You better take what you can get… something is better than nothing… somebody is better than nobody…
Have you heard that, thought that, or told someone else that when talking about private practice? Do you know what that leads to?
Erin Bennetts, LCSW, RPT play therapist in Littleton, CO shares her journey of private practice. Before bootcamp she was 60% full, seeing 10-12 clients a week mostly reduced fee clients, barely paying the bills, and accruing debt.
She felt like she needed to see anybody and everybody, whatever they were willing to pay, and she was burning out and not feeling proud and excited about her clinical work. We talk to a LOT of therapists who get taught this message, or some iteration of it:
- Somebody is better than nobody
- Something is better than nothing
- You have to take what you can get
Erin started to learn about the business side of private practice, and it transformed her business, her financial health, and her clinical work. Now Erin has a business that she loves, a fee that sustains her that she charges with confidence, a full caseload of clients she loves, and a successful business. AND, she has been able to replicate this process as she hired new therapists as part of her practice, including filling up a new therapist in just 11 weeks!
