I see people on therapist groups talking about how successful private practice is dying or unrealistic because of insurance rates, stigma, or insert whatever other reason here. And, it frustrates me.
Because, the truth is, we have a SHORTAGE of passionate therapists in private practice who can help people in the way they need help.
People want their pain to ease.
In the midst of the holidays you see advertising everywhere that is meant to help ease people’s pain points. Help them live easier and more comfortable lives through the size of their tv, some new makeup system, or toy… but what you do… it truly eases pain.
Most of what is out there is just a distraction from the real stuff that we are struggling with. And, what you do helps people in one of the deepest ways possible. You matter!
So, no, private practice is not going anywhere in 2019. Kelly and I are to help. We want to keep more great therapists in private practice, and introduce more awesome therapists out into the world to do what they are best at.
We work with therapists everyday in our Business School Bootcamp and they are showing it IS possible all around the world, with a thousand different niches, you CAN be successful! These are therapists who often got on the phone with us and had a real conversation during their interview about their fears about being sustain in private practice, about whether they could drop insurance panels that weren’t a good fit, or who were fearful about whether they could make a living. And now they are!
In fact… if you know a bootcamper- you might want to reach out to them… they each have a few limited invites to connect people they know to a special pre-enrollment of Bootcamp… which means you can get first dibs (and a reduced price) on our sell-out Business School Bootcamp for Therapists course for 2019.
