Free Training: How to Set Fees in Private Practice

Therapists in Private Practice

The truth is many therapists in private practice aren’t making a lot of money. Some common explanations for this fact that I hear repeatedly are:

  • Our culture doesn’t value therapy
  • I can’t get on “fill in the blank” insurance company’s panel
  • Insurance companies have reduced reimbursements
  • There aren’t enough clients in my area
  • Nobody will pay “fill in the blank” for therapy

I work with therapists all over the world, and haven’t found that the above issues keep them from making money. Some of the above issues are things that inform your private practice business plan, and some of them are just silly old myths.

The other truth is, many therapists in private practice ARE making a great income. Some may explain this away to say it is luck, geography, etc. However, I say it is good business planning.

The hallmark of a good business plan is a way to bring in income. As therapists, our main source of income is fee for our services (unless you are doing some fun Beyond the Couch activities).  So, the setting and charging of your fee can make or break your practice.

Join us for a live webinar training where we will help you determine the right fee for your individual practice. Don’t worry- we will make it simple and you will walk away with new insights. We’ve trained on this topic before and have never gotten so many e-mails and so much feedback that learning about this topic was truly transformational for the therapists that attended. So, mark Wednesday October 29th at 11am off on your calendar and RSVP to grab your spot here.

We won’t be offering a recording of this training. Why? Because we find again and again that people who attend our trainings live experience more learning and personal transformation! The training is free, the one thing we will ask you to invest is your time. So, register for the free training here, and plan to be present! We will also be doing a giveaway for a free subscription of one of our favorite practice management systems Simple Practice.

Whether you are just starting a private practice, reviving a private practice, or trying to head off burn out by working smarter instead of harder- we can’t wait to see you there! Wondering if we really know what we are talking about? Just ask any of our Business School Bootcamp for Therapists alumni about how their businesses and lives have changed after completing the bootcamp!

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!
