Therapy Practice Consulting

Hiking in Sunset_edited.jpg

Starting your own psychotherapy practice can feel remarkably intimidating.  While receiving an abundance of clinical training in graduate school (hopefully!), most are offered minimal-to-no formal instruction on how to start a practice.  As a result, many people settle for the perceived safety of salaried positions or attempt to start a practice oriented towards minimizing risk.  Though not inherently “wrong” decisions to make, they are often made at the expense of job satisfaction, flexibility, and income potential. 


However, despite the absence of formal business training, you’ve likely been exposed to the same fear-based advice that most of your peers have:

  • You should start off in a group practice to make it safer

  • You must get on as many insurance panels as you can in order to get clients

  • You’ll need to send out hundreds of introduction letters and create a blog to “get your name out there”

  • You will have to be available on nights and weekends to accommodate clients’ schedules


But if your experience is at all like mine, you’ll find that most of these “have-to’s” end up being outdated, ineffective, and inaccurate.  Whether you’re newly licensed or a veteran clinician, whether you’re considering starting a new practice or refreshing an already existing one, I can support you through the process of creating—and maintaining—the practice you would like to have.

I can be your guide as you navigate the process of discovering and creating the practice that best fits you, working through the fears and obstacles along the way, and learning about yourself through the journey. In doing so, I believe you will not only be more fulfilled by what you have created, but you will also do better at helping those you hope to serve.


  • Meeting with you 1:1

  • Getting to know you as a person and as a professional (hopefully you get to know me as well!)

  • Tailoring my approach to fit your unique interests, needs, and concerns

  • Assist you in defining your vision for your work and your professional identity

  • Supporting you in understanding your fears and cultivating the courage to move through them in pursuit of your vision


  • Providing a standard “template” to follow or prerecorded videos to watch

  • Offering services or materials aimed simply at “accelerating” your practice

  • Pressuring you to make choices you are not prepared to take
