Private Practice Set-up


Are you tired of working long hours yet feeling like you are living from paycheck to paycheck.  Are you growing leary of the beuracracy and politics which impact your daily work?  Is this not what you had in mind when you set out to earn your advanced degree?  


If you relate with any of these feelings, you may be thinking that it is time to explore your options in search of a way out.  Have you been thinking about starting your own private practice, yet  worry that you are not ready to take on this new venture? Are you uncertain about how you would get referrals in order to get your practice up and running?  While graduate school provides the theory and foundations of clinical practice, they fail to teach the business aspects involved in running a mental health program and/or private practice.  Most of us get promoted into management positions and then learn as we go.  However when starting a private practice there is a financial cost as well as a large time commitment required to get the business up and running.  Don't let this alarm you, it is quite manageable when handled in an organized manner.  Have faith in your abilitites and join the community of private practitioners. Your services are much more needed than you realize.  Clients in search of psychotherapist are often faced with long wait list, practitioners who do not return calls or inexperienced, unethical practitioners.  


With the right planning, a little patience and a willingness to learn, you can set up your own private practice which with a little time will be prosperous and thriving.  While much of the information you need can be found on the internet, we can provide you useful information which will save you time and effort as you work towards developing your own practice.  The topics that we cover include:


  • Developing a Short/Long Term Plan
  • Defining your specialty niche
  • Assessing the current market/need for your service in your area
  • Deciding on your Business/Legal Structure
  • Establishing your Professional Fees
  • Becoming Credentialed with Insurance Panels
  • Developing a Cost/Expense Forecast
  • Acquiring Office Space ( Real vs. Virtual)
  • Developing a Website
  • Advertising your Services
  • Maintaining your Motivation Throughout the Process
  • Collaboration and Networking

For $400, we provide a two hour consultaion, available in person or via Skype. This consultation is strongly recommended for anyone who is considering pursuing their own private practice or for someone who has already made the transition to private practice, yet is not attracting customers to their business.  The two hours spent in this sessions will save you hours of prep time and will enable you to develop a realistic/practical plan for transitioning into your own practice. In addition, important templates for forms frequently utilized in private practice will be made available for you.
