A mental health practitioner—whether in a private practice, a group, or an agency—is a businessperson (and, in many ways, an entrepreneur). They are a businessperson who will experience many rewards and who also has many responsibilities.

The decision to move from being a solo practitioner to starting a group practice is a big deal! The truth is there is a lot involved. There are a lot of things that you'll need to piece together, and it totally changes how you do business. However, putting in that work up front can have huge payoffs for you as a private practice owner.
One of your most important duties as a group practice owner is supporting your staff. It not only helps the employees in your practice grow, but it also fosters a positive workplace culture, helps employees feel valued, and enables the practice to have a flow and cohesion that otherwise wouldn’t be there.
You've invested time and money into building your practice website, but you still aren’t getting calls. Many private practice owners assume that means their website is broken. They don’t know what went wrong, though…just that something isn’t working. So, they invest more time and more money into different solutions without knowing what their website really needs.
The New Year is here, and most of us are back at it after having a few days off. Many of us are thinking about how to run our practices smoother, earn more money, and have a better work-life balance. In working with hundreds of practice owners to launch and scale their businesses, I’ve learned that there are several commonalities among those who are successful and thriving in practice. The New Year is a great time to reflect, readjust, and reengage in building a practice that honors our vision for our business and life.
