Private Practice Coaching
We offer coaching for providers who are starting a private practice or who has started a private practice and could benefit from enhancement. The mental health therapy field is growing by leaps and bounds. If you want to develop a private practice and experience success that grows abundantly, you may need help with a few vital practices which we have mastered. Here are a few questions to ask yourself if you would like to build a successful private practice:
Do I have a surefire way to attract and retain a potential clientele?
Do I have a clear, concise plan that encompasses my short and long-term goals?
Is my business and marketing plan diverse and does it have contingencies for financial setbacks and market trends?
Do I understand my niche and mental health specializations? Am I advertising in a way that will focus on those specializations?
Do I have an accounting system?
Am I receiving full payment each time I provide a billable service?
If any of your answers to the above questions were less than a resounding YES, then your practice can and will benefit from working with a Consultant to fine tune your private practice for success.
We offer clinical consultation for licensed therapist who are working in community agencies or private practice settings. Our goal in clinical consultation is to enhance a therapist clinical skill set, produce more confidence in the clinical work and foster a better awareness of self. Working as a mental health therapist does not come with a playbook or guidebook; As licensed therapist you are constantly working from your education, experience, clinical instincts, and research. As a therapist you are moving from session to session and often unable to spend the time in between sessions to debrief and conceptualize clinical formulations. Clinical consultation offers a space to decompress, debrief and deconstruct complicated clinical cases for improved clinical results. We challenge our therapist in consultation to recognize transference and counter-transference issues that may hinder strong therapeutic bonds. Clinicians who invest in clinical consultation reports increased confidence in their clinical work, better awareness of self and a strong sense of professional support.
We offer clinical supervision for providers who are pre-licensed and aim to be licensed in Connecticut or/and New York. During clinical supervision, the pre-licensed provider meets with a licensed therapist to discuss cases, treatment strategies, and professional boundaries. We offer unique clinical supervision in that we incorporate holistic approaches to our supervision sessions. We assist our pre-licensed therapist in identifying their budding clinical strengths while learning innovative mental health techniques to incorporate in their work with clients. We recognize that daily clinical mental health work with distraught people can inherently be difficult; a key aspect of clinical supervision is often helping therapists learn to compartmentalize their own emotions and practice better self-care. Supervision requirements vary with the degree and license a therapist holds. In most cases, supervision takes a year or longer to complete. Please check with your state’s governing board regarding their requirements around clinical supervision.
