I remember what it was like to have the dream of treating private clients but being terrified to start.
My resources are designed to give you two things:
For every day that goes by [that you aren't treating private therapy clients] both you and your clients are missing out.
You are missing out on the freedom, flexibility and income that comes with starting your own business.
Remember: you already have the clinical skills to help your clients succeed.
Now is the time to get started. I'm here to help you!

Rarely have a met a speech, occupational or physical therapist who hasn't dreamed of owning a private practice... someday.
Having the ability to set your own hours, decide your hourly rate, be your own boss, make your own treatment decisions and treat only your ideal clients is ideal.
Both new and experienced clinicians alike often dream of their future in private practice and view it as the "final step" in their career after they've gained some experience in the field.
As their experience working for others grows, the dream of private practice may also grow as they long to escape from the bureaucratic reality of working in schools and hospitals.
