My Personal Story &
How I Created IndependentClinician.com
“Do you treat privately?”
I thought the question would never come. I panicked. I had been asked several times and always said, "No."
This time was different. I was prepared, ready and confident. I had done my research. I had consulted with my mentors. I had a plan for how I would start my private practice and I was eagerly awaiting that question.
“Yes, I do!” I said confidently (yet terrified!)
“How much do you charge?”
My head was spinning, I had told myself that I would say $100 but instead I said, “$80 per hour.”
“Great, when can you come? And do you think we can we see you twice a week?”
And so it began :-)
