- One of the best ways to duplicate your efforts and also create a diversity of income is to add clinicians to your practice.
- Do you have a faith-based or faith-informed practice? How do you integrate (or not) that aspect of yourself in your practice?
- I happen to be a clergy person in the Episcopal Church. In my practice I am very transparent about that, but also adhere to the ethical boundaries that I feel are needed with that aspect of my personal life. I tell people, “I sometimes wear a funny collar and I don’t like to catch people off guard with that. I also do not have a ‘religious agenda’ with my counseling and therapy. I am happy to talk about those things with you. In fact I enjoy talking about those things, and have fun talking about those things. But you will never hear me talk about it first.”
- Let me know your thoughts on that. You can leave comments on Facebook and/or join my private Facebook Group where we can discuss it more. I would love to hear from you!
