getting started mastermind


Are you just getting started in private practice?

Let's face it, there is so much to learn and take-in when you are first getting started with private practice. 
This exclusive membership community is specifically for those clinicians that are in those initial stages of getting started in private practice.

If you are truly ready to get started in private practice and need a way to get some coaching and mentoring as you start, having a group of like-minded people to join you on your journey is the way to go!  Being part of a focused group is one of the best ways to get the return on your investment of your time and money.

  • Get the support and coaching you need to get started and established
  • Receive support from a group of peers on the same path in their journey
  • Learn where to focus to get the most "bang for your buck" of the investment of your time and money
  • Develop a plan and goals for long-term success

What you will get from the Practice Launch Club

  1. A specific and structured plan to know where to focus first and put your efforts.
  2. You will save yourself hours of time researching business practices and marketing skills.
  3. You will learn about technology that you can use to help you work effectively as you start and grow.
  4. You will learn how to get client referrals and build a referral base that will keep your practice sustained and growing.
  5. You will develop a support network of like-minded clinicians that will help you in your journey.
  6. You will gain the confidence, skills, and motivation you need to succeed and grow in your private practice venture.
  7. Give you the structure and accountability needed to put things into action

  • It is NOT group therapy
  • It is NOT a party or simple social gathering
  • It is NOT a place to gossip, vent or wine

How the Practice Launch Club is structured:

  • Meet for one hour a month by video conferencing.
  • Sharing of “wins” and “check-ins” from the previous month.
  • One person each month will have an opportunity to be on the “hot seat” so that attention is totally focused on them.
  • Communication with group members between meetings via private Slack board.
  • Setting goals and homework each month to put things into action.

Join me for the journey!

My career as a therapist and consultant began in 2001 when I finished grad-school and began working in the non-profit sector for an organization that provided intensive in-home therapy for at-risk youth.  It was one of the most challenging jobs I have ever had and taught me so much about how to be a great therapist.  It also gave me the opportunity to get licensed and work as a clinical consultant.

I went into private practice as therapist part-time to begin with which enabled me to work full-time and see private clients in the evenings and on weekends. In 2010 I made the big step of moving into private practice full-time.  In 2014 I formed a group practice, Kingsport Counseling Associates, PLLC, located in Kingsport, TN.  Currently I have 5 contract counselors working with me in my private practice.  I am a Licensed Marital and Family Therapist and AAMFT Approved Supervisor and adjunct instructor in the East Tennessee State University graduate counseling program.

One of my passions is to help others become successful in their work.  This the reason I started The Practice of Therapy and this website.  My hope is that you find the resources here useful and contribute to your success.

I would love to hear from you!  Let me know what is working best for you.  Also, I am here for you and would love to develop a relationship with you as a coach and consultant.  So glad you found me and these resources!  Let's get busy and build that private practice!
