When Babita Spinelli was moving away from a career as an attorney on Wall Street, she sought the help of a Therapist to make sense of the transition. From this experience, Babita decided to pursue her license and open a private practice of her own. While Babita sees a wide variety of clients, she specializes in helping individuals who are experiencing significant life transitions. List to the episode to learn more about Babita’s decision to enter the mental health field and how she built a thriving private practice.
On the Therapist Experience, we’ve often heard about clinicians that choose to enter the mental health field out of a desire to help others face challenges similar to their own. Trish McLean is one of these clinicians. When she opened her private practice, it was the result of personal struggles with mental wellness, as well as the challenges of caring for a family member with mental health issues of their own. By understanding her clients and connecting with them on a personal level, Trish was able to grow her business from a solo practice to a thriving group practice with multiple offices within a year.
In this episode of the Therapist Experience, we switch things up to chat with Emmy-nominated editor and director Roger Nygard. Roger has worked on a wide array of productions including “The Office”, “Curb Your Enthusiasm”, and “VEEP”. In his newest documentary, “The Truth About Marriage” Roger interviews everyday couples around the world as well as renowned experts like John and Julie Gottman. Listen to the episode to hear his insights about Hollywood, marriage, and why he believes we’re doing relationships all wrong.
When Lisa Savage started her practice in 2007, she had already begun to understand her target market. By having a plan in place for how she was going to attract clients, Lisa was able to see explosive growth – going from just herself and one other clinician to a current staff of 47.
This mindset of preparedness has continued to pay off for her practice. As businesses shut down and schools began to close with the onset of COVID-19, Lisa’s practice made a near-seamless transition to Telehealth without seeing any significant drop in revenue.
Listen to the episode to find out exactly how she did it.
Now that most of the country is multiple weeks into adjusting to the changes brought about by COVID-19, some things are starting to get easier. However, as schools let out for the rest of the year, and offices close indefinitely, challenges remain.
While almost every Private Practice has transitioned to working from home and conducting sessions over Telehealth, finding long-term solutions that allow for a secure and effective way to see clients is more important than ever.
On this episode of The Therapist Experience Podcast, we’re joined by Katie Lemieux of the Private Practice Startup to discuss how you can adapt to the challenges of Telehealth.
The outbreak of COVID-19 has pushed businesses from physical locations to online environments in a rapid and unprecedented way.
Every company, regardless of the industry, is now effectively a tech company. While it may feel like the sky is falling, there are significant opportunities to adapt to your business to this new environment, emerging on the other side of the economic downturn stronger and more versatile than ever before.
But what, exactly, does this mean for Therapists in Private Practice?
On today’s episode, we’re joined by Joe Sanok of Practice of the Practice to discuss new and creative ways you can serve your clients and support your business.
With recent events surrounding COVID-19, there have been big changes within behavioral health. While the industry rapidly shifts to telehealth, some practices are finding their daily calendars less full of appointments.
Because of this, there has never been a better time to create alternative ways to support your community and provide additional streams of revenue for your practice.
On today’s episode, we’re joined by Annie Schuessler of Rebel Therapist to discuss exactly how you can do this.
Kym Tolson operated a brick and mortar private practice for 12 years, and during this time found billing to insurance one of the most complicated aspects of her job. While outsourcing her insurance billing to an agency made things a bit easier, she frequently ran into issues that made her ask the question “can I do this myself?” By studying the myriad aspects of insurance billing, Kym was able to teach herself how to do it on her own. Now, in addition to running her own 100% online-based practice, Kym helps other clinicians navigate the waters of Telehealth insurance billing.
Nikissia Craig started her career in journalism, but quickly realized her path was playing a direct role in the lives of people who needed help as opposed to just listening to their stories.

While she had never seen this type of business model before, something told her she could create it. Listen to today’s episode to learn exactly how she did it.
