The Therapist Experience Podcast
Welcome to The Therapist Experience Podcast, where we interview successful therapists about what it's really like to grow a successful private practice.
We discuss everything from marketing, the entrepreneurial journey, the importance of niching down, what to charge per session, how to incorporate the right technology, and the roller coaster of being a small business owner.
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. After becoming licensed, Nikissia noticed there were clients she had whom she wasn’t able to help, but who could benefit tremendously from a whole body, integrative health approach. 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.
When starting a business, it’s easy to come up with reasons why you shouldn’t. It can be so easy, in fact, that you can overlook all of the reasons why you should. When Anna Marcolin was considering making the move to a full-time private practice she thought she didn’t have enough experience, and that the Chicago area was too flooded with Psychotherapists already. By finding a mentor to tell her not only that she could do it, but all of the reasons why she should do it, Anna was able to find the success she envisioned.
Prior to 2018, Natalie Mica had a private practice in a small, rural community in Texas. During this time, she was a general clinician but started to realize that most of the clients she worked with were teen girls and women. When she opened an office in the Houston area in 2018, it seemed like the obvious choice to niche down and go after this demographic. However, figuring out how to market to her new niche didn’t come without its challenges. Listen to the episode to find out more.
