Why You'll Love This Course

Your money mindset has far-reaching impacts. It reaches into how you set fees, how you handle cancellations, what you do with unpaid balances, and much more. Even with a solid business plan, your beliefs regarding how to make more money in private practice can be a major barrier to success. Lindsay Bryan-Podvin helps you break through that barrier to reach your goals -- without giving up the values that led you to this work in the first place.

Course Description

Therapists in private practice don’t just do therapy. They are small business owners. As such, in addition to keeping clinical skills sharp, you have to learn about setting and maintaining strong financial goals, policies, and boundaries. For many clinicians, financial considerations come with a lot of hand-wringing. Is it possible to be a good therapist and be profitable? Can therapists be a part of the conscious capitalist movement? If you doesn’t accept insurance, are you doomed to only help financially privileged clients? This course addresses the mindset barriers that get in the way of reaching your financial goals, and practical strategies to create a sustainable business.
