The truth is I never planned on going into private practice. In graduate school, they barely spoke about it and when they did they told me I wouldn’t make any money. So I did what everyone told me to do and I got an agency job. Six years and a couple of promotions later, I was burnt out. It was time for a change, so I dabbled in private practice by renting space from someone on an hourly basis. From there, I opened a group practice called “Caring Therapists of Broward” and built a robust and profitable group practice by taking insurance and ensuring quality care with effective systems within the practice.

I always knew I wanted to go in to private practice, so when I graduated with my Doctorate I chose not to do a traditionally post doc and instead started my practice right away. I was convinced that because I knew so many Physicians in my community and others having grown up in West Palm Beach, I would fill up quickly! Boy was I wrong! I started hustling. I worked a number of different jobs teaching, per diem work, because let’s be honest, growing a private practice doesn’t happen over night. But…then it did. I took courses, watched other business owners, networked, and figured out the tricks to growing my practice. Shortly after I got my License, I opened a Group Practice. I started with one therapist, then two, and kept growing. There are ways to build a thriving private practice and I enjoy helping others do that!

LET US HELP YOU BUILD A SUCCESSFUL PRACTICE

 Being in private practice can feel very lonely. You are in your office all day, by yourself. If you’re lucky, you pass a few colleagues in the hallway when you go to get your clients. You might even be new to private practice and feel like a fish out of water when you think about starting.

It’s been talked about before, but the reality is that graduate school did not teach us how to run a successful business. Most of us never learned about profit and loss, marketing strategies, business acumen, reconciling your books and how to build a profitable practice. Make no mistake—private practice IS a business! And one you have to understand to be successful.

There are a lot of people out there running practices that just aren’t profitable (yet). Perhaps you live in an area where EVERYONE accepts insurance. Maybe your expenses are high because you live in an area where real estate for commercial property is sky high. We see you, and we know the struggle.
