Business Coaching for Mental Health Therapists

Congrats! You're ready to start or grow your own Private Psychotherapy Practice!


Now what?


You've done all the training to do amazing clinical work.  You've listed yourself tons of directory sites for therapists and handed out business cards. You're ready to help people! But the phone isn't ringing and you have no idea how to fill the empty spaces on your calendar with clients that you KNOW you can help.

When we go to graduate school to be mental health counselors, no one teaches us how to run a successful business.  Marketing? Business Planning? How does all of that even work? 

I've been there.  I had the motivation to build a private practice, but I didn't know where to start and was lacking the basic business principles to build a strong foundation for my business.

Finally, I hired a business coach.  And I learned everything that I never knew and need to know to make my practice vision a reality. I am now the proud owner of Peaceful Living Mental Health Counseling, a successful private group therapy practice in Westchester, NY.

I also discovered how much I love teaching other therapists and simplifying the business building process for them so they can achieve the same dream while helping others.


 Learning how to start or grow the private practice of your dreams IS possible. Get in touch today to learn more about how I can help you build your ideal private practice.


Why hire a business coach for therapists?

Deciding to hire a business coach for your wellness practice is an investment of time AND money.  You want to make sure that you get a return on that investment so that commitment is worth it!​


But I'll be totally honest with you...


Investing in business coaching is only worth it if you're willing to take the information you learn from our business coaching sessions and put it into action.

I love helping therapists learn effective marketing strategies and get organized so they can start to see results, but the responsibility to take that information and put it into action is totally on you.

It's not easy building and running your own therapy practice, but it's definitely worth it if you want greater control over your own schedule, finances, and decision making in how you operate as a therapist.

I have owned and operated my own group practice, Peaceful Living Mental Health Counseling, since 2015. During that time, I've learned a thing or two about being self employed and being an employer.  I love to share those insights and guidance for therapists seeking to attract clients and expand their businesses. Whether you're a beginner or looking to scale your practice, I'd love to share my expertise with you if you're willing to make the commitment to get results.

Here is what you can expect from private practicing coaching with me:

  • Learning effective marketing strategies to promote your practice without feeling "salesy"

  • Understanding principles of business planning and how to apply them to your practice

  • Learning and implementing concrete systems that automate your workflow and free up your time so you can do more of the clinical counseling work that you love 

  • How to grow your private practice and hire other clinicians

  • Other creative ways to increase your income beyond seeing therapy clients 

  • Effective digital marketing strategies, including:

    • how to build an awesome therapy website that makes clients want to call you​

    • Easy-to-understand SEO strategies that make it easier for therapy clients to find you online

    • how to use the power of social media to attract your ideal clients

    • ...and lots more!
