Wow… I’m so proud of Influential Therapist. Thank you all!
Here’s a comment from the “How may I help YOU?” post…
The first thing I would like to say is THANK YOU! I have been perusing your website for about 6 months now, while I do the “groundwork” of making the leap. I am supervising in a community mental health agency and it has become AWFUL!! The paperwork has become unmanageable and the pay is an insult. Despite this, I have still waffled. Whether with the insurance panels or just flat out terror at being a small business owner. Each time though, it seems one of your wonderful emails comes to my inbox and says just what I need to hear to keep me from getting stymied. I have recommended your site to several friends who are hoping to make the leap as well, and I am sure it will be as helpful for them as it has been for me. Thanks again for offering this invaluable resource! ~Vanessa
Vanessa teaches us two things here. First, timing is EVERYTHING! Second, there is safety in numbers.
If you’ve been hesitating to go into practice because you feel “alone”, consider sharing your space with other independent professionals. It’s a great way to get your expenses paid right out of the gate!
Does that sound a bit more do-able? You can learn more about this option and much more in the free webinar: 7 Steps to FREEDOM in Private Practice.
Watch it and let me know what you think!
I have subscribed to your blog and I have read everyone of your blog post. I even created notes in an app on my phone so that I could access them with ease. I’m ready to take my leap. My biggest thing is that figuring out where my referrals should come from (creating my marketing list) as a pastoral counselor.
However, on a good note: I read your blog post for the ACA on getting on insurance panels and found out that Aetna uses pastoral counselors for their clients and that there is even a taxonomy code for pastoral counselors to get a NPI.
I have decided to make August the month where I look at what I’ve done in the past and what I need to change to get my practice up and going.
@Nakita – I’m so thrilled for you! I know from your emails and comments that you have been working very hard to gather the information and courage you needed to take your “leap”. Now that you’ve committed yourself to getting your practice up and running you might really benefit from some coaching. Let me know when I can help. Congratulations Nakita!
