You only thought you couldn’t succeed in private practice.

Influential Therapist is a place where you can dream BIG and build your business around your life (not the other way around).  I’ll guide you in many ways, including:

  • Helping you navigate through the internal and external blocks that keep you from taking action and achieving success
  • Showing you how to do what it takes to comfortably and confidently claim your spot as “the best choice” for those you serve
  • Giving you step-by-step proven strategies that will allow you to succeed quickly
  • Encouraging and helping you to achieve the autonomy and FREEDOM you deserve when doing the incredible work you do,  so you can take care of your clients while also taking care of you and those you love

You work hard helping others improve their lives and maximize their potential.  I’m here to do the same for you.  Whether you are just starting out, stuck in a rut, or contemplating what’s next, I’m here to take you every step of the way toward achieving your FREEDOM and your goals.


I’m Dr. Deb Legge, the founder of Influential Therapist and co-founder of the Private Pay Practice Program.  I know what it’s like to work so hard, only to be frustrated by the limitations set for me when working for others.  I know what it is like to put everything into your work, only to leave a huge part of your earning potential on your employer’s table.  I also know what it is like to dream about your ideal practice — setting your own hours, working with the clients you choose, and making more money than you ever thought possible.

I’ve walked that road, but 30 years ago, I took the “Leap of Faith” and I never looked back.  Private practice changed my life (and the lives of the people I love) for the better; it make me LOVE my work more than ever before.  What a blessing!

That experience also helped me to find one of my greatest passions — helping others gain the certainty, confidence, and clarity needed to build the Private Practices of their dreams; to gain the FREEDOM they deserve.  Influential Therapist is my way of reaching out to every clinician who is overworked, underpaid, and searching for MORE.

I will help you:

  • Gain confidence and see a clear path to growing your business
  • Get more clients for your private practice
  • Attract more private pay clients
  • Add clinicians and/or alternate streams of income
  • Build your credibility and become the go-to person for your target market so you never again  have to wonder about your next referral

No matter where you are on your private practice journey, I can help you reach your goals and build the private practice you’ve always wanted.

We’ll work best together if you’re looking for a guide on this incredible journey.   Your success is my mission.
