About Us

Influential Therapist was established to help you kick-start, build, or re-vamp your Private Practice.  We exist to serve mental health and coaching professionals — people who make their living helping others.

You work hard helping others improve their lives and maximize their potential.  We are here to do the same for you.  Whether you are just starting out, or stuck in a rut, Influential Therapist is here to educate, guide, and encourage you as you achieve your goals.

Influential Therapist is a place where you can dream BIG and get whatever you are willing to work for.  We’ll help you in lots of ways, including:

  • building your confidence to take the “Leap of Faith” into Private Practice
  • encouraging you to set and achieve bold goals that will make a difference in your life and lives of the people you love
  • providing the information you need to move toward those goals in a step-by-step fashion that feels right to you
  • helping you to achieve:  Autonomy, Freedom, and Independence

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.  20 years ago, I took the “Leap of Faith” — I’ve never looked back.  It 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 build the Private Practice of their dreams.  I’ve been doing that for many years, and Influential Therapist is my way of reaching out to every clinician who is searching for MORE.

I’m laser focused on helping you cultivate more clients for your private practice.  Find out more about our Elevation group coaching program here:  www.privatepaypractice.com
