Welcome, AMHCA Members!

Influential Therapist welcomes AMHCA members to our community! Be sure to sign up on our site, and we’ll keep you posted on what’s happening.

I’m thrilled to be collaborating with the American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA), to bring information, education, and support to their members who are interested or involved in private practice.  AMHCA is the only organization working exclusively for the mental health counseling profession.


Be sure to click on our Q & A page to submit your questions and suggestions for information you’d like to see presented in the ADVOCATE.  I look forward to your ideas for topics, and I’ll be sure to answer your questions; that’s just part of being in the Influential Therapist Community!

Each month, AMHCA members will have access to articles about the Business of Private practice, which I’ll be posting in the ADVOCATE.  We have a lot in store for you throughout the year, so be sure to stay connected to your AMHCA emails and the site to take advantage of this new service that AMHCA is offering its members.

If you are not already an AMHCA member, you’ll want to check it out!  In addition to the benefits you’ll receive in The Business of Private Practice, AMHCA membership has many benefits and opportunities that are included in membership.  For more information, and to become a member of AMHCA, click on this link:  https://www.amhca.org/

    Please advise me more about changes to billing codes. And why.

    Also, when will DSM 5 be official? Do you know if there are any seminars coming up on How to use and interpret DSM 5? I am in the San Antonio, Tx area.

    Thank you,
    Dr Elizabeth Wilhite

      @ Elizabeth – I will definitely keep you posted on the CPT changes and the DSM transition. I’ll also keep you informed with my articles in the AMHCA ADVOCATE and practice updates. Be sure to give us your email on the Influential site, and I’ll include you in our mailings too.

      Once we get closer to the DSM-5 release, I’m sure we’ll be seeing a lot of trainings. Thanks so much for the idea and the nudge — I’ll be sure to include that topic in the AMHCA articles as well as the Influential Therapist blog posts.
