Start Your Debt-Free Private Practice!

Even if

  Have no idea where to start

  Have no clue how to get clients

  Have no prior business experience (or a ton of time to catch up on it

You love the field of speech-language pathology, BUT...

You wish you had more control over the therapy you give.

You are struggling to keep up the productivity and paperwork demands and don't have enough time for yourself or your family.

You are sick and tired of other people deciding what is best for your clients.

You find yourself thinking...

"Is this all there is?"

"Can I do better for myself, my clients and my family?"

"Is it even possible for me to be a fantastic SLP
while having better work/life balance?"

The quick answer? Yes, you CAN start your own Private Practice, take your time back, give yourself the flexibility you need, and be an excellent SLP!

But don’t take my word for it:

The long answer, there’s a reason you’re so stressed right now. 

IT'S NOT YOUR FAULT AND
SOMETHING HAS TO GIVE.

Why do some SLPs follow the path to private practice?

And many more dream about it... but never do it?

Keep reading... because what I'm about to tell you can change your life, just as it did mine.

There Are Many Different Ways to
Have a Private Practice

One day, a chance discussion over lunch revealed that two of my co-workers had small private practices "on the side" of the job they did with me. My mind was blown -

I never knew it was possible to have a part-time private practice!

Or "On The Side" and Around Your Schedule

As they told me more about their set up, I was shocked to learn that neither of them had an office.

They saw their private clients in the client's homes.

I had never heard of such a thing! I always assumed that having a private practice meant renting expensive clinic space.

Who knew that you could see clients in their homes...!?

Or Treat Clients in Their Homes

They also shocked me when they said that both of them were private pay only and didn't deal with insurance.

When they revealed their private rate, I did some quick math and quickly realized that they were making significantly more money in just a few hours a week than entire days at our regular job.

Now I wasn't "all about the money" but this peaked my attention!

Or Be Private Pay Only

The biggest shocker of all was when they suggested that I start seeing my own clients... NOW.

At the time, I was only a year out of my CF.

I never thought I could start a private practice early in my career.

I was excited and terrified at the same time.

Or Start When You're Ready

I chose to see clients in their homes but many SLPs decide to see clients via telepractice. There are pros and cons for each.

Or See Clients Via Telepractice

I was extremely lucky to have two mentors take me under their wings and show me the ropes. With their information and guidance, I was able to start my own successful private practice in 2006.

While most SLPs (historically) get started with in-person services, starting with telepractice follows the exact same rules for set-up from a business perspective.

Since 2008, I have helped thousands (yes - thousands!) of SLPs start their own private practices.

And now I want to help YOU!

SUCCESSFUL PRIVATE PRACTICES
DON'T BUILD THEMSELVES.


Question For You...

Want To Have a Private Practice
But Not Sure How to Start?

Here. Start Here.

Whether you've been dreaming of starting a private practice for years...

Or an opportunity to see a private client has fallen into your lap...

Private practice is the ONLY way to get the freedom, flexibility and income you deserve.

Starting a private practice takes WORK, and trying to figure everything out alone will leave you feeling OVERWHELMED, DRAINED and WORRIED that you made a mistake or missed a step.

Good news!

I've developed a step-by-step system that allows you to help more people while making more money by working in private practice full-time or even "on the side."

It’s possible to go from “regular” clinician to successful private practitioner so you can help more people while making more money -

(even without a business background!)

You're one click away from implementing The Start Your Private Practice methodology so you can FINALLY:

be your own boss...

control your schedule...

make more money...

and do what’s best for your clients.

You'll Learn the New Way 
to 
Start a Private Practice

There is no such thing as a perfect private practice; only one that’s perfect for YOU.

There are a lot of misconceptions about what private practices “look like” and how they “should” be.

I teach a “new way” to start a private practice:

  • Minimize financial risk and overwhelm by starting with clients “on the side”

  • Minimize overhead and liability by seeing clients in their homes

  • Start your private practice NOW vs. waiting until the end of your career

  • Start off as private pay only and wait to become an insurance provider until you absolutely need to

**Moral of the story**

You can have that big bustling brick and mortar practice with a waiting room and employees and all of that LATER.

I teach people how to “start smart” and grow when you are ready - not all at once.

This process is broken down into simple, step-by-step modules that allow you to easily walk through each of the five phases of starting a successful private practice.

At the end of each module is an easy-to-follow checklist so you can methodically implement what you’ve learned.

No guesswork.

Just follow the plan.

Private practice is right for you if:

  • You're ready to practice the way YOU want to, the way that is right for your clients.

  • You want to be more financially secure without killing yourself to get there.

  • You're ready to do more in your career as a speech-language pathologist.

  • You're tired of being owned by your employer and are ready to cut out the middle man.

Private practice is NOT right for you if:

  • You are okay with being limited in terms of how much you can earn.

  • You like other people to be in charge of deciding when you work and how you work.

  • You aren't willing to do the work.

“If you don't build your dream someone will hire you to help build theirs.”

- Tony Gaskins

Private practice allows you to:

  • ​Do what is right for your clients

  • Be your own boss

  • Be there for your family

  • Make your own hours

  • Earn the income you deserve

  • Stop feeling pressured by supervisors and bosses

ENROLL NOW

Scared of Making a Mistake?

Honestly,the biggest mistake you can make is not starting.

There are easy ways to minimize your personal, financial and legal risk.

If you stay stuck in a state of "analysis paralysis" you will never be a successful private practitioner.
