Private Practice Naysayers

Starting your own business brings Devil's Advocates out in force - but creating a private practice can also really amp up the self-doubt and negative self-talk. How do you keep from letting naysayers get stuck in your gears?

As you gain momentum and as you keep building take time to check in with yourself. Are you getting what you want? Does what you're building fit? Are you making choices instead of sacrifices?

What do you want in your practice? Like truly profoundly want. Not what you think y…

Happy Boss's Day, Allison!

Hey everybody, it’s Megan here with a sneak blog!

I wanted to take this space and write a quick piece on National Boss’s Day, Allison, and what Abundance Practice Building means to me.

You could say I’m a late bloomer in a lot of ways. I didn’t even really know that was a thing that existed out of teen movies - I always thought that maybe if you didn’t bloom by your high school graduation you were some kind of cactus/potato hybrid, something kinda squat and potentially prickly and that’s all there…

Guest Post: From Agency to Private Practice – How Private Practice Saved My Career

Recently, as I left the office of my newly opened private practice, I was struck with a realization: despite having worked a thirteen hour day, I was feeling energized. In fact, I realized I had been feeling this way for a few weeks now. It didn’t make sense. I had worked shorter days at my agency and yet felt infinitely more miserable and exhausted. That’s when my internal therapist piped up, reminding me that this was probably something to pay attention to. I want to share my reflections on th…

Is Your Practice Eating Your Life?

I’ve blogged through miscarriages, and stockpiled enough blogs to last me through a maternity leave. I’ve blogged through sickness and varying degrees of anxiety. I’ve blogged through and about being sued. I’ve blogged through a lot of fear and not-enoughness. I’ve blogged through buying and moving into a new home and sick kids and sick family members.

Consistency is one of the most accurate measures of whether or not a business prospers. I get an A+, good for me. And I’m also about to make a cas…

Private Practice Won't Solve Your Problems

I love private practice. It changed my life. It changed my family’s life. It made me love therapy more than I ever had. It opened up opportunities I never knew were available.

 

I have also had moments of hating private practice. The weeks without phone calls. The insecurity. The inconsistent income. The many new skills I had to learn.

 

As a Private Practice Proselytizer, I want people to know that they can have so much of what they want in life through private practice (assuming they want time, fr…

Charging Too Much?

So, let’s talk about whether you’re charging too much.

 

There are two groups here:
  1. The people who have some money stuff to work through that aren’t actually charging too much, but fear they are (cue imposter syndrome, not-enoughness, fear people won’t pay it, etc.) They’re usually in the process of accepting a new fee and it’s uncomfortable but it passes after stating the fee several times and seeing that people aren’t punching you in the face when you say it and many are happy to pay it. Depe…

The Abundance Mindset: It Only Took Me Two Years to Develop It

Danielle Kepler has been a big part of the Abundance Practice-Builders FB Group since its early days. I refer to her Insurance Credentialing & Billing For Mental Health Professionals FB Group at least weekly. This woman KNOWS insurance. I love this blog post because Danielle gets real about feeling competitive, being overly full, and toeing the line of burnout… and how she stopped being an “insecure shit” and embraced a more abundant mindset.
