Kadeisha: I'm living in service to my highest and best self, and I am receiving and embracing who I am as a business person, entrepreneur, and multigifted, multipassionate human being...I'm serving my family, my dreams, my vision, and my calling and I'm more committed to staying in alignment" -- October 2022 Working Session
And starting a business that's focused on helping people is a skillset of its own. Your work in community mental health, agencies, and even other practices may have given you a lot of models of what NOT to do.
Christy: "The meditation that Miranda led us through just now helped to bring me greater clarity on what my niche should be, especially given what feels good to me physically, mentally and emotionally and making me realize that my people-pleasing tendencies have been coming out by taking on clients that don't align with my ideal client. Oh, and, that I should probably get back into my own therapy to work through some of these issues." -- October 2022 Working Session
You're not expected to learn every single detail of being a great business owner, private practice therapist, marketer, and employer in a few weeks or months. This lifetime program allows you to make MAJOR changes in a short timeframe while giving you the space and opportunities to become an expert over the long term.
What we love about our work is helping therapists like you fulfill their purpose, be the best clinician they can be, and make a life-changing impact on every client they meet.
Cynthia from Los Angeles came to us in August of 2020. Her regular position had been eliminated due to the pandemic. She was licensed as a therapist and wanted to do therapy work, so she started working for one of the big online mental health companies. She came to us overworked and underpaid. A year later, she makes in an hour what she made in a week of working for the online therapy provider. Her practice is full, she can easily take a vacation, and she's reaching the people who need her!

We don't believe in a one-size-fits-all solution for therapists. You have your own desires and life circumstances that influence your vision of an ideal practice, and we're here to help you build AND sustain it. The Business School for Therapists program is designed to let you move at your own pace, decide what you need, and get support from not only the community but also our coaches in a way that aligns with the particular lifestyle and business YOU want.
Every bit of the material gives you options for choosing the best path for you (including the WHY behind choosing one path or another). And we have coaches who will help you when you get stuck in determining which of the available paths is right for you.
No matter what's going on in the world, people need access to mental health care... and with all the recent changes these past several years, now's the time to get clear about your next steps in private practice. Not just for your clients, but for you, too. Because a sustainable practice is not only affirming of the work you do but also the path toward a future where there's more financial security and more time for the people and experiences you value.
You want to create a solid business foundation to save time, energy, money, and heartache! And in order to do that, there are a few types of time we ask you to set aside:
Is it out of our scope — talking about taxes, financial planning, legal structure, or employment law? Those are examples of topics where we brought in someone for an exclusive Q&A or to provide an entire training on that topic for our community, and you can watch the recording any time and anywhere.
You WON'T be asked or encouraged to build your practice by investing hundreds or thousands of dollars in Facebook ads, Google ads, etc. In fact, we'll show you how to advertise everywhere for FREE and how to ensure your marketing is leading to new clients before you spend a dime on advertising.
For as long as we offer the program, you get access to everything including updated materials, all live Working Sessions, Q&As with Private Practice Experts Kelly + Miranda, and more! You get to ask unlimited questions twice a year, get updates on all future materials, and will be able to access the material year-round.
Topics include: Growing from scratch, SEO, finding your niche.
But right now, more than ever, you need guidance and support to make sure your business is rock-solid. And not because doom and gloom are around the corner, but because people need us MORE than ever. Not to mention that you're going to need a practice that can sustain and really take care of you and your family. This isn't just your calling; this is your profession and your livelihood. It's okay to be supported by this work!
Explore the case studies, explore your own process. Only you know what trainings you need to make your business viable and impactful. Your partner needs you to have a successful business and to come home with energy for them and your life together.
