The Future of Private Practice

Presented by Lynn Grodzki, LCSW, MCC on 05-21-2018 at 9 a.m. Pacific (noon Eastern) to 10:30 a.m. Pacific (1:30 p.m. Eastern)

Whether you are new to private practice or an experienced clinician, you deserve to have an ideal practice: one that provides you with personal satisfaction and profitability. Success in private practice is not just based on what you do, it also relies upon how you are including your values and your vision as a business owner. 

In this 90-minute marketing webinar, Lynn Grodzki, LCSW, MCC will explain how private practice mental health professionals can promote their values and vision. She will cover skills private practice therapists need to boost an entrepreneurial mindset, and discuss outlines and mindset elements therapists can adopt for a stronger practice. She will also present key business “mantras” that provide a guide for following consistent, safe, and strategic business actions. 

Lynn will offer pragmatic ideas for better marketing through branding, including how to convert potential clients into paying clients. She will explain strategies to improve client retention and ways to allow clients to see a return on their investment of time and energy. Lynn will explain how therapists and counselors can learn what to do and what not to do when building their business, and most importantly, how to avoid potential pitfalls that cause even good, well-intentioned therapists to fail in business. Lynn will discuss how using holistic, clear, and articulate skills on practice building can help therapists exhibit more confidence, not just competence, as they go further on their business journey.  

This introductory instructional level web conference is designed to help clinicians:

  1. Utilize a basic three-step business model to clarify business challenges.
  2. Compare the opposing concepts of service and profit to allow more comfort in charging full fees.
  3. Apply more referrals with strategies within your comfort zone.
  4. Recognize and reduce limiting beliefs that sabotage financial business success.
  5. Practice how to love both the craft and the business of therapy in equal measure.
