The landscape of private practice for mental health professionals is ever changing. The thriving practice must adapt, change, and continue to redefine its relevance to clients and referral sources. For the mental health professional just starting, to the large group practice, thriving practices take risks and differentiate themselves from the competition.

Dasenbrook Consulting specializes in the advancement of private practice for licensed mental health professionals. I have over 30+ years experience in running my own successful private practice. Since 1999 I have lectured throughout the country, concentrating my efforts on teaching colleagues how they, too, can succeed and thrive in private practice. Be skeptical of consultants and websites that promise you, “three easy steps” or the “10 ways” to become a wealthy therapist. It’s not easy. It’s hard work. But what in life that’s worthwhile isn’t hard work? I have done it and you can too. Let me share with you what has worked for me and thousands of other successful therapists. For the licensed mental health professional, Dasenbrook Consulting provides practice building products and a free home for the latest practice information. No membership fees, dues or members only section. The website is funded by sales of our products and services. For State Associations, Dasenbrook Consulting can provide a variety of Keynotes, workshops and seminars.
