Starting, Maintaining and Expanding a Successful Private Practice: Surviving or Thriving?

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.

This 2-day private practice webinar or workshop is designed for the clinician who is planning to start a practice within the next year, or for those who have started a small practice and wish to expand. Given the 2-day format, participants will be able to explore more in depth the essential components of startup, business entities, money management, billing, office procedures, social media, public speaking, advertising and marketing that each participant needs to develop a plan to start or expand a practice with actionable steps with proven techniques. Get all your questions answered. Do it right the first time. Most small businesses fail in the first year. Don’t let that be you.

Also included is a 25 minute follow up private consultation with the presenter.

A History of Success: Norm Dasenbrook, LCPC with IMHCA is the longest standing private practice workshop in the Midwest. He has 20+ years of helping mental health professionals launch and expand a successful private practice.
