"I want to start a Private

Practice but......." 

By: Sheralyn Shockey-Pope, LMFT


Sherry is a private practice therapist and the past president of our sister organization, Inland Empire CAMFT. Most of us are not taught how to develop or manage a business. As therapists, we sometimes lack the resources and know-how to step out and create a business plan. Sherry's presentation will examine why as mental health professionals, we spend a great deal of time learning how to be excellent therapists and we develop skill sets that enable us to deliver high quality services, but we are not as successful as we would like to be in our practice. Since we are not taught how to develop or manage a business, we begin to doubt ourselves and our abilities, often settling for safest route of agency work. Sherry's presentation will provide practical tips to building a successful private practice, and discuss how to move past the mindset of fear.

Join us Friday and learn the following:

  1. How a therapist can make a good living in private practice.
  2. How to structure your workdays.
  3. Website basics that every therapist should know.
  4. How to stand out in a crowded market and how to be seen.
  5. How to utilize social media without wasting time.
