Private Practice Building

in Services

Thinking about starting your own private practice? 

Considering expanding a solo practice into a group practice? 

Need guidance and feedback on marketing, business practices, or office aesthetics? 

                       Let Dana help you out! 

There are a number of common thoughts that swirl around in the heads of therapists considering venturing into the world of private practice or attempting to grow their existing practice: 

  • There's no way I can be my own boss. 
  • I’m a therapist. How can I possibly think like a business person?
  • I have no idea how to even get started. It just feels too daunting! 
  • I'd like to grow/expand my current practice but am not sure what all goes into that type of venture. 
  • I feel guilty considering making a good living as a therapist.
    I know I'm a good therapist but I don't feel comfortable marketing my business. 
  • My office needs a new look but I'm not sure where to start. 


Leaving the security and structure of an agency or other mental health organization and going into private practice can be an intimidating and daunting prospect. Many therapists stay “stuck” where they are because they don’t feel they have what it takes to be successful on their own. Other therapists have made the leap but don’t know what to do to take the next step to really expand on what they’ve started.

Working with a professional experienced in developing, managing and growing a successful private practice can save you valuable time and money versus trying to struggle through it by yourself, hoping to figure things out as you go.

In addition to being a licensed therapist for over 20 years, Dana has a master’s degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing as well as the personal experience of starting The Balanced Life and growing it exponentially over the last few years. When she and her husband were first starting out, she recalls feeling like they were floundering about trying to find the best way to start a business and then to grow it successfully. There were mistakes made along the way that cost time, money and frustration that might have been avoided if someone had guided them through those early days, and served as an objective source of guidance, feedback and information.

Dana provides private practice consulting by phone, virtually, and on-site with mental health service providers to bring powerful, personalized support for all aspects of private practice development. All consultations are tailored to your specific needs because every therapist and every practice is unique.

Let Dana help you invest in yourself and your continued growth as a clinician. Every day you wait is time, money and clients lost. What are you waiting for?
