Demystifying Private Practice
From Basics to Abundance
August 25th-28th, 2023
Are you considering starting a private psychotherapy practice but have fears about the process? Are you a new practice owner and still have concerns about your process or next steps? Are you anxious about legal and ethical considerations of owning a private psychotherapy practice?
Join us for a 4-day retreat in sunny Aruba to unpack and unravel many of the basics needed to get your private practice running. The workshops will span topics such as operations, business management, marketing and branding, compliance, finances, ethics, burnout, and mental and emotional blocks. There will also be opportunities to consult with the presenters about your unique private practice needs. The goal by the end of the workshop is to address all of your questions and concerns about establishing and maintaining a thriving private practice.
It’s OK if you don’t know what you don’t know. This retreat will be a safe space to confront your concerns and to gain confidence in your private practice.
