It’s easy to get bogged down in the technology that we use for our private practice. So many distractions. What works? What’s worth my time? What will save me time and make my life easier?
Below is a list of tools that I use every day. It’s not a complete list, rather a list of the most important and useful therapy business tools that I use. Please leave a comment below and let us know what tools help you with your practice.
In my many years of interviewing and consulting with private practitioners I have found a common thread when it comes to newbie mistakes. I want to share these with you in hopes that you can avoid them from the get go and begin private practice on the right foot. If you are already in private practice, this list will still help you evaluate where you are and where you want to go.
There are many forms that a private practice or therapy business entity can take, ranging from a solo practitioner to a corporate practice with shareholders. The legal entity you choose should be determined by the laws of your particular state( that varies tremendously from state to state), and what you want to offer or provide in your entity. Find out the rules and regulations within your state and make sure you conform. The best place to look for information is with the division that issues your professional licenses, usually the State Education Department.
