072 – A Cash Pay Practice That Helps Clients With Life Transitions With Debora Davidson

Debora Davidson

Debora Davidson

Occupational Therapist

I was excited to get Dr. Debora Davidson, Occupational Therapist, on the podcast. Her cash pay private practice, Bright Futures, is not your typical therapy practice.She is helping adults transition through life’s difficulties. You have come across people who have difficulty making that jump from high school to college or transition from education to the work environment. She helps with these circumstances and more.

Her website says that “Engaging in positive and meaningful activities helps promote healthy development and personal transformation, and ultimately results in positive change.”  Debora is helping clients grow by encouraging that positive change through transitional support, guidance, and coaching.

Debora is helping other OT’s start a practice like hers. Be sure to check out her AuthenticOT website and definitely join her AuthenticOT Facebook Group.

069 – Insurance: How To Sign Up and Be In Network

The world of insurance is made confusing on purpose. If it were easy to navigate everyone would participate. This podcast doesn’t go into why you should or should not be an in network provider for insurance. That is more of a business philosophy question.

This podcast covers how to sign up to be in network with an insurance provider. Don’t bother writing down the steps. I have created a checklist with the links I mention to the websites and tools I have for you, along with the steps to be in network.
