003 Where to Start

003 Where to Start

I suggest that any and all therapists, from day one,  begin learning certain skills and specific routines which will lead to the freedom that comes with being an independent clinician.  You may not be thinking right now that you want to start a private practice or maybe you are just beginning to consider it.  I didn’t seriously think about it for the first 8 years of my therapy career.  But, inevitably, you will one day at least consider it. If you can develop these skills and routines over time and avoid the “all of a sudden decision” of wanting to have a private practice or become an independent therapist, then you will be much better off.  I was doing many of the things I mention in this podcast before I had my own clinics. It certainly paid off toward that goal.
