We sell a checklist for beginning your solo psychotherapy practice. It has over 20 items to consider and put in to action in order to help you embark on your journey. Many mental health professionals just use this check list to help jump start the process. Others use it as a starting point and follow up with a coaching session to work on a specific area (marketing, figuring out a specialty, going over insurance or EAP information, pitfalls to avoid, support in your new endeavor, etc.).  Or you may choose a coaching session, of which the checklist is included as part of your first 60 min session.      If you would like to just purchase the checklist or check out other tools/skills for therapists visit our Etsy Store.

    "Lisa quickly helped me build a practice from the ground up. Within 6 months of being coached by Lisa, I was getting a   consistent  flow of referrals, was on several insurance panels, and had built a strong referral and support network with other mental health colleagues. Four years later, my practice is full and I know whenever I have a question or need support Lisa is there for me."  Nicole Kramer, LCSW   

"Lisa Friedman, LCSW provides superior knowledge to help you study and pass the state licensure exam as well as guidance and support in starting a private practice." Kacee Tannenbaum, LCSW

"Lisa has been such an amazing support system for me. From studying for the lcsw exam, to working in agencies to starting my own private practice. She guides you each step of the way and helps you avoid pitfalls. She is loyal and committed and always has your best interest. I have always seen her as a mentor with incredible love and passion for what she does. I would highly recommend her not just because she’s an amazing therapist but because she’s a genuine individual."
