Nice try. I am rubber and you are glue. The assessments you assign bounce off me and stick to you.

Itโ€™s challenging to study for a huge massive state exam that determines your future when youโ€™re not in school. ๐Ÿ˜ณ๐Ÿ˜ซ

When you set up your private practice, a lot of the business decisions can feel irrelevant to the relationships that you'll be setting up with your clients. That's short-sighted and can hurt both your business and your clinical practice. It's important to think through what you're doing and put strong business systems in place. For your own sake and for your clients. Listen to this week's episode to learn more about Bad Business Practices for therapists. . . . . .

I remember sitting in that nursery on Sunday nights, rocking my sweet 9 month old daughter to sleep, with tears in my eyes, knowing that I had to leave her the next day to go to work. I freaking used to HATE Sunday nights. The weekend was over. Short lived per usual. Only 2 days to feel like I was actually getting to LIVE my life and enjoy my family. Cue the Sunday Night Blues. Every. Single. Sunday. ๐Ÿ˜ซ

I had been feeling like there was something MORE for my life for a while. But I was scared to make a change. I remember one day just saying out loud--"Welp, This is it. I'm freaking stuck." Doctorate degree and grad school loans. And there I was working 50 hours a week for someone who didn't give a crap about how hard I worked. I sat there rocking my daughter and I was just OVER it!
So I decided I wasn't DOWN for working long hours to make someone else's dreams come true anymore. I needed to make a move, because no one else was going to change my life but me. So I took a risk and started my first business which I still run today. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿปโค And I said โœŒ๐Ÿปto that boss that didn't appreciate my value!
Then 2 years into that business another opportunity was presented. One that I had been TOTALLY hating on for a WHILE. ๐Ÿ˜ณ#biggestskepticaward ๐Ÿ†goes to yours truly! ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผ
I didn't want ANY part of that online biz crap! ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿผ But the darkness of my life was real. The desires of my heart were DEEP! And when I looked into the mirror I just felt like I needed a new challenge. A change. I needed something different. And I felt like God wouldn't let me to say NO to this opportunity. THANK GOD he knows better than me! ๐Ÿ™๐ŸปAnd now #thelegacyproject has become my freaking PASSION! I truly feel like I am finally living my true calling.๐Ÿ˜ So listen up--YOU are not trapped! If you are sitting there right now with that sweet kiddo in your arms that you just don't want to leave tomorrow.
If you have the pit in your stomach when you think about Monday morning.
If you keep finding yourself DREAMING about another life. A life where you can call the shots, you don't have to beg someone else to take time off with your kids & hubs, where you can take a vacay..drop an emoji below๐Ÿ‘‡

What are you talking about John? Finances, specially a financial plan. One of the questions that will most likely pop up when writing up your plan is 'Do I need financial backing?' Personally I've built and scaled multiple practices without any.

The last thing you want to do is play catch-up when starting out in your business.

Take it slooow.

Soo due to some unforeseen incidents happening in the month of August. I now have to revamp my entire BUDGET to Accommodate those expenses. In life things happen and will throw you off course. But how you respond to those issues will determine your success. I could have easily just sit back and felt sorry for myself and let things get totally out of hand and go further into debt. HOWEVER, your GIRL has decided to put on my ๐ŸฅŠ ๐ŸฅŠ ๐ŸฅŠ and fight back. My mom always say the following quote: Bought sense is the BEST sense! Well this week I LEARNED a valuable lesson within my private practice that is costing me a hefty fee. God knows this week has been trying but thank GOD I made it. Thank GOD for my support system. When I wanted to give up they encourage me to continue and GrOW through this process. #Blessed #LCSW #therapist #therapistproblems #Therapistlife #LMSW #LPC #budget #budgetplanner #Debtfree #debtfreecommunity #debtfreejourney #debt #privatepractice

Friday was possibly the most challenging day of my career so far. For two hours, I sat directly across from an attorney who sternly questioned my education, my career path, my therapeutic techniques, my treatment of a client, and my documentation strategies. She did her job well, and throughout the meeting I questioned all the same things she did, but in a much more personal and anxious way. But after it was over, I decided to try not to focus on all the things I thought I did wrong, what I wish I had done differently, or what I think might happen later. Instead I want to try to remember the positive lessons that can come from this experience and how I can grow as a clinician and person.

I had some failures and disappointments this week. I have been in a funk. In an unmotivated state. In addition, Iโ€™ve been having anxiety-dreams. Actually, I have similar dreams here-and-there my whole life. Itโ€™s the same theme... It is me trying to get somewhere & there are all kinds of hurdles that blocks me from the destination.
The most vivid dream lately is me trying to get to a place..but when I try to use my phone to google the address it gets all messed up and I canโ€™t (lol my dreams are upgraded to 2018 issues). I tried yelp, didnโ€™t work. I tried texting someone, but I kept keying in the wrong words..I tried getting others around me to help, and they stall me by having weird conversations I donโ€™t recall. The whole dream is basically a state of panic. I usually wake up feeling really shitty. It takes a lot of self-care to bring me back... being me back to baseline. I realize my stress in my reality-life affect me so much that it shows up in my dreams. And/or that the dreams provide some sort of wake up call. Anyways, this has been me this week. #anxiety #anxietyquotes #anxietyawareness #therapistlife #therapistproblems #therapistneedtherapytoo #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters #mentalhealthawareness #rantspire

SimplePractice is a life saver! I never promote someone else's product unless I use it myself. I've been using it for years and it's one of the major factors that helped me with scaling my group practice.

So if paperless intakes and accepting clients payments at the click of a button sounds enticing, I encourage you to click the link in the bio and see how I use it for my practice!
