Are you interested in learning more about private practice as a professional choice, but cannot find accurate information?

Are you interested in learning more about private practice but do not even know what questions to ask or where to start?

Are you curious to know if private practice could even be an option for you?

Are you ready to take the first step to being your own boss and having control over your schedule?


  If you answered YES to any of these questions,  we urge you to attend the course.  “WHERE WOULD I START?”

 Have you ever asked yourself this question, especially  anytime the exciting idea of having your own private counseling practice sneaks into your thoughts?

Sue Clifford, LPC-S and Suzanne Davis-Thomas, LPC-S took the leap into the private practice world. But they had to discover the “ins & outs” of private practice on their own through costly and time-consuming trial & error. There was nobody to turn to for “how-to” guidance and many discouraged them from trying.

 NO MORE! They would like to pass along their helpful & successful private practice knowledge to other counseling professionals. Learn what to do and what NOT to do.

 Learn SPECIFIC how-to info, get a list of resources, and sample forms. Take tests to see if private practice matches your goals and lifestyle. A step-by-step Workbook that will take you through the exciting world of starting a practice is included.

The course has recently expanded to two parts!

Part I - Will cover the "basics" of starting a practice, including a step-by-step plan to guide you through the beginning phase. This is a six-hour course filled with & money saving tips. (9:00 am - 4:00 pm)

 Part II - Will focus on accepting insurance in your practice. You will be guided step by step from the application process through getting accepted by insurance companies. We will highlight the most common "speed bumps" as well as provide strategies to get you rolling right over them! To get you started FAST, you will be provided with a contact list (featuring contact phone numbers and web sites) for over 30 of the largest and most common insurance providers in Texas. This two-hour course will begin immediately following Part I. (4:00 - 6:00 pm)
