ABOUT THE COURSE
The Thriving Therapreneur Masterclass Series (TTMS) is a signature program that takes you from therapist to entrepreneur, or as we call it, Therapreneur. During the 6-week course, you will learn all the tools to launch and grow a thriving therapy business, without the time or price tag of an MBA program.
Countless therapists of color shy away from private practice/business ownership because in subtle (and explicit) ways they are discouraged from pursuing entrepreneurship. For most of us, our graduate programs did not prepare us to be successful business owners, and the thought of starting a business produces fear and anxiety that can leave us stuck!
Guess what? That was my story too!
I had convinced myself that entrepreneurship was not for me...even though my life goal was to own a private practice and despite double-majoring in Psychology and Business Administration in college. For a long time, I convinced myself that business ownership was not for me. After graduating from my doctoral program, I met some White colleagues who were at a similar career stage, and they owned their own businesses. In fact, they had started their private practices right after graduate school. I was blown away!
So I did what most mental health professionals do for a living, I asked questions! And, I had a LOT of questions. They answered my questions, and I took great notes! That was the moment my entrepreneurship spirit was revived! A few months later, in my role as co-chair of an early career psychologist group, I worked with a colleague to organize a workshop titled “How to Start Your Private Practice.” This was our most popular event, and it showed me how much people were craving this information (and still are). I discovered that entrepreneurship was not as mysterious as I had imagined...and that it was for me!
Fast forward 15 years, and believe it or not, not much has changed in how graduate schools prepare (or rather don't prepare) students to own and thrive in their business. No fear, I am here to guide you.
In this program, I have taken my 16+ experience in private practice and combined it with my experiences as a therapist, entrepreneur, innovator, and coach to give you the knowledge, confidence, and tools you need to thrive as a therapist-entrepreneur or as I like to call it, a Thriving Therapreneur!
In 2005, I launched my private practice. Sixteen years later, I have gone from running a private practice to operating a thriving enterprise. After taking course, you will
Have the confidence you need to operate a thriving business
Be able to speak confidently about your business
A transformational way to approach the finances of your business

We will help you launch your practice with the skills and knowledge that you need to thrive as a business owner!! And guess what...you don’t need to go back to school or spend $50,000 getting an MBA to do it!!
