    Failure isn't Final: Failure is a Data Point

    Failure isn't Final: Failure is a Data Point

    Failure Isn't Final. Failure is a data point.
    During this episode of the All Things Private Practice Podcast, I talk with Leah Riddell, the owner of Origins Counseling & Wellness.
    Here are some key takeaways from this episode:
    1. Burnout and Monotony in Private Practice:
    If you are a therapist or mental health professional, you may be experiencing burnout or finding yourself stuck in the monotony of clinical hours. This episode addresses the need for diversifying professional activities to maintain excitement and passion in mental health professionals' careers. Leah's approach to expanding income and professional development through a group practice offers viable solutions for therapists seeking to revitalize their practice and prevent burnout.
    2. Challenges in Serving Marginalized Communities:
    Therapists who work in areas with limited representation and support often struggle to provide adequate services to marginalized communities, such as the LGBTQIA+ and Neurodivergent populations. Leah's expertise and experiences in creating a practice that specifically caters to these groups provide valuable insights and strategies for other mental health professionals who aim to better serve and support such communities within their own practices.
    3. Overcoming Personal and Professional Setbacks:
    Many listeners may relate to the fear of failure and challenges associated with stepping out of their comfort zones in both personal and professional landscapes. This episode dives into conversations about resilience, the transient nature of struggles, and viewing failure as a data point rather than a devastating event.
    About Leah:
    Leah is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor, Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist, a group practice owner, entrepreneur, coach, CE provider, educator, retreat host, speaker, and empowerment generator.  
    Leah proudly co-owns the Therapist Learning Center, LLC, a comprehensive practice support company. Offering services from virtual assistants and continuing education to retreats and coaching, the center is dedicated to empowering clinicians to elevate their businesses, revolutionize their practices, and achieve enduring success in the field.
    Whether she's sharing her knowledge in a classroom, on a stage via voice, song, interpretive dance, or coaching a client one-on-one, Leah's mission is to generate empowerment and inspire others around her.
    In her spare time, you'll find Leah immersing herself in the world of video games, where she continues to master the art of the "pew-pew."

    From Burnout to Breakthrough: Selling A Group Practice Successfully

    From Burnout to Breakthrough: Selling A Group Practice Successfully

    🧵Are you a group practice owner feeling overwhelmed and considering an exit plan? Dive into our latest episode where Gabrielle Juliano-Villani talks about the emotional roller coaster of selling her practice.
    This episode isn't just about the when and the how of selling a group practice—it's also a tale of personal evolution, burnout prevention, and understanding that your business is an asset.
    Key Themes:
    1. Considering Selling Due to Burnout: Many private practice owners may be feeling overwhelmed by the responsibilities and stress associated with running their practice, which can lead to burnout. This episode directly addresses the emotional journey and practical considerations of selling a group practice, as Gabrielle Juliano-Villani shares her personal experience of deciding to sell due to burnout, providing guidance and reassurance to listeners who may be contemplating a similar decision.
    2. Fear of Financial and Legal Complexities: The prospect of selling a practice introduces a range of financial and legal challenges, and many practitioners may feel ill-equipped to navigate these waters. This episode alleviates these concerns by discussing the importance of having financial documentation in order, considering capital gains taxes, and understanding the value of proper bookkeeping. Patrick and Gabrielle underscore the significance of being strategic and well-informed before proceeding with a sale.
    3. Uncertainty About Future Career Path and Income Streams: Therapists often find themselves locked into the mindset of traditional one-on-one therapy sessions as their sole source of revenue and may struggle to envision alternative career paths or income streams. The discussion between Patrick and Gabrielle illuminates the vast potential of leveraging therapists' transferable skills in different ways. Try to explore diverse revenue streams, which can help prevent staying in unfulfilling situations and prepare for eventual transitions out of private practice.

    Profit First For Therapists: Making Money Work

    In this episode, Patrick is joined by special guest Julie Herres, CEO of GreenOak Accounting, specifically designed for therapists and counselors in private practice. Some Key Takeaways:
    1. Financial Insecurity in Private Practice: Many therapists and counselors struggle with feeling guilty about making money in the mental health field, which can lead to undercharging for services and not paying themselves a fair wage. This episode addresses the importance of therapists being able to make a good living and feel comfortable with their finances, offering practical tips and advice on aligning business revenue with personal financial needs.
    2. Lack of Financial Knowledge: Private practice owners may feel overwhelmed by the complexities of managing their finances, including filing taxes and making important financial decisions for their practice. The podcast episode discusses the significance of working with a professional team, such as a tax professional, to prevent costly mistakes and ensure the sustainability of the business.
    3. Pricing and Fee Setting Challenges: Many practice owners may struggle with determining their rates and setting fees for services due to comparing themselves to others or feeling pressured to conform to standard market rates. This episode advocates for setting rates based on individual financial needs and lifestyle goals, emphasizing the importance of staying true to oneself and making business decisions that align with personal goals.
