A short discussion of my individual approach that has lead to 19 years of successful private practice. Sharing the joys and pitfalls of managing the practice of self-care and the parameters for clients in an outpatient setting in a rural area. Navigating the scope of practice, social media policy and the client-therapist relationship and setting expectations for availability that protect the therapist from burn-out and the clients from unreasonable expectations. Discussing models for practice paperwork.


Learning Objectives:

1. Creating an individual model of quality care.

2. Understanding how a non-traditional approach to business that puts individuals ’care first leads to a successful practice.

3.Leaarning to manage and address the perils of life as an independent practitioner
