1. I feel overwhelmed by all the information online about how to get clients and build or enhance a private pay therapy practice.  How do I know where to focus?

 

Great question.  As a former college professor, Dr. Chloe prides herself on being able to outline a comprehensive course that includes all of the relevant components needed to ensure a complete package; while also making sure the material is entertaining and engaging.  She also understands the importance of offering homework to give students the opportunity to apply what they’re learning, and make sure they aren’t missing or forgetting important pieces of the material that has been taught.  As a successful therapist, a successful business person, and a doctoral level psychologist with credible experience in academia, you can trust Dr. Chloe to provide you with a helpful, informative, challenging-yet-entertaining course where you can just “follow the steps” and know that you’ll be getting the information you need to start or enhance your private pay therapy practice.

 

2. I’m still a student.  Is it too early for me to watch the videos in the Profitable Practices shop?

 

Congratulations on being here and thinking about private practice even while you’re still in school!  That’s when Dr. Chloe started thinking about her private pay therapy practice, too.  One of the biggest fears that students and new graduates have is how to get private pay therapy clients. The good news is that there are definitely things you can do NOW to start preparing.  You can design your ads, website, business cards, etc NOW (you can always change them later- still just a good idea to start some rough drafts!); plus you can start making sure your LinkedIn contacts are constantly updated.  You can also start social media accounts and a monthly newsletter so that you’ll have a ready-made following (even if it’s small, it’s better than nothing!) for when you start your practice.  Dr. Chloe kept a file of ideas for her practice during graduate school so that she had a running start when the time came to launch her practice. Watching her videos on how to start or enhance a private therapy practice is a GREAT way to get yourself pointed in the right direction!

 

3.  Will Dr. Chloe do a 1-hour online video or even live in-person Q/A for my school, professional association, group of colleagues, etc?

 

Yes, possibly!  Dr. Chloe is always glad to meet motivated, interested, intelligent therapists who are interested in private practice success.  Complete the application form here to get started!

 

4. I’m on a budget, but I really want to get more private pay therapy clients.  How do I make this affordable?

 

If you were to learn how to get private pay therapy clients– or even learn something that helped you to get just ONE private pay therapy client– from the skills, ideas, and encouragement in these videos, you would EASILY recoup your investment.  The real question is, can you afford NOT to give yourself the advantages of Profitable Practices?  The good news is that you can get all 10 video modules for just $279, or four monthly payments of only $74!  Moreover, the fee is considered a business expense by the IRS, so you don’t even have to pay taxes on this money!  Considering that most people pay 33% in taxes, this means that your effective out of pocket cost would be significantly LESS than $200. To delve deeper into the question of whether to invest in yourself and your practice, please watch the video on this page titled “Should I Spend the Money?”

5. I would like to refer some friends who want private pay therapy clients.  Can I get a commission for referring them?

 

Yes!  You can register for an affiliate account and start earning extra income today.

 

6. Does Dr. Chloe offer private tutoring?

 

Yes.  The fee for private tutoring is $1k per 60 minutes.  During this time, you’re free to ask about anything you want, including questions about exactly who she uses for certain services such as web design, advertising, billing, legal advice, employee recruiting, etc.  You’re also free to ask her to role-play with you exactly how she manages free 15-minute calls and segues them into paid bookings if the client seems like a good fit for her private pay therapy practice; personally review your advertising profile or website; brainstorm ideas on how you personally could leverage your local network for success, get featured in the media, or whatever else you wish to discuss!  Please note that you must apply for private tutoring.  To apply, please click here.   Don’t worry if the fee for private tutoring is unaffordable, since you can get access to Dr. Chloe’s entire video course with optional homework worksheets to help you stay on track, the alumni listserv where she often answers questions for free, and plenty of other goodies for a much lower fee.  Private tutoring is available, but it is not necessary– we encourage you to try the more affordable video course with alumni listserv access first, but of course the choice is yours!
