Learn the Right Way to Build, Grow & Sustain a Private Practice

As Mental Health professionals, we often spend too little time attending to the business aspects of our practices. For some of us, it may not be in our nature to dwell on income and profitability; others may feel uncomfortable with the idea of marketing and self-promotion.

Even so, we can all agree that having a successful practice calls for a proper balance among business-building, time management, and client therapy. That balance can be achieved with a well-orchestrated strategy and a little courage.

On Friday, November 6th you have an opportunity to do just that. Under the expert coaching of Miranda Palmer and Kelly Higdon, of ZynnyMe Inc., you will be in the best of professional hands to help you prepare for 2016 with a positive outlook for yourself, your business, and your effectiveness at communicating your unique skills to potential clients.

Kelly and Miranda will lead beginning and advanced private practitioners through a series of trainings, exercises, and experiences designed to give you greater ease, effectiveness, and joy in operating your private professional practice. 

Earn 6 CEUs! This workshop will qualify for six CEUs. We will interweave ethics, legality and client centered practice throughout the material. 

Location: The Monrovian Restaurant

The Monrovian Restaurant's banquet room provides a comfortable and spacious facility for the workshop, while their kitchen will put out wonderful breakfast and lunch buffets for our sustenance.
