This is episode 4 in my series of interviews with therapists who are all in private practice. 

The goal of this series is to share how they all built their practices. I’m asking them some big questions. From the decision to go into private practice, to how they market their services as well as obstacles they faced and things they wished they would have differently getting started. We are diving into the nitty gritty of starting a private practice. So if you’ve wondered about starting your own pp, then this series is for you. 

In this episode you are going to meet Sarah Rivera, LPC-S. She helps mental health professionals become confident business owners in private practice. Sarah offers training programs and coaching consults for mental health professionals either wanting to launch their private practice or who are struggling in their first year. You can get rid of the DIY mindset and receive guidance from Sarah who has been where you are. Sarah supports you during your private practice journey from launch to growth.

And in this episode Sarah shares why she decided to launch her private practice, how she grew her practice and the steps she took to create a group practice.
