  • Zynnyme¬†Business School Bootcamp
    The Business School Bootcamp is the very first online course I purchased and it literally changed my life. The resources and the community inside Bootcamp last far beyond the course and although it is only open for enrollment once a year, Kelly and Miranda also have many free resources for marketing your private practice that are available year round.

    Samara Stone provides coaching for therapists and counselors who prefer to focus on building an insurance based practice. She has a very successful group practice and provides invaluable tips for how to create a profitable practice that actually incorporates insurance billing.

    • Increase your personal income and say NO to burnout and overwhelm
    • Create a steady stream of clients
    • How and where to spend your time and energy to get the best results for your business
    • Create the service delivery and income streams that are right for you
    • Create a clear path for your lifestyle dream
    • Charge what you are worth and get it!

Continuing Education Resources

  • How to Take a Load Off Your Informed Consent Process
    (1 CE hour)
    A one hour recorded webinar with myself and Roy Huggins, LPC NCC where we talk about everything informed consent- what to include, how to talk with clients and how to spend less time on the paperwork part of it. 

EHR (Electronic Health Record) Resources

  • Tame Your Practice
    Rob Reinhardt over at Tame Your Practice has complete EHR reviews on basically every EHR in existence! He also offers private consultations (at a very reasonable price) in case you are having difficulty deciding which EHR is the best for you.

  • Review of Notes and Electronic Health Records for Therapists
    This is a blog post I wrote that goes in depth specifically about notes and some EHRs. My review is not nearly as complete as the reviews Rob provides but I provide my own take. 

HIPAA Resources

    The team at Person-Centered Tech offers a wealth of information related to all things technology and HIPAA. There are product reviews, CE trainings and plenty of free articles on everything from texting securely with clients to how to evaluate the technology risk in your practice.
