Start Your Private Practice
Maybe you’re grinding it out at an agency, getting burned out, and feeling like there has to be a better option out there. Or maybe you’re looking to supplement your income with a private practice on the side. Either way, you might have a lot of questions and some feelings about putting yourself out there. Will you be able to get enough clients? Should you take insurance? Do you have enough knowledge and experience to go out on your own? Don’t worry, I’ve got you! Through my small group workshops, I can give you the tool kit to start building your practice. And if you need one-on-one attention, I’ve got you covered there too!
Boost Your Current Private Practice
If you’re a therapist in private practice and you are looking to find more clients, or maybe reach a new population, I can provide a top to bottom assessment and help you develop a customized marketing plan that suits your needs, your personality, and your practice. I can make marketing less intimidating, and help you share your unique talents and gifts. I’m also passionate about helping therapists improve their online presence, and speak to their clients through their websites. Let me help your ideal clients find you!
Hello! My name is Melissa Kelly and I’m a clinical social worker with years of experience running a full private practice, and over time I developed a passion for helping others do the same!
For me, private practice is about freedom. I worked for years in agency jobs and felt so trapped. Like many of us, I had no choice about what clients I would see, what type of treatment I would do, what my hours would be, and of course I was getting paid barely enough to scrape by! It took 7 years, but I finally had enough. Once I started in private practice, I’ve never regretted the decision to go out on my own for one second. It’s not that every day is a breeze, but for me, the feeling of having choices is the best feeling of all.
If my story speaks to you at all, I want you to know that things can get better, and I want to show you how!
