Private Practice Coaching

Private Practice Coaching

In late 2015, Dr. Amber Lyda was at a cross roads. She’d spent the last 10 years working at University counseling centers and, while it was a good job, she was ready for a change.

She had heard about online counseling years prior. At the time, she thought it would allow the counseling centers to stay in touch with clients. But now she thought it would allow her to do the work she loved while giving her the freedom to travel she desired.
By late 2015, she had done her preparations. She knew it was legal and ethical. She knew that efficacy rates were just as good as in office. And her search for top quality HIPAA compliant tools led her to iTherapy.

Finally, she did it. She made the decision and started her private practice. She started it as a part time job taking clients in the evening while still working at the university, but she looked forward to the day she could abandon her 5AM alarm and hour-long commute. Excitedly, she told her friends, co-workers and colleagues about her new practice. She’d even kept in touch with fellow students from grad school. All of these friends ended up becoming referral sources for her. She was doing it! She was building her private practice!

By summer of 2016, she had done it. She had built her new business up to where it could replace her day job. Amber resigned before the fall term and has been working her private practice since. (She’s also planning a trip abroad and she’ll be able to keep in contact with her clients while she’s out.)

Dr. Amber Lyda’s experience is not unique – we’ve helped a number of therapists start their practices. Some of them have been all online like Amber, some have been in-office, but most have been a hybrid combining the direct connection of an office with the occasional convenience of online.

No matter what kind of practice you want to start or grow, you too can be successful. In fact, it has never been easier to be successful.

In addition to working with clients, Dr. Amber Lyda has started coaching other therapists in starting their practices.

One of the new services we’ve made available to iTherapy subscribers is an invite to her exclusive online community and a discount on a coaching session with Dr. Amber Lyda. She will take all her knowledge & experience and apply it to helping you succeed.

That’s just one of the new services we’ve made available. (You can learn more about our new services at our Jumpstart Your Practice announcement post.) But you have to sign up before Sunday night to get 50% off your first 2 months and get access to the exclusive Q&As we’re hosting!
(Special Offer Ended 10/8/2017)

All this & more is available to you when you subscribe to iTherapy. What are you waiting for?
