As therapists and counselors, we didn’t learn about business planning in graduate school.

A business plan can be used as a guiding post to:
– Start a Private Practice
– Build a Six-Figure Private Practice
– Leverage your Private Practice into your dream

During this workshop, you will develop and create a business plan for your private practice that will help you make decisions. Should you hire a business coach? Should you market on Facebook? Should you narrow your niche? A solid business plan will help you to gain clarity about the next steps you need to take in order to build, expand or capitalize on your practice.

You will learn how to:
– Create a mission statement and vision
– Identify the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of your business
– Develop long-term and short-term SMART goals
– Establish income goals and how to achieve them

This workshop will be offered at my office in Pembroke Pines and will include snacks and handout materials.

Three CEU hours will be provided by Clinical Therapy Associates

Workshop will be held September 22nd, from 10am-1pm.  Location is 9000 Sheridan St, Pembroke Pines, FL 33024.  

Space is limited to 5 participants so be sure to register early!

Price: $ 97.00
You will be automatically directed to PayPal to make your payment after filling out this form.


Praise from previous workshops!

“Whether you are looking to expand into private practice, or a  seasoned private practitioner, I highly recommend taking Amanda’s Business Planning Workshop.  Amanda shares how she transitioned from agency work and created a thriving private practice.  This workshop was informative and created a space for me to reflect on my short and long term private practice goals.”

“Amanda is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to building a successful and thriving private practice.  With her guidance and support I was able to develop a realistic business plan and was able to identify the steps I need to take to have a successful practice.  Amanda is a great speaker, not only because of her knowledge base but also because of her patience and hands on approach to teaching what she practices daily.”

Stephanie Savo LMHC Private Practice Pembroke Pines


“The business plan workshop was very helpful. Lots of information presented in a relaxed comfortable and fun setting. Amanda has great energy and was very relatable and inclusive. Being a life coach I was concerned that the information wouldn’t be relevant but it all was not only relevant but has been instrumental in my business plan. Looking forward to the social media workshop!”
