Build and Grow a Successful Private Practice

Learn how to grow and market your private practice utilizing your strengths. You’re an excellent therapist and entrepreneur but desire a less generic and more focused approach for your business. You can apply and transfer your preferences, knowledge, skills and abilities to building your practice to the level your desire. This group will provide you with simple and effective strategies for enhancing and maintaining a thriving private practice.

The group will be led by Ann Starr MSW, SHRM-SCP. Ann is an accomplished executive coach and consultant with more than three decades of entrepreneurship, counseling, human resources, management consulting and leadership coaching experience. Ann’s career in Human Resources in both the private sector, with Motorola and Dell, as well as the public and non-profit sector, with Alliance Work Partners, has emphasized organizational transformation and leadership development. Ann has built and sold her own businesses. In each of these, sales and marketing was a major component that Ann was able to build successfully, resulting in significant sales with at least 100% Yr/Yr revenue growth. After all, nothing succeeds without marketing and sales!

The ten-week group will provide a structured, methodology that is specifically designed for practitioners who want to learn how to effectively develop a business model for a successful practice. Ann will foster a learning environment where you will have ample opportunities to try approaches that will assist you in building and growing a flourishing practice. Once you join the group, you will have access to an assessment (included in price) that will provide data about your priorities and preferences. The assessment will help you learn how to build your practice utilizing your strengths. In the weekly sessions you will discover how technology can assist you in your marketing efforts. The approach used will be from an abundance mindset, meaning Ann believes there are enough resources and success to share with others. Your successes will be celebrated, and we will all collaborate with one another so no one fails. In addition, we will explore the phases of marketing as they apply specifically to building and growing your practice, including how to:


  • Determine who to market your practice to (target market)
  • Design your messages that you will use to engage your target market
  • Explore and determine the best media you will use to reach your target market
