3 Online Resources for Therapists in Private Practice

by Kimberly on May 18, 2010 · 0 comments

Being in private practice can be lonely work. There’s no water cooler office chat, no people around to bounce ideas off of, and no one to help you process through an experience.

And to make matters worse, for many therapists (music therapists and otherwise), we’re also trying to navigate the ins and outs of running a business…which wasn’t taught to us in school!

You’ve stumbled on a resource here with this blog. One of my goals and visions for the Music Therapy Maven is to provide you with information and helpful tips about starting, running, and marketing your own private practice.

But I’m also not the only one out there! There are several others (some music therapists, some other therapists) who are also in the business of helping you achieve success in your private practice.

In today’s post, I wanted to share with you 3 other websites that provide information and support for therapists in private practice.

NOTE: This is the first time I’ve shared resources without trying them myself. But these are sites and resources recommended to me by people I trust. However, these are not personal recommendations and endorsements, but simply sharing information you may or may not find useful. Consider yourself warned:D

  1. Business Success for Therapists. Laura Dessauer’s mission is to “provide support, resources, and systems to help therapists create a business they love, while attracting more clients, more money, and more time.” She does this through teleconferences, coaching, and home study services.
  2. Smart Business Ideas for Helping Professionals. Susan’s blog (found at provides useful information, tips, and ideas about small business development, online healthcare, and social media marketing. Plus, for a fee, you can have a personal coaching session with her.
  3. Build a Private Practice. Music therapist Kathy Lindberg wrote a “how-to” ebook on building your own creative arts therapy practice. She’s done it, lived it, and is sharing her information and knowledge with you.

I personally plan to explore all three of these sites and products in the near future. If you have any additional resources to share that you’ve found helpful, please leave a comment below!
