Attracting Ideal Clients to Your Practice with Marcia Church

Attracting Ideal Clients to Your Practice with Marcia Church

Many SLPs and OTs dream of having the freedom to work with their ideal clients AND have plenty of time for family and self-care. I’m here to tell you that both are possible! And starting or growing a private practice is the perfect way to do it. Why? You get to call all of the shots and create a practice that works for your life with the clients that you want to treat!

In this episode of Private Practice Success Stories, I sat down with one of my Grow Your Private Practice students, Marcia Church, to talk about her story and how she grew her private practice so that she could work with her ideal clients, earn the income she desires, AND have a schedule that works for her family.  

Marcia Church, M.A., CCC-SLP is a Texas Licensed, ASHA certified Speech Pathologist of over 14 years and the owner of Pediatric Speech Stars, a boutique private practice in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. She specializes in the birth-5 population both virtually and in-home. In addition, Marcia also offers flexible 1:1 parent and SLP virtual coaching options. 


In Today’s Episode, We Discuss:


  • Why Marica decided to start her private practice
  • How Marcia got her first clients
  • Parent coaching services
  • Becoming an insurance provider
  • Making your first hire
  • Setting boundaries and saying no
  • Finding your ideal clients
  • Investing in your business


I love how passionate Marcia is about building a private practice that allows her to serve others while serving her family too. She’s the perfect example of someone who built their private practice with boundaries in mind. She believes in balance over burnout and she has mechanisms in place to protect herself as her practice grows.
