Beating Burnout as a Bilingual SLP in Private Practice with Vanessa Alcala

Beating Burnout as a Bilingual SLP in Private Practice with Vanessa Alcala

Feeling burned out? Wondering if private practice is the answer for you? 

You’re going to love this episode of Private Practice Success Stories. I sat down with Vanessa Alcala, who decided to start her private practice after feeling the effects of burnout and having the desire to be her own boss. 

This is her second time on the show and she talks about her non-traditional journey to the field of SLP. Vanessa discusses how having her own private practice has helped her avoid burnout and how she has the freedom and flexibility to work with a variety of clients, ranging from bilingual children to older adults. 

She also talks about the importance of branding your business and the additional streams of revenue she’s added to her practice.

Vanessa Alcala, M.S. CCC-SLP, CDP is the owner and founder of TheraVolve Wellness Co., a bilingual Speech Therapy private practice serving adolescents and adults. In her professional career, she has provided skilled evaluation and intervention services to children, adult and geriatric populations in outpatient settings and skilled nursing.

Vanessa is also the co-creator of Sip & Social, which creates opportunities for connection and collaboration for female entrepreneurs in the healthcare industry by hosting social networking events throughout the Tampa Bay area.

It is her mission to provide a holistic approach to speech therapy by utilizing evidence-based and culturally sensitive practices with clients, parents, caregivers, and families. 

 

In Today’s Episode, We Discuss:

 

  • Vanessa’s atypical journey to private practice
  • The freedom you get when you have your own business
  • The mindset shift that increased her success
  • What a typical week looks like as a private practice owner
  • The work Vanessa is doing with Sip and Social
  • The power of building a referral network 
  • Why we don’t need to be competitive in private practice
  • Why you don’t have to wait years to start a private practice
  • The power of charging your worth
  • A mindset shift around earning money in our profession
  • Vanessa’s plans to hire help in her practice 

I hope you loved this episode with Vanessa! She is a perfect example of someone who reduced her burnout and found freedom and flexibility through private practice. She has created her ideal career and life for herself by being her own boss, and you can too.
