Case Study: Building a Six-Figure Private Practice in Less Than 2 Years with Samantha Asher

six-figure private practice

Have you ever dreamed of starting a private practice that brought in six figures? 

When many people think of starting their own private practice, they think of it as a side income, but it doesn’t have to be. You can grow it as much or as little as you want. 

In this episode of Private Practice Success Stories, I sat down with one of my Start Your Private Practice students, Samantha Asher, to talk about how she grew her private practice to six figures while only working 3 days a week. She is able to support her family financially with her private practice and also be there for her kids every day. 

Samantha Asher, MA, CCC-SLP is a speech-language pathologist and the CEO of Green Light Speech and Language Services, LLC. Green Light specializes in providing effective feeding, language, and speech therapy that children genuinely enjoy. Samantha built Green Light on the principles of responsive feeding and parent-child-therapist collaboration. Samantha also develops and shares content about responsive feeding and therapy strategies through her Instagram page @greenlightspeechtherapy. 

Outside of the speech world, Samantha is a loving, happy wife and mother. She has two young children and a large rescue pup.


In Today’s Episode, We Discuss:


  • The tremendous need for private practices
  • Why it’s completely normal to be nervous
  • The benefits of having a community of people on the same journey
  • How Samantha managed her private practice while moving to a new state
  • How to know it’s time to take your private practice full-time
  • Why it’s okay to ask for reviews
  • Hiring team members
  • Samantha’s plans for her private practice moving forward


We all want the time to spend with our families while still providing for them. Starting your private practice is the first step to creating the life you want. It is totally possible to make a full-time income while only working part-time hours, and Samantha is proof of that. 

She was able to build a six-figure private practice while only working three days a week and taking her daughter to ballet class. The possibilities really are endless. 

If you are inspired by Samantha’s story, the programs she did were the Start Your Private Practice program and the Grow Your Private Practice program. To learn more about how we support SLPs and OTs just like Samantha, visit to learn more about our free and paid programs.
