From “Regular Clinicians” to Successful Private Practitioners: Meet Farwa, Teresa and Claudia

From "Regular Clinicians" to Successful Private Practitioners: Meet Farwa, Teresa and Claudia



Ever wished that you could hear directly from people who have gone from being regular SLPs or OTS to successful private practitioners after going through the Start Your Private Practice Program? 

In this episode of Private Practice Success Stories, I’m introducing you to three amazing Start Your Private Practice alums. They are Farwa Husain, Teresa Ochoa, and Claudia Davisson, and they all three came from different backgrounds. 

One was a school-based SLP or OT who couldn’t wait to get out. One took time off from the profession to raise her kids and then came back and started a private practice working just three days a week, and another started her private practice small and on the side of her job as a school SLP, but actually retired early and has grown her private practice with school contracts and also contractors. 

All three of these students had the same fears, doubts, and hesitations that you do, but they decided to go for it and join the Start Your Private Practice program to create a new future for themselves and their families


In Today’s Episode, We Discuss:


  • The stories of these three students
  • How private practice helps you create change
  • The freedom you can get from starting a private practice
  • How a private practice can help you take back control of your life and finances
  • The benefits of having school contracts
  • How having a private practice can impact the lives of your family
  • The hardest part of starting a private practice
  • The benefits of having a support system when starting out
  • Why you don’t need to worry about competition in your area
  • Their favorite parts of the program


I hope you found this episode helpful! I love how these students took a chance on themselves and have found so much success.  We don’t learn about starting a private practice in grad school, and I am so happy to offer this program so that you can get the help and support you need to start your private practice and take back control of your life and finances! 

Making the decision to start a private practice is a big decision – but it could also be the best decision. I can’t wait to help you start your private practice. To join the Start Your Private Practice Program, visit
