Growing Her Practice with Innovative Social Communication Groups with Mary Hadley

Interested in offering innovative therapy services in your own private practice? 

You’re going to love this episode! I sat down with Mary Hadley, a Start and Grow program student, to discuss how she took the leap into private practice after facing a pivotal moment in her career. Now, she’s offering a very innovative therapy model for teens who need help with social communication.

Join us as Mary discusses how being in private practice has given her career fulfillment, flexibility for her family, and financial success as she’s earning significantly more than she was as a school SLP. 

Y’all, Mary was considering leaving the profession, but starting a private practice helped her turn things around. This is a can’t-miss episode! 

Mary is a highly experienced, certified speech-language pathologist and founder of Signpost Speech and Language Therapy. She specializes in evaluating and treating social communication and executive functioning issues for children, adolescents, and adults. 


In Today’s Episode, We Discuss:


  • When Mary realized she wanted to start a private practice
  • The immense need for speech private practices 
  • The earning potential as a private practice owner
  • Tips for overcoming imposter syndrome
  • How Mary’s private practice is set up to allow time for her family 
  • How her private practice is growing 
  • Mary’s plans for the future of her private practice
  • Tips for managing taxes and accounting for your private practice
  • Why you don’t need social media for your business if you don’t want it


I hope you loved this conversation with Mary! Her determination to find balance, stay true to herself, and build a thriving private practice is truly inspiring. 

She’s a shining example of someone who decided to take control of her destiny and accomplished something truly amazing! Her innovative approach to working with kids with social communication deficits in after-school programs is so, so cool.
