Have you been thinking about starting a private practice so that you can provide more personalized care for your ideal clients and have more work-life balance? You’re going to love this episode of Private Practice Success Stories!
I sat down with Lexey Pruitt, a Start and Grow Your Private Practice student who started her private practice on the side when living in St. Louis and then moved to Houston and has been building it from there.
In this episode, she talks about establishing new connections and marketing herself in a new city, how she receives a lot of referrals through a directory associated with a certification program, and the benefits of being an in-home mobile therapist, which often allows for more personalized care and time for parent coaching.
Lexey Pruitt is a certified speech language pathologist, founder of Leading Little Language, LLC, and an NLA-trained clinician. Lexey specializes in early language development and Gestalt Language Processing.
After graduating from Southern Illinois University Carbondale, Lexey worked in the school system in southern Illinois, where she found her love for early language and working with non-speaking and Autistic children.
She initially opened her private practice as a part-time practice by driving to clients’ homes and daycares in St. Louis, MO, and the southern Illinois area, after school hours and on summer breaks. Following a move to Houston, TX, Lexey reopened her business as a full-time venture and enjoyed its growth over the last year!
In Today’s Episode, We Discuss:
- The moment Lexey knew she wanted to pursue private practice
- What it’s like to start a private practice in a new area
- The marketing activities Lexey did to grow her practice
- The types of clients that Lexey gets to work with in her private practice
- How Lexey became trained in Gestalt language processing
- How having a private practice enabled Lexey to provide coaching to parents
- Lexey’s goals for growth in the next 6-12 months in her business
- How you can get out of the day-to-day activities by hiring help
- How life-changing the income from your private practice can be
I hope you loved this conversation with Lexey! Her story is so inspiring. She is a perfect example of someone who had a goal and made it happen.
