Private Practice is Like a Playground


I was at the playground with my kids when I noticed the correlation between the various play obstacles and how they relate to what private practitioners face.

As you build your private practice, you’ll undoubtedly face challenges but as you weave through and navigate those you’ll become better equipped and ready to take on new ones that come your way.

​In this episode, I am talking about the similarities between playgrounds and your private practice and sharing a few encouraging words for your journey.

What we discuss: 

  • What I saw at the playground that reminded me of private practitioners
  • How you can overcome obstacles you face
