Should You Start Your Own Speech Therapy Private Practice? Find Out!

Many clinicians dream of starting their own private practice, but relatively few actually start one.

Find out if you’re ready to start your own occupational, physical or speech therapy private practice –

with this 10 question quiz.

​Why Are You Here?

There is something that is drawing you to private practice.

Maybe you’re longing to fulfill a lifelong dream.

Maybe you’re frustrated with your current position and are seeking more flexibility, clinical freedom or a higher income. 

Some people who stumble upon this page are actively seeking information about how to start a private practice NOW. They have thought about it and are ready to commit to treating private clients.

Others want more information and are more interested in testing the waters to see if private practice is the right next step… or not.

​The Quiz Will Help You Decide

When I was a teenager, I used to love taking quizzes in Seventeen and Cosmo Magazines. I loved to find out dumb stuff, like what my hair style said about my personality – or what my favorite book genre said about my future love life. These were dumb quizzes that didn’t help me make any decisions – they were fluffy and fun.

Now that I’m older, most decisions in life are much harder.

The decision of whether or not to start a private practice isn’t an easy one. This quiz is ONE way to figure out if it’s right right path for you.

The “Are You Ready to Start a Private Practice Quiz” is a bit more serious than one you’d take in  Cosmo, but it’s certainly not the end all, be all.

​The Decision is YOURS

I am not here to push you into private practice if you’re not ready – at all. 

My role is to provide information and education to help make whatever decision is right for you-

whether you decide to start a private practice NOW, later or never.

If you decide to proceed, The Independent Clinician website has a wealth of information to help you get started.

But first… take the quiz  🙂
