Transitioning from Home Health to Private Practice with Alex Wynter

Transitioning from Home Health to Private Practice with Alex Wynter

Thinking of transitioning from home health to private practice? 

You’re going to love this episode of Private Practice Success Stories! I sat down with one of my Start program students, Alex Wynter. She’s a speech-language pathologist with a private practice in Philadelphia, PA called the Wynter Wellness Group. She decided to start her private practice while working in home health. Alex loved the work she was doing in her community but wanted more freedom to do things on her own terms. 

In this episode, she talks about the obstacles she faced working in corporate healthcare and how having her own practice has led to more freedom and fulfillment. 

Alex also discusses the importance of non-clinical skills when it comes to multiple streams of income and how she also offers public speaking engagements, mentorship, and caregiver coaching.

Alexandria has been treating the adult and senior population for 10 years, working for some of the top healthcare systems in Philadelphia including Penn Medicine at Home & Hospice Services with the Penn Medicine hospital network and Mercy Home Health with Nazareth Hospital.

After her beginnings in home health 6 years ago, she realized the unique challenges and services needed by those living with chronic conditions. Often seen as “frequent flyers” by their healthcare team, with their concerns frequently swept under the rug as being “the usual complaints” she continued to see this population underserved. It’s the exact reason she decided to work with adults & seniors with chronic conditions.  

Due to her special abilities to build authentic relationships with her patients and communicate with their healthcare team (including physicians, specialists, and other therapists), she has been able to help her patients see significant gains, not only with their speech therapy goals but with their overall health as well.

 

In Today’s Episode, We Discuss:

 

  • The seeds you can plant now that can bloom into a successful private practice 
  • A peek into what it’s like owning an adult-focused private practice
  • One simple question you can ask your clients that will help your private practice grow exponentially 
  • The best way to get the support and encouragement you need when you start your private practice journey
  • The power you have to choose your own adventure as a private practice owner
  • A realistic look at what it’s like when you decide to leave your job and go all in on your private practice 
  • The one thing that could stop you from fulfillment as an SLP or OT
  • The key thing you have to remember when figuring out billing and insurance

 

I hope you enjoyed hearing from Alex and how she took the initiative to start her own practice. She is a perfect example of someone who expanded her practice through diversifying her income streams and focusing on non-clinical skills in addition to clinical care.
