(Or, in other words: Sometimes I want to set my new private practice on fire.)
For so many reasons, it is challenging to launch a private practice. Most of us get into this field to be people supporters, and suddenly with the start of a practice, we are expected to be: shrewd marketers, knowledgeable accountants, legal eagles, social media gurus, engaging bloggers, interior decorators, billing geniuses, artwork collectors, and savvy connectors.
Oh, and we’re supposed to do great clinical work. And take care of ourselves. And maintain our relationships. And have an outside life. With all of that weighing on us, it is easy to get lost in the haze and get disconnected from our entrepreneurial resilience. Let’s take a lunch to talk about the hard stuff and ways that we can get through it intact and in joy. (Or at least in hope.)

Lauren Cohen, LCSW is the owner and therapist at Hope and Humor Therapy, LLC. She has been a licensed social worker since 2008 and a private practice clinician since February of 2016. When Lauren launched her practice, she thought that she knew what she was in for. She had worked in the foster care system, in hospitals, at statewide programs, at community agencies. Lauren thought that private practice would be a fluffy change of pace. HA! Boy was she wrong! Lauren’s experience led her to create this workshop in order to break the mystery and shame that can come with practice building and to shed some light on the reality of owning a business with all of its ebbs and flows.
