Private Psychotherapy Practice closed & eBook Published on Amazon!

(post edited 2/4/23)

I wish to extend my gratitude to everyone who has supported my consulting practice and blog these past few years. You were my inspiration for developing my consulting business.

Housekeeping: If you are a prior therapy client needing to reach me, Contact Bonnie here.

Along the path of my consulting practice, I’ve met some incredibly amazing clinicians, some of whom I am honored to call friends. Thank you all for sharing your unique wisdom with me so that I could learn, and in turn, pay it forward!

My private practice and consulting businesses have yielded some of the most fulfilling work experiences in all of my years as a social worker. I loved my therapist chair from beginning to end. I continue to enjoy this mentor chair from which I type this moment.

As 2022 comes to a close, so goes my private practice business. And, I’ve cut my consulting business back to offering brief consultations only.

Life brings changes in waves of turbulence. The most recent wave in my life requires my full attention. In order to fly through it without getting too banged up in the roughness of it, earlier this year I made the difficult decision to close my practice and consulting businesses (reopened in February for limited services).

eBook now on Amazon!

The private practice start-up guide that many clinicians inspired and have come to know me for is now available exclusively on Amazon! It’s FREE for everyone through Sunday, February 5th, 2023. It’ll continue to be FREE to borrow in the Amazon Kindle Unlimited Subscription program through April 30th, 2023.

After February 5th, 2023, this amazing resource (can’t believe I ate wrote the whole thing), will be priced competitively.

It’s not about the money, after all. However, unlike popular ideas about the profession, I came to social work with expectations to earn a decent income. My goals were achievable, but it wasn’t always easy. In fact, some settings I worked in became downright miserable.

More about that someday… As a writer and consultant? I don’t have monetary goals. It’s more about the journey (but a little to cover the cost of websites and clinical memberships is always a good thing).

Are you wondering how my book is being received? I was too, so I checked all day long for six days straight after publication (nope, not obsessed with stats, sheesh).

After achieving #1 Best Sellers Ranking in Private Practice Management and #1 in Psychology Reference on Day 2 of publication, it remained there for days on end! The followiing is from February 4th, 2023. My book has achieved its own life force!

For Now – What’s Next?

For Me (but you are as important!):

I write. I provide brief consulting services. I take care of my family. I have a new role in my life, about which there are no words I can write publically at the moment. Regarding the personal things I can write about (and this may be unethical as a blogger, but, hey, you can skip it, right?), I also write occasionally over on my personal blog Healing through Writing & Creativity. That’s where my “writing” gig began in 2017. I practiced on readers over there. It’s been wonderful.

For You:

Most importantly: Keep your head above water. Float when you need to.

Keep up your good work providing services to those who need them!

For Me and You:

Blah, Blah, Blah (as my mother would say)

It has been a wonderful experience running my private practice since the fall of 2014 and then adding the consulting aspect as my practice grew. If you’d told me at the beginning that others would seek out my help because of my success, I wouldn’t have believed you. In case you didn’t know, it started out as an experiment: Can I do this thing called private practice?

That just goes to show how ya never know what’s going to happen when you embark on a new adventure.

Keep up the good work, everyone, and fly above the clouds every chance you get!

Ya never know what amazing adventures life will offer you, but in my experience, they don’t always present as a shiny attractive “yeehaw let’s do this” type of thing. Often they begin as an overwhelming wave of not-so-fun stuff.

Wishing you all health, peace, and grand adventure in 2023.
