Kimberly Hession, LCSWR and Jennifer Flanagan, LCSWR P.C.
aka “Kim & Jen”.
That’s how most people know us. Clinical Social Workers, therapists, coaches, consultants, friends, moms, wives, etc… We are the same as many of you. Busy moms scrambling to manage family, friends, work, and a little self care tossed in.
If you are reading this then perhaps you were curious about the people behind Coastal Practice Consultants. We won’t bore you with our resumes. If you want to know about our credentials, training or experience, please visit us at our private practice website www.greatsouthbaytherapy.com or take a peek at our Psychology Today profiles.
What we HOPE you learn about us is that we are passionate about helping clinicians build their best practices. We want you to have all the joy and success we have enjoyed but skipping all the mistakes and wasted time. We did the research, we read the books, we met with the experts, we did the “trial and error” so you don’t have to!
Our Mission at Coastal Practice Consultants is derived from 3 simple values.
“In vain have you acquired knowledge if you have not imparted it to others.” –Deuteronomy Rabbah
Once you learn something amazing, you naturally want to share it with others. It took us 15 years to get to where we are now – and we are still learning. We had little to no help with the business and management part of a clinical practice. Like most clinicians, we learned along the way and our practices have been thriving since 2002.
You can certainly try the DIY method but we don’t recommend it. We believe your time is better spent treating clients and learning new clinical interventions. We are here to get you through the business, management, and marketing strategies. You can choose from individual and/or group consulting programs to suit your needs.
Not sure if this is what you need? Contact us for a free 20min free phone consult to review your goals and determine if our services will support them.
“We achieve more when we chase the dream instead of the competition” ~Simon Sinek
We chose this profession to be agents of change and help those in need. If we help clinicians build amazing practices- they reach more clients!
According to the United States Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics, virtually all the mental health professional fields have a positive job outlook in the upcoming decade.
We believe in collaboration – not competition. There is no shortage of clients, in fact we believe there is a shortage of therapists!
If you are even considering starting a practice – now is the time!
“You can’t light up the world if you can’t pay your light bill” ~unknown
We strongly and passionately believe that mental health clinicians do some of the most important work there is – and yet our value is often clouded by poor compensation.
We believe clinicians deserve a profitable practice that allows them to lead the lifestyles they dream of. Nothing makes us our heads spin like a clinician who doesn’t believe they are valuable enough to make a good living. Ughhhhh! We want to help you explore your money mindset obstacles and start making the salary you deserve.
Although mental health professionals are often expanding their clinical knowledge and skills, we have learned over the years that most clinicians lack business, finance, or marketing skills. This has now become the foundation of our consulting work.
We offer several different consulting/coaching programs tailored to meet the individual needs of the clinicians we work with. A few options are outlined on our Practice Building page.
