Start A Group Practice
Coaching Packages- 3 or 6 Month Programs
Congratulations on your decision to scale and jump into Group Practice!
Group Practice models are often the best way to increase both income and impact. This model brings your work and ability to help others to a much larger scale.
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. Here at Coastal Practice Consultants, we are focused on helping clinicians start, scale, or streamline their practices. We spent 18 years developing our practices from the ground up with little to no budget, support, or business background.
We have learned a lot in these 18 years through taking risks, exploring new ideas, connecting with specialists, studying business and marketing, tons of reading and research and probably most important, making lots of mistakes! Our goal is to teach clinicians the tips, tools, and strategies to get their dream practices up and running in 3 to 6 months through one of our custom coaching packages. We want to save you time and money so you can focus on what you do best – counseling!
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. Our Start A Group Practice coaching program is outlined below…
