Sue Clifford, PhD, LPC-S and Suzanne Davis-Thomas, MA, LPC-S, NCC took the leap into the private practice world. They discovered the “ins & outs” of private practice on their own through costly and time-consuming trial and error. There was nobody to turn to for “how-to” guidance and many discouraged them from trying.

NO MORE! They are passing along their helpful and successful private practice knowledge to other counseling professionals. Learn what to do and what NOT to do.

Learn SPECIFIC how-to info, get a list of resources, and customizable sample forms. Take tests to see if private practice matches your goals and lifestyle. A step-by-step Workbook that takes you through the exciting world of starting a practice is included with the course.
