Who am I and why do I do this?
I’m Jill, the creator of the Private Practice Roadmap, a business born out of my own experiences and needs when I first ventured into this private practice journey. Initially, I started my own practice alongside my full-time job at a large healthcare system.
I grew tired of the restrictions on how, when, and where I could help people. Witnessing fellow humans being let down by the system left me disheartened. The burden of bureaucracy and politics weighed me down, and I found myself burning out rapidly. Maybe this sounds familiar to you?
Seeking a sense of balance, self-expression, and some extra income, I saw a side hustle as the perfect opportunity to test the waters. Not having the pressure to immediately secure a full case load and generate a full-time income gave me the freedom to experiment and shape my ideal practice.
However, let me be honest; the path was not exactly smooth. I made mistakes, encountered doubts and setbacks, and most of the time I felt like I was working in isolation, with little support and encouragement. It took trial and error to unlock the secrets of starting and maintaining a sustainable private practice because suddenly, I was not just an employed social worker. I was a business owner.
And being a business owner requires an entirely different skill set.
That’s why I created these programs – to provide you with the support, knowledge, guidance, and companionship you need to navigate this journey. Together, we reach your destination, armed with the tools and resources to build and sustain a successful private practice.
