The Reviews Are In

“Building Your Ideal Private Practice should be the bible of any clinician” Mila Tecala, Social Worker of the Year, NASW

“I love this book! It is at once both practical and inspiring.” Nancy Napier, author of Recreating Your Self

“This book is an outstanding selection of principles and ideas for every health care practice owner, not only for a therapist.Invest the time it takes you to read this book back into your daily practice. If you get through this book in fifteen hours, and if you use just three ideas out of hundreds, and if each one idea saves you just 1/100th of your daily working time and effort–that will be a savings of 60 hours per year, or a net annual profit on time invested of 300%. Do you know of any other investment that nets you 300% annually? Dr. Yuval Lirov, author of Medical Billing Networks and Processes.
