Building a Values Centered Private Practice


Vanessa Flores Newton, LCSW-S


Taking the leap into private practice can be scary, but it’s also so rewarding! There is no one way to do it, and the truth is you don’t have to figure it out alone. It’s possible to have a thriving business while nourishing yourself in the process. 

Let’s come together to discuss how you know when it’s time to venture into private practice, what are the key deciding factors, any obstacles or roadblocks you may have to overcome and everything in between. 

My hope is to provide a safe space for fellow mental health professionals to ask questions and dream big. My wish for you is that you leave feeling confident enough to lean into the desires that are beckoning for your attention and know that you have a space and the community to ask for help along the way.

  • Learn the key main elements of building a private practice
  • Learn how to build a private practice that is sustainable and centered around your values
  • Explore any misconceptions you have about opening a private practice
  • Learn marketing strategies and identify your top 3 efforts
