One thing we do know for sure, the pandemic is not going to be going away anytime soon. Since it’s not leaving, it the use of telehealth psychotherapy for mental health professionals is here for at least a bit longer. As a result, you may be deciding whether to give up, renew your lease, or just work from your home. Whatever your decision, you will want to create a personal touch to your online office. In other words, what is the feel you want your clients to have via this online space with you?
I recall hearing over and over again during my graduate school studies that when it came to therapy, self-disclosure was not allowed. There was definitely no place in therapy for anything other than the patient and their experience.
I remember shortly before I decided to go into private practice full-time. I was lead to take a paid course on how I could grow my business. My coach asked us the question, “if someone attempted to find you on Google what keywords would they use to search for you.” Instantly I thought that at a minimum, my friends and loved ones would include “social worker” in their search. I was really surprised at how many random responses I received. For a moment I felt a bit insignificant. I thought “wow, nobody knows what I’m doing and if my friends don’t know what I’m doing, how in the world will anyone else?.”

- What Is Required To Call Myself A Christian Counselor
“What is required to call myself a Christian counselor?” is one of the most common questions I hear as a consultant. People often wonder if they need a special certification or training to be labeled a “Christian counselor”. Or, therapists wonder if their knowledge of Christianity and the Bible are strong enough to give themselves this title. I am here to say there is no specific training that I have heard of that is required to call yourself a “Christian Counselor”. But, I do think there are some clinical and ethical considerations that one must examine before giving themselves this title.
- Systems to Create for Your Group Practice
Before you even hire someone for your group practice, you want to make sure that you have all your systems and processes in place. Why do I have to be so organized, you might ask? Because it will make your life 100 times easier after you hire your first clinician. Having to train someone on a system you haven’t yet created, or doing the training while you’re creating the system, is a recipe for feeling overwhelmed and chaotic.
