Welcome to the Private Practice Resources Hub
Welcome to the Practice of the Practice resource hub. I’m Joe, and that’s me with my family. They’re the reason I do EVERYTHING I do! Just like you, work isn’t the only reason I work. I want you to be able to have a great life with friends and family. I want you to have influence and income. I also want you to grow much faster with my help, than if you did it alone. Welcome!
I only recommended resources that I use and like. If you don’t like them, tell me, I want to know.
A few years ago, I really started intentionally growing my business and marketing skills. Since then:
- My private practice income has gone up 847% (see the monthly income reports for specific details)
- I’ve brought on 5+ counselors into my Traverse City counseling private practice.
- I’m now teaching others how to start a private practice and how to become a consultant.
- I have tons of fun doing all this!
We’re building a community of practitioners that want to grow, I’m glad you are here!

- All forms are for immediate download and in .doc format so you can change them.
- Intake, progress notes, doctor update form, receipts, and more!
- Contractor forms for clinicians and non-clinicians so you can add 1099s to your practice and start increasing your private practice income.

I really like the designers MOO, they have quality card stock which makes the card feel more professional.
Building a Website
Buying a domain: Places to buy website domains for around $10. Name Cheap (What I use) GoDaddy (what other folks use, and good). Each one offers deals, sign up for their mailing lists and they often offer a deal. When you do decide to buy, it’d be awesome if you went through my affiliate link.
Hosting: The website hosting that I use, it’s around $7 per month and is very intuitive. I have used Blue Host and I absolutely love it. It integrates so easily with WordPress, it’s secure, and it is cheap.
Design The FREE website design/publishing I use, thousands of themes and styles. Word Press I use code to put valuable products on my counseling private practice website. It makes it look a little bit better.
