Consulting Services

Private practice is not an easy thing to manage. As therapists we are trained to be compassionate and caring. Our educational programs do not offer any real business components and many of us have no idea how to run a small business. We enter into private practice because we want to help people but quickly find that we are ill equipped to manage the business aspect of growing and developing the practice we want. Often times, therapist will give up on private practice because they cannot build the case load they want. Research shows that many therapists burn out of private practice due to the demanding nature of seeing a full caseload and trying to manage their practice. 

We firmly believe that running your practice should not be a barrier to offering your clients the care they need. We are here to help you develop the practice you want and navigate all the complexities of business management. One-on-one consulting is offered by appointment only. Additionally, we offer continuing education course to help your practice thrive and to connect you with other therapists struggling with the same issues.

A STUDY OF DIFFERENCES BETWEEN COMPLETERS AND NON-COMPLETERS OF FAMILY DRUG COURT PROGRAMS

An ex post facto quantitative quasi-experimental study was utilized to determine if the number of days in treatment, the number of drug screens and the number of court appearances impact the completion of family drug court programs throughout the Southwestern United States from October 1st, 2013 to September 30th, 2015. Groups of completers and non-completers are compared to the overall number of days in treatment, the number of drug screens, and the number of court appearances through the use of a multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA). Additionally, this study seeks to advance the use of social learning theory and its application to drug and alcohol prevention throughout the mental health field, and offers to aid in the advanced education for social workers, counselors, psychologists, and case managers who serve to further the field of family drug courts.
