I was so honored honored to be quoted along with some of the most wonderful therapists on ZynnyMe's blog! What a great opportunity!
Please share this blog wide and far. It's a collection of advice from therapists to other therapists about building a private practice.
I am grateful to ZynnyMe to help me learn the business side of practice and continue to grow as a therapist.
and here is my section:
"My advice is to tell everyone who asks (and some who don't) what you do and what your specialties are. It starts conversations and invites connections, if not referrals. I find that the more out I am as an LGBTQIQA - affirming psychologist who works with people who identify as queer and/or transgender and those who love them, two things happen: 1) I get referrals and 2) positive social change happens. The more I let people know that I, an LGBTQIQA - affirming psychologist, am enthusiastically supporting LGBTQIQA - identified people, the more I am sharing that it is just fine to be queer and transgender and that there is affirming support available for those who want it." - Dr. Abi Weissman (PSY 27497) Specialty: LGBTQIQA - affirming clinical psychology Location: Poway, CA and Hillcrest, San Diego, CA
I'd love to read your comments about my advice. Would you mind sharing your perspectives below?
