Helping Therapists Reach their Private Practice Goals

Remember the business course you took in Grad school? The one that taught you how to run your own business and all about marketing and advertising? Yeah, me neither.

The thought of starting a Private Practice can seem overwhelming when you have little to no knowledge about business. My personal experience of starting a Private Practice by fumbling my way through Google and hounding my colleagues with questions, fueled my passion to help others achieve this goal with less frustration and confusion. With my step by step, easy to follow process, you'll reach your Private Practice goals in no time!



Hi, my name is Angela! I'm an LMFT in California and sole owner of Lighthouse Family Counseling (my Private Practice), as well as Classroom to Couch (my coaching business).

When I sat down to begin the process of opening my Private Practice, I was completely lost and beyond frustrated. Each time I thought I was getting somewhere I would have to backtrack because I missed a step. I kept thinking to myself, it shouldn't be this hard! 

I needed someone to teach me the sequential steps to follow so I could ensure my business was established properly. I found some coaches here and there but they were either well outside of my budget or not offering what I needed. 

A wise person once stated: "Create the things you wish existed." and that's exactly what I did.

My coaching business was born out of my own frustrating experience with starting my Practice. In our sessions, I will walk you through the process of getting your Private Practice established as a business, ensuring the professional services you use are HIPAA compliant, and introduce you to using social media for marketing, advertising and networking. 

Whether you're just getting started or feeling stuck in the midst of your process, I got you!

Angela was very genuine and helpful. I really enjoyed her program and style. I appreciate all the information she gave me to open my own private practice. The information was presented with visuals, clear, easy to understand, and straight to the point.

Before this course I had no clue where to even start. Now, I feel like I am ready to take the next steps with the support and guidance she gave me, including the PDFs with the steps I can use moving forward. She also offered to answer any questions I had, and to keep in touch. It's great to hear I can reach out to her if anything else comes up. I definitely recommend her course!

Thanks so much Angela!
