My Story

Jennifer Sneeden

Hey, I’m Jennifer

I work with therapists, counselors and psychologists who are sick of earning less than they are worth and totally ready to build thriving, 6-figure private practices.

I give them the tools they need to consistently fill their schedules with clients they love, without having to stress over where their next clients are coming from. (In fact, I have so much fun helping my clients attract more clients that I sometimes forget I’m actually working.)

After getting my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy, I couldn't wait to start my own practice! It had been my dream for years. But as I began building my practice, I saw that clients didn’t just show up on my doorstep asking to hand me money.

At first I was frustrated

I spent a lot of time and money on my education, now what? (Actually, I was a bit beyond frustrated, I was starting to get a little desperate.) However, before grad school, I spent 10 years working as a consultant. During this time I learned so much about what does and doesn’t work to build and market a business.
I began to apply what I knew about running a successful consulting business to my own private practice. Over the next two years, I discovered that many of the same principles that worked for consulting also worked for psychotherapy. I found myself with a successful, profitable private practice.

Of course, I’ve made a few mistakes along the way. Let’s call them “Lessons Learned”. But as a result of this, I developed a system for establishing, growing and maintaining a private practice that works tremendously well, no matter your specialty.

However, in talking with friends and colleagues, I’ve realized that many excellent therapists have never been able become profitable in private practice. Some of them don’t even know where to start. Instead they feel stuck in agency work, overworked, overwhelmed, and underpaid.

Excellent clinical skills are just 50% of what it takes to succeed in private practice. Marketing and practice-building skills are the other 50%.

Therapists just aren’t getting the essential business and marketing skills they need to be successful in private practice. Which is why I started this business in 2009. I’m committed to helping psychotherapists – just like you – building thriving, 6-figure private practices.

One of the things I committed to myself when I left the consulting world was that I would no longer allow work to run my entire life. My lifestyle is essential to me; I don’t want to be chained to work all the time (you probably don’t either, right?). So when I’m not speaking national conferences or creating irresistible training programs for my clients, you’ll probably find me hanging out on the beach with my kids, trying to get my dogs to listen to me, or curled up on the couch reading a trashy murder mystery.

Ready to start filling your schedule with a steady stream of your ideal clients?

I believe practice-building and marketing skills are essential for every psychotherapist in private practice today.

But I don’t believe it needs to be stressful or take up hours each day. Seriously.

In fact, why don’t you grab a copy of my Practice-Building Checklist, and you’ll be on the way to learning everything you need to grow your practice.

Here’s to your 6-figure success!
