All of Your Therapist Resources

Being a therapist is hard work. Seeing clients, networking, managing your office, keeping track of your finances, the list goes on and on. Therapists not only have to be good at the job they have formally been trained in, they also have to be savvy business owners to ensure that their private practices succeed. That’s a lot to handle.

Here at TheraNest we’ve developed a collection of blog posts that are centered around providing therapists with the resources they need to succeed in their personal and professional lives. From figuring out if your session notes are HIPAA compliant to learning how to diversify your income to recognizing the signs of therapist burnout—we’ve got you covered.

To be a good therapist you have to not only take care of your clients, but you have to take care of yourself as well. Building meaningful relationships with others in your profession, finding mentors, and practicing self-care are all important to your overall well-being (and the well-being of your private practice).

Additionally, being in private practice means developing a work-life balance that works for you. The first step in that process is to create boundaries for yourself. It might be tempting to devote all of your time to your clients, but this is neither sustainable or healthy. Instead, using the information provided on our blog, decide early on how much time you are going to delegate to different aspects of your life (and stick to the schedule!). By investing in yourself, you’re investing in your clients and your business.

Furthermore, don’t be afraid to admit when you don’t know something. Nobody has all the answers. The resources outlined in the following section are curated to help answer the questions many therapists may be thinking about but don’t know who to ask. Go ahead and take a look around our Therapist Resources section and make sure to share with others in your field so they can benefit from them as well!
