Well…a lot has happened since this practice opened in 2019. We’ve weathered (continue to weather?) COVID, watched all of the therapy world move to seeing clients online (Lucky me – I was already here), and seen the rise of big businesses entering the therapy sphere, selling the personal information of clients and paying their clinicians peanuts (I won’t name anybody directly, but if you’ve listened to any podcast on earth, you’ve heard their advertising).
What a wacky time in the therapy world.
Personally, I also moved – twice – added a couple more states to my personal practice, and began coaching clinicians on how to build their own private practices, in addition to maintaining my own. It’s been interesting, scary, weird, frustrating, and invigorating.
I’ve come to expect that there will always be changes a’changing, and I can’t ever predict what’s going to happen, or even what I WANT to happen – I’ve just got to live my way into it.
So. Here’s one thing that I just lived my way into at the start of 2023. It was a long time coming, and I’m really pumped to see what happens with it next.
Awesomely, this humble solo therapy practice has EXPANDED to a sturdy team of three!
Here’s how we arrived here:
For the past couple of years I’ve felt that I need to be very careful about how many clients I see in order to provide the best of myself and my skill in the therapy room. I’ve maintained a waitlist and turned away clients as I tried to keep things manageable and provide the flexbility and attentiveness my clients deserve. Sometimes, I’ve still bit off more than I could chew, resulting in consequences to my own health and well-being that I’m not willing to sustain.
So, last year I began thinking about my options. If I invested more time in coaching (which I’m still keen to do), it wouldn’t solve the problem of how to provide services to the waitlist at the practice. I couldn’t take on more clients personally. So, I began to consider hiring on some clinicians. I wanted to have the right people on my team, that embodied the philosophy of the practice. And, somehow, things gelled together, the right people came to mind, and – they agreed to come on board!
So – I am so grateful to have Kasey D’Arcangelo and Skyler Dietzman on board as we move into new adventures as a GROUP practice!
Kasey and Skyler are lifelong helpers and naturally gifted clinicians (As I said, I pursued both of them when I made the call to expand the practice), and I cannot endorse their work enough. Please take the time to navigate to the Meet the Therapists section of our NEW website to learn about their backgrounds and specialties.
You can also learn about them on Psychology Today:
And! This means we have immediate openings for clients that are looking for our areas of specialty (again, check out our info on the Meet the Therapists page). We love serving Keene, New Hampshire (where the practice was born!), are excited to expand into Ocean City, New Jersey (where I grew up!) and Oakland Park, Florida (where Skyler is!). With Telehealth, though, the sky is the limit – we serve all of New Hampshire, New Jersey, and Florida online!
And just to add another plug here – have you taken the time to peruse the new website? It took years for me to hire a professional to give the site a facelift, but I thought bringing on our new therapists was the right time to pull the trigger. Admittedly, this new site is SO much more user-friendly. Please take a minute to comb through it if you haven’t already!
Please don’t hesitate to email any of us to learn more about the practice. We want to hear from you!
Onward and upward!
Take Good Care,
