You deserve to have support and encouragement while navigating the new world of entrepreneurship.

Let us help you confidently launch and grow your private practice!

Susan Block, LMFT successfully unlocked the secrets of building a flourishing 6 figure, private pay practice from ground zero! Here’s her story. 

She is a former elementary school teacher who taught for over 15 years. In her early years of teaching, she realized she climbed the wrong “ladder of success” and went back to graduate school to become a marriage and family therapist. 


Susan began her journey as a private practice owner in 2011 while working full-time as a teacher. She spent her off hours learning marketing, working through money mindset challenges, and gaining the confidence to take calculated risks. 


Additionally, Susan successfully grew her practice with limited time AND on a shoestring budget. After many years of teaching full time and growing the practice, she was able to leave her teaching career behind. Susan understands how scary and exciting it is to leave the safety net of full-time work to chase your private practice dreams. She's excellent at helping clinicians successfully navigate this transition.  


While growing her private practice, Susan established strong relationships with therapists locally and nationally. She coached them on how to successfully build their private practices. 


Susan has a natural talent of compassionately helping others work through their fears and boosting their confidence to reach their goals. Her private practice coaching approach is direct, yet nurturing, supportive, and encouraging.  


She loves spending time running on the beach, watching comedy shows, and volunteering with rescue dogs through a program called Lunch Buddies. Additionally, she understands the importance of work-life balance. 


Susan helps therapists who are in the startup phase of their business or those who have been established for a while, but are feeling stuck not getting the results they were hoping for. 


She offers one on one and group private practice coaching for clinicians who are new to private practice or those feeling stuck in some way and need help breaking through mindset blocks to achieve their goals.

Rave Reviews... 


“Susan helped me get started with social media, revamp my website, network with current referrals, and build new referral sources. She was wonderful at coaching me through my fears, had a fabulous way of validating my concerns, helping me find confidence, and learning to trust myself. I increased my caseload and was able to quit my full time job for private practice.”
