startup nation, meet:

Deb Lyman

Deb Lyman, LCSW is a therapist, clinical supervisor and consultant in private practice in Oakland, CA. She loves helping early and mid-career therapists develop more confidence with both the clinical and business sides of their practices, particularly when it comes to issues of fees and the frame.

She'll help you think more deeply about the clinical implications of your business decisions and the business implications of your clinical decisions.

Show notes

  1. The Business Realm - systems, tracking, billing, profit and loss, and other concrete logistics.

  2. The Clinical Realm - the symbolic meaning of money and the fee to your client.

  3. The Personal Realm - your personal money story and how it influences your thinking in the other two realms.
