Maureen Werrbach

Maureen Werrbach, LCPC, is a multi-business entrepreneur in the mental health field. She owns Urban Wellness, a large counseling group practice in Chicago, The Group Practice Exchange, a business coaching firm, and co-owns Group Practice Builders, a business focused conference for group practice owners.

Her aim in life is helping the helpers. As a helping professional herself, she knows first-hand the focus healthcare providers put on making a positive impact in the world. She also knows that many healthcare professionals put business second to boots-on-the-ground helping in the community. That’s where she comes in. She helps healthcare owners learn how to successfully start and scale their businesses, so that they can have a larger impact on their communities.

Show notes

  1. Her biggest bad habit that is hard to break and her guilty pleasure (she says, "don't judge me".)

  2. That she is writing her first book.

  3. How she never intended to be doing what she is doing.

  4. Something she had to learn in order to grow her numerous businesses.
