In past posts I’ve explored the the positives and negatives of joining a group private practice. Now, it’s time to focus on the pros and cons of running a solo private mental health practice. When I opened Wasatch Family Therapy nearly 10 years ago, it started out as a solo practice that slowly built over time into a group practice. While I like being “in charge” and autonomous, I’m also an extravert and I highly value my connections with others.
I reached out to other private practice therapists who practice alone to see why they chose to “fly solo.”
