Lessons Learned: A Seasoned Therapist Shares Private Practice Growth Tips with Tracy Kenela, LMHC, CRC, CEDS, ACHT

This is episode 3 in my series of interviews with therapists who are all in private practice.

The goal of this series is to share how they all built their practices. I’m asking them some big questions. From the decision to go into private practice, to how they market their services as well as obstacles they faced and things they wished they would have differently getting started. We are diving into the nitty gritty of starting a private practice. So, if you’ve wondered about starting your own practice, then this series is for you.

And in this week’s episode, I'm talking with Tracy Kenela, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Washington who has been in private practice since 2009 and she shares how she started her practice and how she’s been able to retire her husband from his job as she’s grown over the years. Tracy also gives some tips on networking as well as how she’s built an amazing reputation as a clinician over the years.

But before we jump into the interview, I want to remind you of the upcoming training that my friends Gordon Brewer and James Marland are putting on - Podcasting for Mental Health Professionals A Step-by-Step Course for Building Your Influence, Income, and Impact Through Podcasting.
