Intentional Private Practice
Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here!
Are you a mental health provider, or a similar helper-healer in a relationship-based business looking to launch, grow, or re-define your business? Maybe you’re dreaming of working for yourself. You may have started your business but struggle with the things we didn’t learn in school–like the big M-word: marketing. Or maybe you’ve been in practice for awhile but you’ve lost your mo-jo, caught up in binds about policies, serving your clients but not serving yourself in an emotionally and financially sustainable way.
I see you, and you’re not alone. Wherever you are on your private practice journey, get ready to infuse your work with a healthy dose of your values so you can show up authentically and with intention. That’s what Intentional Private Practice is all about!

Dr. Dwyer’s Podcast Interview on Clearly Clinical:
Countertransference as a Catalyst for Therapeutic Change and Values
Aligned Business Practices
Kim forms relationships—and that is what sold me. I would recommend working with Kim to business owners who want to learn how to build not only a business, but a life.
Kim is warm, genuine, and flexible, meets you where you’re at, and is a trouble shooter and cheerleader. She cares about me as a human and a business owner—and that makes all the difference.” –Jennifer McDonald, Ph.D., Sound Psychology Services
“When I started coaching, I was transitioning from a job I hated into my own practice, and I was overwhelmed, worried and had questions about starting my business. I was skeptical of coaches and worried that I wouldn’t get what I needed from the experience.
After working with Kim, I feel more secure in what I’m doing, have grown my referral sources, quit my full time job, and clarified values in my business and my personal life. I’m growing my practice and have someone I can turn to with questions.
Join the conversation through our community. You’ll find us at Intentional Private Practice–Community on FaceBook, or by clicking here. Share a tip, find a new strategy, share or gain some inspiration and motivation. I frequently share videos (occasionally of my dogs but mostly full of juicy tips). You’ll also get a sneak peek of upcoming trainings, blogs, and group opportunities. I hope you’ll join us!
You might be in solo practice–or longing to transition in that direction–but you don’t have to go it alone. Having worked in the mental health field for over two decades, and with experience owning a practice, co-owning a group practice, and working in other people’s practices, I am expertly poised to help you establish, grow, or transform your practice. I’ll help you identify your passions and dreams for your business and translate this into manageable goals and steps. Working together, you’ll develop a business that aligns with your own unique values, so that you can develop a thriving and fulfilling workplace.
iLooking for support through community? Feeling like the “private” in private practice is taking over? Group coaching and consultation may be just what the doctor ordered. Identifying common goals and direction, I support group clients in setting individual goals that align with the overall focus of a group of similarly-minded providers. Through conference calls and a private group chat interface, we work on these goals together. Group services provide the benefit of a built-in network and “hive mind” to run ideas through. You’ll also find training opportunities–some individually paced and others as part of a group–to strengthen your skills and align your practice.
My current group offering, Intentional Private Practice: Kick Start Group Coaching, starts up again in January 2020! Sign up now to secure your slot. More details here.
