Make Money. Gain Freedom. Thrive in Your Dream Career.

Run your own thriving private practice.

No overwhelm.

No head-scratching.

No working yourself to the bone.

YOU ARE A THERAPIST.

You are awesome at what you do.

You are either working on it part time while juggling your full time job and all of your other responsibilities, or you used the pandemic as an opportunity to dip your toe into the private practice world.

You are great at helping people.

You are uncertain.

You need to decide whether to go all in with this practice thing, and stop holding a part (or full time) safety net job, all the while daydreaming about kicking ass in your very own practice.

It's decision time.

You have clients and systems.

You've figured out the basics and this fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants thing has been working so far.

But...

You are overwhelmed.

So maybe the fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants thing is getting old and you're feeling overwhelmed spending too much (unbillable) time on trying to get organized. The stress is building up.

You are excited.

You want to take that leap into full-time, own-your-own-business, work for yourself private practice. You know you could make this an amazing career.

You need a plan.

If only someone could tell you how to get more clients, master your intake, smooth your systems, make more money, and gain more freedom...

STOP

Wondering if you've got what it takes to fulfill your dreams.


START

Feeling confident and know you can make the leap into full-time private practice and kick some ass.

Using Google as your best friend.


START

Getting the answers that are relevant to you as a Canadian therapist.

STOP

I'm Alison Maslin-Maratos, a therapist, business owner, and coach.

I was in your shoes. I walked in them and stumbled in them. There were sleepless nights, endless research and a ridiculous amount of spinning my wheels during my first days (and years) as a therapist in private practice.


I knew how to be a therapist—but a business owner? That's a different ballgame.


I wished so badly for someone to show me the way. Someone who could walk me through the steps to take my practice from being to thriving.

There were days I felt lost and confused, wondering if I should just throw in the towel.

As I built my business, I learned from my mistakes—and successes. After 25 years in this field, now with a kick-ass 6-figure practice, I want to show others how to do it.


I've built a program to streamline the process, make it achievable, realistic, tangible, and full of my infamous nuggets of wisdom. This is a program for therapists just like you—who have the drive and passion to build their dreams.


Consider it your handbook to ROCKING your career.

A 6-week Exclusive Program for Canadian Kick-Ass therapists to take your practice to version 2.0!

What Will You Master in This Program?

We will tackle the topics that will drive your success. Roll up your sleeves, take a deep breath, and we will dive in to:

MONEY

You will learn why you don’t need to be avoidant, afraid or continue to doubt how you are handling the bucks that are coming into and going out of your practice.

STRESS + SYSTEMS

We are going to audit how you are doing business from a systems perspective and streamline that shit. No more chasing down clients for payment on Friday afternoons, doing notes on Saturday mornings, and no more Sunday nights where you are dreading the work you have to tackle on Monday morning before you can even see your clients.

ONLINE PRESENCE

Discover why anyone who tells you that therapists should hide under a rock and avoid social media is wrong. Enough said.

MARKETING

This is where it gets real. We are going to develop a marketing strategy that is tailored to your practice. A strategy that gets results so that you can stop doing EAP work, and attract the clients you love to work with and who will actually pay you what you’re worth.

ALTERNATIVE INCOME STREAMS

Now it’s time to talk about how you can level up even further. We will talk about the ways in which you can generate income that does not involve 1:1 therapy. Ideas will flow, dreams will be hatched and plans will be made to move you further forward.

gET THE SECRETS FROM AN INDUSTRY EXPERT.

Eliminate the guesswork and Level-Up with confidence, clarity, and support.

Clarity

Filled with workbooks and must-have resources, the program will give you clarity on what steps you need to take — and when. You will have a step-by-step plan to take your practice from surviving to thriving.

You will finish the program with a clear-cut blueprint to your success.


Systems

Find out which systems you need and what to avoid. With so many options (think accounting, time management, scheduling, websites), you could spend a month's salary and a year's worth of headaches trying to figure out what is going to work. This program will give you the inside scoop.

Community

Going into private practice doesn't have to be lonely. You'll make connections with therapists who are just as awesome as you are.

A big bonus will be accountability. You'll have people to make sure you take those actionable steps to take your practice to the next level.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I work in a group?

If you have ever paid for advice for anything, you know that you get the details, write them down, and then usually go home and try to make sense of it. Alone. Well, that sucks. So we aren’t going to do that. You are going to connect with other therapists who will ask good questions, listen to yours, both take in and share information, and just develop really cool networks...and dare I say friendships?...with other people who feel like your people.

Can I have some alone time?

Each week, I will drop the workbook for the topic we will be working on. You can go through the pages (or not). You can think about how you want to implement the tips and tricks I share before the coaching session, or you can come to the session like a sponge and soak up the info, and then reference the workbook as you make plans and put them into action throughout the week.


Can I work with you alone?

Sure! But most people benefit from the small group format. As I said, you can use Voxer in between the sessions, but if you feel that you need more support after our time together is over, we can talk about booking some 1:1 coaching sessions to help you with whatever you need.

What if I have a question about the material between sessions?

I’ve got you! You can get the answers you need in real time. I use an app called Voxer. It is basically a walkie-talkie (and it even has a cool walkie talkie sound...I know I am old) where you can voice-record a question, a comment, a meltdown or a success and share it with the group and wait for the wisdom-bombs to come through. It will carry you between coaching sessions so that you remain committed to doing the work, are inspired by the ideas and successes of your fellow group members, and just feel connected. You will never say that private practice is lonely EVER. AGAIN.


I haven’t been coached since Little League. What can I expect?

Our sessions will involve talking, listening, laughing, doing and flexing some muscles. Ok, not really, muscle flexing, but more like this: I will share some information on the topic of the week, and we will spend the rest of the time helping you implement the information in a way that benefits your practice. I do not profess to know all the things. I am the Sherpa, not the guru. Your fellow group members will play a valuable role in the information sharing. I am going to guide you through the information and help you apply the stuff that resonates with you, and identify what you are doing well so that you start to believe that you really CAN do this. Everyone will benefit from each other’s questions, suggestions, and processing of the information. My coaching will benefit you, but you will also benefit from the coaching I provide your peers. You know how your teacher encouraged you to ask a question as there was always someone else in the crowd who had the same question?...that.


Do I get to keep the information?

YES! The written materials come in the form of a PDF workbook. You can copy it and fill it and refill it. The weekly calls will be recorded on Zoom, and you will have access to them forever.





Coaching for Therapists

Therapists are notoriously good at telling clients to get out of their comfort zone and take risks…while not being super-keen on doing it themselves. Wah-wah.

Why You NEED to Do This

So here’s the good news. You are going to take a risk, but it won’t feel like a risk at all. You are going to be coached. Yes, coached. I have done this before and I have made mistakes. I have developed strategies that actually work, and I am going to share them with you (that’s coaching). I am going to help you implement these strategies (read: coaching). I am going to make sure you are successful (more coaching). Get where I’m going here? You are taking a risk to move toward success, but you are not going it alone.

I haven’t been coached since Little League. What can I expect?

Our sessions will involve talking, listening, laughing, doing the stuff of kick-ass therapists. I will share valuable information on the module for that week, and, as a group, we dive into the obstacles you face, the goals you will set, and the steps you will take. Your fellow group members will play a valuable role in the information sharing. Everyone will benefit from each other’s questions, suggestions, and processing of the information.

Do I get to keep the information?

YES! The written materials come in the form of fillable PDF workbooks and worksheets. You can copy it and fill it and refill it.

Our weekly sessions will take place via Zoom and the recordings uploaded to our membership portal where you can watch them as many times as you want. It's like those family movies where you think you caught all the jokes the first time, but when you watch them with your kids again (perhaps for the thousandth time), you catch those little nuggets of awesomeness...

Except this time, they are my famous nuggets of wisdom.
