How can Private Practice ensure a Better Therapist and Client Match?
If you are operating your own private practice or you work in one, as a therapist you may be aware of some of the advantages private practice offers.
You’ll agree that one of the benefits of a private practice is being able to focus on particular issues, and not be expected to treat a wide range of issues as you might have to have done in a managed service practice.
This can ensure there is a better match between therapist and client.
As well, once your client caseload is full you can begin to be more discerning about which clients you can see.
This is particular useful if you want to target a particular condition like anxiety or depression. In fact, you can begin to become more selective again, and target depression children under 12 years of age.

Clients Selecting Your Expertise
Specializing to a very narrow niche may seem financially unwise. Some therapists would rather attempt to see as many clients as possible who have a diverse range of conditions.
However, some clients will be willing to pay more for your services if you have become an expert in the area where they need help.
If you have a well-established website which details the areas you work in, and gives the specific details describing your target market, people will come seeking your help.
Research is telling us that 80% of patients use online search before setting an appointment.
If you want to specialize and become an expert in a chosen area then private practice will allow you to find the type of clients who need you quicker than any other practice model.
