Gain Skills That Can Help Make Your Private Practice a Thriving Reality
Successfully running a marriage and family therapy counseling practice isn’t what most mental health care practitioners learn to do while gaining expertise in their fields. As a result, many gifted therapists and counselors see their dreams of a private practice evaporate. The small business development and entrepreneurship specialization is designed to prepare you to manage the business aspects of a clinical practice, or use your expertise in an entrepreneurial fashion. You will also gain knowledge of organization, marketing, strategic planning and leadership, which will help guide you in developing your future private practice.

“Getting a graduate degree is going to take work. It’s not going to be easy. Whether you’re doing a distance program or an onsite program, you’re going to have to put forth the energy and the time. But I think that it’s absolutely worth it.” -Erica London, Master of Arts in Marriage and Family Therapy (2016)
