My guest today is Melissa Thompson, LMFT, who practices in NYC. Our topic is how to create an e-course, which is something she and two colleagues have done. They began with a blog that they expanded upon to provide the e-course for moms. E-courses can be a great way to expand your authority and reach, and they create additional income streams as well. Melissa shares her favorite tools, tips, and what she’s learned in thinking outside the box to meet her clients’ needs. Join us!

Today’s conversation is with Katie May, from just outside Philadelphia, whose therapy practice specifically focuses on teens and adolescents. Our topic is one that frequently comes up in the STC Facebook community: starting a group within your private practice.

With Katie, I’ve found someone who has successfully navigated the ins and outs of this process. In fact, she is known as The Group Guru. She’s figured out what to do and what not to do, so we’re splitting this daunting topic into a two-part conversation. Today we are discussing the format and inspiration for a group, how to structure a group and Katie’s pearls of wisdom. Join us!
