Play Therapy Practice Building Academy

Everything you wished you learned in grad school | taught by Lynn Louise Wonders, LPC, RPT-S

Course description

The Play Therapy Practice Building Academy is a business course on how to start, grow or up-level your private practice that markets specifically for play therapy clients.

In the Play Therapy Practice Building Academy, clinicians at any stage of their private practice benefit from exercises that help take you from Point A (where you are now) to Point B (where you would ideally like to be) and everything in between!

This is everything you wished you learned in grad school about the business side of a mental health professional career.  From the nuts and bolts of developing your forms and websites to the blocks that are keeping you from being even more successful, this course is filled with mentorship and guidance from two successful play therapy practitioners, Lynn Louise Wonders and Jen Taylor.  

The basic course gives you access to all of the information at your own pace!  If you need additional support and guidance, there are opportunities for group or individual coaching on areas that you are really stuck.

If private practice has been on your bucket list for a while, then this course will help with the confidence to take the first leap.  If you have a successful solo practice, but are looking to expand to a group, then this course will help pave the way for this growth. 

Whatever your current state of business, this course will help you take it to the next level.  

*Although this  course is play therapy and counseling related, there is no play therapy (APT) credit or NBCC continuing education credit available.

Wow!

by Heather Kaloupek
I have participated in several one-on-one mentoring sessions and play therapy workshops by Lynn Louise Wonders and can honestly say, "I would not be where I am in my practice today without it!" It is phenomenal to have this amount of quality coaching and training that focuses specifically on the business of play therapy in one place. The ability to go at your own pace, in the comfort of your own home, and at an affordable price makes this course a "no-brainer." You won't regret purchasing the PTPBA and will reap the benefits of all you've learned for years to come!

The best investment for my private practice

by Christine Kalil
Going through all of this material with Jen and Lynn has been the best use of money in starting my private practice. Lynn and Jen are so easy to listen to and the material has been invaluable. The exercises in this program have been a lifesaver in helping me learn to better manage my relationship with money and to manage my time. It made me ask myself questions that I didn't even realize I needed to ask. On top of Lynn and Jen's awesome work, the support from the community that they've created has been monumental in helping me develop the confidence that I can work through whatever issue might pop up in my private practice. The community is unimaginably supportive and collaborative. Thank you Lynn and Jen!

Amazing Investment for Your Future

by Andrea Heston, M.S., LMFT
The content provided in this course will prepare you to successfully open and run your own practice. I learned so much about myself, my dreams, and how to put my ideas into action during this process. Absolutely worth the investment and I will be recommending this to other practitioners who are wanting to pursue their own practice.

Life Changing!

by Julia Caruana
This course changed my private practice! It was the 'manual' I had been looking to understanding and managing every aspect of my business. I went from having a solo private practice to having a group practice managing a team of five therapists in only one year and all thanks to the invaluable information you will find at PTPBA! I can't recommend it highly enough!

Worthwhile investment of money and time-it works!

by Adrianne Frischhertz
This course is an amazing and affordable way to advance your business. It’s easy to navigate and packed full of everything you need to identify and tackle the steps to making your business everything you want it to be. The information is presented in a very practical yet personal way by two leaders in the Play Therapy field who truly care about contributing to the success of others. I am so happy that I decided to invest in working with Lynn. Her expertise, support, and just plain kindness inspired me to make big professional changes that I believe will benefit my clients and me for life! Invest in yourself—you won’t regret it!

by Sandy Plotner
I took the basic mastermind and it helped me to not only grow my practice and begin making more income but helped me move forward in my work, find my niche, get out of my rut and explore new options. I can't wait to explore this more fully through this academy. The instructors are knowledgeable and take the time to answer even the "dumbest" questions!

Everything I Could Have Imagined... and MORE!

by Liz Gray
I wish there was an option for 10 stars because the Play Therapy Practice Building Academy (PTPBA) was everything I could have imagined... and more! Lynn Louise Wonders and Jen Taylor are both leaders in the field of Play Therapy and I'm so honored they asked me to contribute as a presenter on the topic of organization. I learned so much in this course and highly recommend it to anyone with a private practice... whether you are brand new or seasoned. Not only is the content GREAT, but you will be added to an exclusive Facebook community (one of my favorite groups on FB) with TONS of support and encouragement. Now go make that purchase... I can't WAIT to see you in the group!

your best investment

by meyleen velasquez
This is a really great program for any play therapist who is thinking about opening a private practice! Lynn & Jen provide tons of useful tips to help guide clinicians into the business aspect of practice.

A MUST to level up your practice (or to start your practice)!

by Kadesha Adelakun
The information in the Play Therapy Practice Building Academy was so helpful and beneficial to my business! This course has helped me to feel more confident in being able to take my practice to the next level to have a more successful and thriving business! This course has also helped tremendously with time management, practicing self-care, and knowing my worth (feeling more comfortable with charging my full rate and not going below a certain dollar amount with my reduced scale clients). Although, I do take some insurance, I have felt more comfortable with getting off of a few of my low paying insurance panels, in order to make "space" for more self pay clients (and not acting from a "fear" based model of not having enough clients aka money, by doing so). Once you take this course, you will also have a (what I feel is a) life long support system. The content in this academy will definitely help take your practice to the next level!

So Helpful

by Sarah Stein-Wolf
I am a newbie PP in Play Therapy. I have not seen anything anywhere with as much rich information as I was able to get through this course. I went through the modules TWICE because there was so much to learn and absorb. I love the interaction with others on the Facebook page. It's like having a big cheering section that I can tuck into the back of my mind and go to for support. I have found that many of the modules have caused me to reflect on deep-seated issues that affect my business (like MONEY) and have actually propelled me to do some of my own work. This only makes me a better therapist and better business owner. I would HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend this set of training for ANYBODY building a PP, not just play therapists. And unlike some other "academies" out there on the web, I feel like this is so much less sale-sy and pushy-- and I really appreciate that.

Play Therapy Practice Building Academy has all you need!

by Alyssa Caldbeck
I've worked with both Lynn Louise Wonders and Jen Taylor in various capacities. Both are fabulous and very knowledgable! PTPBA will help you develop your business and set you on a course for success. The included modules have many facets and components to help you dig in and figure out your business goals and a plan to achieve them. This course encompasses the knowledge you wouldn't know that you need to cover until presented with issues in the course of your business. Whether you are just starting out or have been in private practice- this is a perfect course to take you further so make in investment in yourself and this academy to help you move along in your career and business ventures!

Great Flow and Very Informative

by Janika Mongomery
I enjoyed and learned a lot through the Play Therapy Practice Building Academy. It was not hard to navigate through each section and I felt that I was given valuable information to assist with building my business and also my personal growth. I continue to brainstorm ways to build my business and the academy helped me with writing my plan down and understanding how I want my business to grow! If you are looking for something to help you brainstorm, inform and guide you to the right direction for your business growth this is the course for you!

Absolutely Amazing!

by Andrea Crafton
I know as a therapist how had it can find specific trainings and credits focusing on "play." This is absolutely amazing! Credits and training right at your finger tips all in one place. Saves lots of time searching, costs less, plus no driving, from two qualified play therapists! Can't beat it!

If you are in private practice you need this!

by Melissa Watts
I cannot say enough about this information packed course!its the missing piece of what we need to learn as therapists running a private practice! I was a part of Lynn’s Master Mind group (which I am doing again currently) and this information and the way it is presented has changed the course of my private practice. Not only has it helped to set me up to succeed from a business standpoint but also gave me the tools to work smarter, be more intentional with my time, and be a better therapist. Setting goals, time management, working on my relationship with money, and an understanding of how to market myself and my services have been invaluable lessons taught is a practical and thought provoking way. The thing is you are going to want to come back and revisit these lessons over and over again and with this purchase you have that ability. The best money I ever spent for my practice and myself as a therapist was the money I spent to attend the 90 Day MasterMind group and now Lynn has made that same information available here, but she didn’t stop at that point, she brought in more information, other professionals, and presented it in a way that you can do it in your own time and revisit it as needed. Do yourself and your practice, a huge favor and purchase this program. If you use it, you will not regret it!

Love, Love, Love it!!
