...feeling overworked, underpaid and micro-managed by insurance companies in your therapy practice...and...
Not getting paid what you’re worth...
Surprise audits, withholds, and waiting for your money...
Having to see way too many clients to make ends meet...
Trying make sense of confusing & conflicting answers you're told about coverage...
You've worked so hard to learn how to treat your clients…
You studied and read until your eyes crossed - through college, grad school and beyond…
You did your time in your internship…
You paid more than your fair share of dues…
And when you're finally ready to step out into the REAL world -
They want you to put in another 3,000 hours before you can even be considered for acceptance onto insurance panels…
Then, when you do finally finish up your 3,000 hours ... more often than not...
You still can’t get accepted into these providers’ little “clubs”
But that's not even the worst part --
Because even if you do meet all their confusing requirements...
Even if you are one of the lucky ones who do get accepted…
Their reimbursement rate for your degree level, and the time you have to spend jumping through their hoops...
...can easily have you making less money per hour than if you were working in an agency! And unless you're part of a big group practice or clinic providing a full range of services...
Good luck trying to negotiate your reimbursement rates with these big commercial providers...
You're like David facing Goliath. And you have no rock to sling...
You're forced to accept what they choose to give you, when they choose to give it to you.
My name is Dr. Deb Legge. I am a Licensed Mental Health Counselor in Buffalo, NY
Over the past 28 years I've made every mistake you could possibly make when it comes to building a successful therapy practice.
When I was starting out, I couldn't take insurance.
Which gave me 2 choices...
1. Figure out how to get self-pay clients
2. Risk having to walk away from my private practice dreams forever...
The pressure was on...
The mortgage, car payment, and other bills weren't going to pay themselves...
I was a single mother to a teenage son at the time, and THAT is what really
left me with no choice...
I HAD to succeed
Maybe you are in a similar type of pressure cooker. It's hot in there isn't it?
But you can use that fire one of two ways - you can sit still... while the heat slowly rises, and eventually boils you alive...
You can make success the only thing you will accept as your reality from this day forward.
I chose the latter.
And through a lot of trial and error, (and more mistakes than I'd like to admit), I pretty much "cracked the code" on how to bring in private pay clients...

We’ll show you how to get more clients for the life of your practice - whether or not you take insurance
So many hard-working practice owners spend their careers handcuffed by insurance companies because they’re worried about how and where they’ll get private pay clients. If you’re determined to stand apart from the crowd, and break free from the golden handcuffs, this program is for you.
You’ll complete this program knowing who you are, whom you serve, your value to others and the assets and benefits you bring to your clients and referrers.
You’ll pinpoint how and why you are the best choice for your ideal clients and how to communicate that message to them. You’ll feel confident about where to find your ideal clients and how to get in front of them.
You’ll learn a whole new mindset with regard to reaching out – one that significantly diminishes any hesitations or uncomfortable feelings you may currently have about marketing.
You’ll have a predictable, methodical client-attracting process that you can use throughout your career, whenever you are in need of clients.
You’ll have what it takes to break free from any insurance business that is now getting in the way of your livelihood and/or happiness. You’ll experience the confidence and freedom to create your ideal practice.
This is a proven method that has been used over decades by thousands of clinicians who decided they wanted to call the shots in their practices. It is a simple, straight-forward blueprint that works when you work it.
Make the commitment to follow the blueprint and, like so many others, you’ll have the confidence and skills needed to attract your ideal clients, whether or not you take their insurance..
This does not have to be an “all or nothing” endeavor. Many folks choose where to start (perhaps with a company with low and/or slow reimbursements, too many audits, or one that is just plain difficult to work with) and move forward from there. Once you open up that time in your schedule, you can fill those spots with private pay clients.
Since private pay is often significantly higher than insurance reimbursement, it usually doesn’t take long to make up for (and exceed) the insurance revenue. Some practice owners decide on a hybrid practice (where they keep some favorable insurance business), knowing they now have what it takes to eliminate it if needed in the future.
Ultimately you’ll have much more influence and control over your income once you are deciding where it’s coming from.
The beauty of this program format is that completion time is up to you. We encourage you to take your time with the first (foundational) module as it gives you the edge you need to start getting noticed.
Subsequent modules flow from there. Alternatively, you may choose to complete the program material in a weekend. Either way, you can put what you learn into practice as you move through the training.
Insurance companies vary with regard to their terms for resignation. Most companies require a 60-90 day transition, during which time you can provide options for the affected clients.
You’ll find helpful checklists and scripts in the program that will methodically walk you through the resignation process, and help you talk with your clients and referrers about your decision not to take insurance.
This is a step-by-step program that guides you through creating a blueprint personalized for you. You simply listen to the training videos/audios, utilize the samples and handouts and scripts included with the training, and follow the directions for putting all to work for you in your practice.
As a bonus, you’ll get two month’s of IMPLEMENTATION calls to ask questions and get coached on strategically making the program work for you. You’re not alone, so it never has to feel scary or overwhelming.
Most people struggle with this because they don’t know what to say. The scripts included in the training will help you have effective conversations with your clients. The blueprint will help you build confidence in your business decision and give you peace of mind knowing that you’re able to attract more private pay clients when needed. It’s all right there for you in the program.
We know that your livelihood is based on your time with clients. We’re also sensitive to the fact that you didn’t go to school to become a professional marketer. This program is intuitive (especially for therapists), easy to follow, and efficient.
You don’t need hundreds of private pay clients RIGHT NOW! You’ll have what it takes to get what you need now and, in that process, to grow referral relationships that will last a lifetime.
