Our Goal For The Mental Health Practitioner Is To...


Know how to properly set up your business on many different levels, with the help of professionals, in order to protect yourself. It's not enough to rent a space and hang your shingle.  Dig your well before you need the water.


Developing solid practice procedures is critical not only to providing a good client experience but, protecting yourself from, "Things That Go Bump In The Night". The cheapest, quickest options are almost never the best.


It isn’t a matter of “if” something unfortunate will happen, it's “when”. If you have prepared properly you should be able to defend yourself, but you'll still need to know what to do! Are you sure you're ready? We're here to help you with that.

Our Vision Statement

"Our driving vision is to move the mental health profession to a new and safer place through the empowerment that follows willful education. We will accomplish our objective by "group-mentoring" those professionals that recognize we work in a changed and dangerous world."

Our Mission Statement

"To reach new and prospective mental health professionals, teach them how to Protect their families, property, and businesses, to Equip them with bleeding-edge tools with which to run their practices, and Defend themselves from people and marketplace forces that have the potential to destroy what they have worked so hard to build."
