Welcome To Our Home!
"It is my belief, after 27 years of personal experience, that our profession is in a state of crisis; that both mental health counselors and colleagues in related disciplines are practicing perilously close to a disastrous end and most are not aware of it.
I see this as a result of inadequate preparation by our universities, limited focus from our professional organizations, and a lack of comprehensively developed continuing education programs.
And I intend to do what I can to keep what happened to me from happening to you!"
Our Primary Objective Is...
...to reach new and prospective mental health and related counseling professionals at the intersection of, Profession and Regulation, and help the willing ward off professional, personal, and financial disaster.
To provide the information you need, 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?

"Great setting for in-depth discussion and learning."
"Today's course was very informative about the new rules changes and how to respond to a complaint. I highly recommend!"
