"Adrien has been so helpful in getting me started and growing my private practice! It is so overwhelming to learn about billing, insurance, budgeting, and marketing when we didn't learn how to do these things in school! Having someone help with strategy and support helped save me the time and frustration of figuring it out by myself.
Being in a solo practice can also feel isolating, so having a community to connect and relate with helped me to feel like I wasn't going at it completely alone. And it was great to be able to get ideas from other group members! And finally, and perhaps most importantly, having weekly, monthly, and quarterly accountability forced me to stay on task. While I didn't always do everything I set out to do, having these goals and check in got me to move further than I would have without the group accountability.
Private practice is hard! And because there is so much to learn, it can be easy to feel like you can't do it. Adrien's enthusiastic support helped me realize that it is doable! And having the experience behind someone who has been there and worked through many of the problems I've had is invaluable."

“Adrien is the ultimate package. With ED supervision and savvy business coaching, I have been able to surpass expectations for my private practice. Being a part of her Boss Club and weekly casework groups, I get both my business & clinical questions answered fast. I constantly feel supported, grounded, motivated and overall inspired so I can be a better clinician for my clients. I am not someone who needs a lot of handholding, but I do thrive being on a team. So when I heard it can be lonely going solo into private practice, I did some digging, found Adrien and have thankfully never felt alone.”
"Adrien has been one of the most effective business coaches I've worked with (and I've invested quite a bit of money in business coaching and course!). During our coaching, I have been navigating a lot of changes and growth in my practice. I often start our calls feeling a little scattered but I always leave a coaching session feeling calm and focused on the next steps I need to take. Adrien is so effective at helping me focus in on the most important parts of a business growth decision (like adding an office location or hiring an employee) and is skilled at acknowledging the objective and subjective pieces of that decision. She has extensive experience in running a large, successful group practice so I trust I'm in good hands as I work on growing my own! Adrien provides great coaching, guidance and accountability to her clients. Highly recommend!"
"Stepping out on your own and starting a private practice can be very scary and overwhelming. Adrien's knowledge, experience, and guidance gave me the confidence and tools I needed to expand my private practice into a full-time business. Her enthusiasm is contagious and she truly inspired me to take risks and ultimately achieve my business goals."
