Super Sized Private Practice: An interview with Dr. Larry Beer

starting a private practice

When I first met Larry in his private practice, I had graduated less than two years prior. I had extensive experience with youth and families, but not in private practice. Larry took a chance on me and taught me so much about private practice. With over 40 clinicians working at his Kalamazoo counseling private practice, Child and Family Psychological Services, he clearly has a “super sized” private practice. Also, he’ll be on a panel at the APA conference talking about running a super-sized private practice. In my mind, he’s the one that really helped me learn the foundations of business and private practice.

For almost a year, I wanted to interview him for the podcast, but I knew I wanted to do it in person. The 25th Anniversary Party for his practice, Child and Family Psychological Services, was a perfect time to reconnect!

What you’ll learn about private practice

  1. How to run a private practice with over 40 clinicians
  2. How to market your private practice in an authentic way
  3. Something that Larry has only told a few people
  4. The one thing that every counselor in America should know
