You’re probably entering that phase where you start to set yourself up for 2023, you’re thinking about what your goals are gonna be, what you’re not going to do, and what you hope to achieve.

But regardless of where you are within your private practice journey, I’m challenging you to make these last few months count, to dig deep, and to make next year the one for big changes within your business – and more importantly – within yourself.

So if you’ve been looking for a sign to either start your own private practice, grow from solo to group, or become a next-level group practice boss, this is it…and you’re certainly not alone, because Practice of the Practice is doing something we’ve never done before.

We’re so convinced that now is the time for you to grow that we’re dedicating all our resources to help you do it. We’re all in. Every single one of us. And we’re inviting you to go all in and level up.

From September 12 to 15 we’ll be running ‘Level Up’ week to help you decide what will work best for you in your private practice journey. There will be webinars, Q&As with experts, and a chance for you to meet your accountability partners, facilitators, and community.

So if you’re ready to make a change and level up, register at and follow our Facebook and Instagram pages @practiceofthepractice for live updates and event details.

Make September 2022 the month that you start your journey and level up.

Rebecca uses evidenced-based approaches, but her first and foremost is the “no-nonsense counseling” approach, which cuts out the rigid, too-clinical feel that therapy sometimes has and welcomes the raw human interaction.

Brainstorming what Killin’ It Camp could be

Knowing that there was flexibility and also a … breaking away from [what] would be a corporate-type of conference. (Rebecca Sidoti)

The organizers and creators of Killin’ It Camp knew in some ways what they didn’t want it to be; they didn’t want it to be 8-hours of sitting and listening with no respite or space for creative exploration or communication.

There was an urge to transition away from corporate America and to make this conference their own, and in a way that they would want to attend as a guest.

Design by survey

The Practice of the Practice team sent out a survey to all their intrigued participants, asking them to send in their preferences.

[Those surveys] helped to narrow down some of those options because we saw some beautiful places, but getting from the airport there was [not possible].

Some people specified that they wanted:

  • The event to be outdoors or to have a wellness balance
  • Someplace warm
  • To have transport and meals included

Creating a space for networking

Killin’ It Camp in 2019 had pop-up events, where people with skills just launched a little event on any given day and invited people to join them.

In 2022, this same principle will be enacted to facilitate a space of genuine curiosity, skill-learning, and networking.

I love the discussions around, “Yes, I have my private practice and I’m really good at filling my niche, but how do I take that to a broader audience beyond private practice?” (Joe Sanok)

What can you test that could take you beyond your private practice?

Rebecca’s advice to private practitioners

Everything is doable. Remember that! Start doing it, especially when you feel nervous.
