Although being in private practice has many advantages, such as being able to set your own schedule and create your own dream practice, one of the major drawbacks is that being out on our own can often leave us feeling disconnected from colleagues. This can be a tough adjustment, particularly after the built-in support of graduate school and in organizational settings. As therapists, we often need to consult on issues related to ethics, client safety and challenging or complicated clinical cases. Furthermore, unexpected issues can arise in business settings, such as the need for boundary setting, fair pay or negotiation of difficult conversations with colleagues.
