“Grodzki helps us create a blueprint for a successful practice, regardless of the stage of our career. . . . For those who read the first edition of this book, this second edition includes six new chapters as well as various updates to cover issues that have emerged over the last fifteen years. . . . [A]pproachable and engaging. She incorporates personal experiences as well as anecdotes from her workshops and private consulting, and she offers helpful exercises. . . . [A] well-written and useful book.”
“This book is filled with useful information and it is extremely well written. I recommend it for any therapist starting a private practice.”
- The Milton H. Erickson Foundation Newsletter
“I found Building Your Ideal Private Practice an inspiring, relevant, intelligent, and practical resource that had me excited about what I can do with my own private practice. . . . Unlike some other ‘set up your business’ books I have read, this guide speaks to therapists in their own language . . . . I would like to see this as compulsory reading for every graduating professional in our field―helping new clinicians avoid unnecessary confusion, pain, and even financial loss through the recognition that they are as much business people as they are healing professionals.”
- The Neuropsychotherapist
“With its personal preface, instructions, examples, anecdotes, exercises, tips, pre- and post-test, and other resources, this edition of Building Your Ideal Private Practice is relevant, timely, and helpful. As Grodzki mentions, it would be an effective tool for psychologists, counselors, life coaches, and other ‘therapists.’”

The book doesn’t just focus on the HOW and WHAT to do (what do I need to do next?), but also focuses on the WHO (the person you need to be-come to do this successfully).
Lynn lists numerous ideas to build your practice. What is most important is creating a business that embraces YOUR values.
The book is truly a must read for anyone interested in the subject of private practice!
If you are comfortable and secure with the idea of small business building and marketing, you may want something more general or standard (e.g. Duct Tape Marketing). But if you find yourself feeling well outside of your comfort zone with the standard therapist marketing advice (e.g. put together a presentation and deliver it at your local community center, go to chamber of commerce meetings to network), you are likely to find something you can do in Lynn's book. I did. Her ideas on how to build a clear, positive direction and attitude, were really helpful for me as it helped me identify the anxieties getting in my way and build my confidence in the area of building my business.
