This is why I do this…I received this from one of my adolescent clients when I was leaving from my therapist position at a group counseling practice here in Maryland. And no, I am not fluent in French…I’m still working on mastering the English language 😂. Prior to this position, I just KNEW that I wanted to have my own private counseling practice; to be my own boss, to enact change the RIGHT way for my clients, and to carve out my legacy. But private practice is NOT for the faint of heart and I became apprehensive of the possibility of taking this step after working for the group practice; where I worked long hours and had no guarantee of how much money I may take home if clients failed to show for their appointments. This fear; left unchecked, would have inevitably kept me away from my own greatness, and I would also be a hypocrite. I am blessed with some of the most influential and supportive people in my life who remind me that I can do anything that I set my mind to, that I have the skills and abilities, that I CAN.
And here we are….
Rooted For Greatness was formed by myself and my colleague/friend Jasmine as progressive step towards our professional greatness as we support others towards their own personal greatness. We all were created to do great things; however, life and circumstances can oftentimes cause us to fear taking certain risks.
Perhaps one of these things has hindered you from your “try”:
- Access to Resources
Our hope is that through this site (and ongoing strides towards growing our private practice) that we can help send a little encouragement/help/support your way to where you will no longer see these as hindrances; but more as springboards towards greatness.
Now let’s grow…..~NB😘
Natasha, first of all, CONGRATULATIONS!!! I think stepping out and becoming your own boss is wonderful! My goal is to one day own my own private practice, but for many reasons that you have listed and some life altering events, I have not completed the journey. I hope that your inspiration and drive will move me to the next level! May God continue to bless you!
