Healthcare Business Consulting with Dr. Katherine Knight

Solo Practice Consulting

Are you opening or considering opening your own private healthcare practice?  Or, do you have a solo practice set up, but you’re feeling bogged down by administrative work and marketing?

Perhaps you’ve always wondered about starting your own practice.


Or you’re in the midst of opening one and every step leaves you with more questions.

Maybe you’re even missing something you haven’t thought of yet.


If you’re like most people, you probably wish you had someone who’s “been there” to guide you.


That’s what Practice Management Consulting is all about. 


Get the answers you need to make your startup more effective, and once setup, make your day to day work more efficient.

What does a private practice consultant do?

As a business consultant, I come alongside and help you create the business you’ve always wished for, faster and more easily than doing it alone.


I provide practical action steps and accountability to help you: 

  • Clarify and implement your goals for your business
  • Uncover the most effective ways to drive revenue 
  • Plan and follow a budget
  • Clarify your target clientele
  • Set up the logistics such as location and organizational systems
  • Implement a profitable marketing and networking plan
  • Establish an effective online presence
  • Choose the right EMR system for your business
  • Overcome internal and external roadblocks  
  • And so much more


You want someone who’s already been successful as a healthcare practice owner to support and guide you, to offer their knowledge. Someone to meet you where you are and not tell you what you already know, but rather help you wade through the unfamiliar territory.


I have owned and managed successful mental health and medical practices in the past and have helped countless people through some of their most difficult challenges.


While I don’t do therapy with my consulting clients, my skill set extends beyond that of just having a business background. As a licensed clinical psychologist, I am able to better identify some of your personal roadblocks to success and provide simple, straightforward tips to help you make the most of your abilities and training.


I’m here to give you an ear to listen, a roadmap to guide you, and every resource to open and run your practice.


I have found a deep sense of fulfillment in opening my own practice and serving my clients in a more meaningful, personalized way. 


If you’re interested in pursuing the same, I want to help you.

Why do I need a private practice consultant?

Before you can even process the idea of opening your own business, you might be overwhelmed with all the factors that go into starting a private practice, such as how to: 

  • Put together an effective business plan
  • Register your business with the proper agencies
  • Choose an office location or layout that caters to your ideal clients
  • Set up a website
  • Build an online presence
  • ….and more!


Once your business starts to come together, you might then wonder how to: 

  • Bring in new patients
  • Market your business most effectively without breaking the bank
  • Stay up-to-date on ever-changing laws and regulations
  • Organize records and scheduling
  • Choose an EHR/EMR (electronic health/medical records) system
  • Handle client payments and bookkeeping
  • Decide on private or insurance payments
  • Expand or transition your practice.  Visit our Transitioning a Practice page for more info


You’re an expert in your profession, but you may not have received formal training on how to run a business. That’s where a private practice management consultant can help you.


The good news is: all facets of business can be taught.


While these various elements of business may sound overwhelming, a consultant can walk you through them systematically and help you get it right the first time. 


Don’t let the sense of overwhelm or unfamiliarity stop you from pursuing your goals!


This consulting service helps you bring your goal of opening a private practice to fruition with a sense of ease and conviction.

How much does private practice consulting cost?

As with your clients, your business “treatment plan” is never one-size-fits-all. The cost of consulting services varies depending on the level of consulting you need. Once we discuss the scope of consulting for your individual needs, I can give you a better idea of the investment.


It’s important to consider business consulting as an investment rather than an expense. 

The risks of starting a business on your own can be extremely costly. You might make mistakes, miss something important, start to feel overwhelmed, or get stuck. Virtually everyone makes some mistakes when they open a new business, but working with an experienced consultant can drastically reduce the number, severity, and overall cost of those mistakes.


Having an experienced healthcare business owner in your court can be invaluable in terms of the time, hassle, financial cost and overall stress you will save. Your consulting investment pays itself back rather quickly as you launch your business, start building up your clientele, and drive a healthy revenue.
