Everything You Need to Start a Successful Private Practice
Meet Kelley Stevens
Creator of The Private Practice Roadmap
I teach therapists how to build a successful, cash-pay private practice. Opening a six-figure private practice shouldn’t be complicated. That’s why I equip my clients with simple strategies and step-by-step guides.
I am an LMFT in Santa Barbara, CA with over a decade of experience in mental health and business development. I began my career as the marketing director of a large outpatient program in Los Angeles. After helping that business grow, I opened my own six figure private practice.
Life has a way of throwing us curve balls… so after five years in private practice, I moved and opened two more successful practices in new cities! I’m also an adjunct professor at Pepperdine University and Antioch University.
Now, I call Santa Barbara home. In my off time, I love playing with my toddler and spending time with my husband.
