Nurture Your Community

Dr. Chloe helps therapists grow

Therapists in private practice (or students planning to enter private practice) often express they wish they had more training in the "nuts and bolts" of private practice.  This includes everything from learning how to find clients who are appropriate for private practice, how to navigate delicate conversations around late cancellations or billing issues, and how to keep private practice sessions feeling fresh and engaging for both the client and the therapist.

Dr. Chloe's proven success in her own practice combined with her history of teaching throughout her career have prepared her to share with other therapists:

  • How to attract, book, and retain private practice clients

  • Therapy techniques and delivery styles that resonate with high functioning clients

  • How to build a sustainable private practice

The two workshops below have been well-received by junior and seasoned therapists alike.  Feel free to book either (or both!) workshops for your community, or request something customized-- Dr. Chloe loves hearing more about what therapists want!

  • Exactly how Dr. Chloe shares these techniques with high functioning clients. The language, examples, and manner in which techniques are shared are often pivotal components of successful and engaging treatment.

  • Examples of homework and engagement strategies around these techniques that will help keep clients stimulated as they progress with measurable skills (and keep them feeling eager for their next session with you!!!).

About Dr. Chloe

Dr. Chloe Carmichael, PhD is a licensed clinical psychologist and USA Today bestselling author. Her book, Nervous Energy: Harness the Power of Your Anxiety (Macmillan, 2021) was endorsed by the world-renowned Deepak Chopra and called a “game changer” by Jim McCann, the founder of 1-800-FLOWERS.

She holds a master’s degree and Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Long Island University and graduated Phi Beta Kappa, summa cum laude, with a bachelor’s degree and departmental honors in psychology from Columbia University in New York. Her practice in New York City serves high-functioning business executives, people in the arts, and everyday people seeking support with personal or professional goals.

She started her practice in 2012, just days after getting her license. Within a month, she shocked her employer and quit her day job because her private practice was equaling her corporate salary. From there, she grew very quickly, and now employs multiple other therapists to keep up with the volume of client inquiries. Dr. Chloe's Practice-Building Expertise has been featured by the American Psychological Association (APA) twice.

She is regularly featured in national TV media (ABC Nightline, Inside Edition, CBS, HLN, VH1, Fox News and more) and contributes regularly to U.S. World News, Forbes, Huffington Post, and other media.
