"This event was packed full of practical and valuable  information that both my undergrad and grad courses neglected. I would highly recommend this event to anyone who is considering having their own practice, starting a business or a non-profit!"



Winden Rowe MS, LPC

Private Practice While Pre-Licensed

Immediately after completing her graduate program in June 2015, Winden started her private practice. When compared with the financial prospects of agency work, Winden knew that private practice was the only way she could sustainably meet the financial needs of her family.

She loved the trauma counseling program that she attended at Jefferson University, and the only problem she had with it was that private practice was never mentioned, or was training offered, even though it was a career that so many clinicians (with proper supervision) were engaging in after graduation. That's why she's decided to change the conversation.

Trial and Error to Build a Practice

Winden had to figure out private practice the hard way, learning how to run her business step-by-step by trial and error. 

After a couple months of building a caseload part-time while also teaching at Jefferson, momentum started to build and she was able to commit to her practice full-time while many in her graduate cohort were astounded. 

The truth is, this doesn't have to be an irregular occurrence, and many more clinicians can, and Winden believes should be learning about private practice and taking the first step if they desire. The country needs more empowered clinicians now more than ever. 

Directing the Center For Change

Taking every opportunity that presented itself over the past several years, Winden has continued to build until the current point where she now has a completely packed caseload, a very healthy revenue line, and serves as the director for the Center for Change in Kennet Square, Pennsylvania, where several health and wellness professionals in her community operate together. 

A Guiding Philosophy

The Center for Change at Kennet Square has one guiding philosophy: we are not competitors, but colleagues, and with every clinician and professional added, we meet more of the local unmet community demand for health services. More is better. 

This philosophy is also at the center of Build Your Practice. We strongly believe that more clinicians building successful private practices is good for clinicians and for communities. That all starts from learning what private practice actually entails and taking the first step. 

Griffin Mallas, MS

Grad School, Entrepreneurship, and Division 1 Soccer

While at Drexel University, Griffin pursued a degree in psychology while playing for the varsity soccer team. In his final year, he captained the team and completed several research studies, including his thesis, on professional soccer teams around the world. 

Griffin always had a passion for business, and when he realized his potential for entrepreneurship, Griffin started an ecommerce business part-time, selling products online and learning the secrets to running a successful business leveraging the internet. 

Clinical Work and Business

Griffin took several clinical classes during his final year of graduate school and was very surprised by the lack of business knowledge of many of the clinicians around him. 

 Forming Build Your Practice

Griffin and Winden met on Southwest Flight #1753 and decided to change the conversation in graduate school. Build Your Practice was founded on the question asked in the first meeting, "why is it that graduate students learn so many incredible skills, but don't learn how to apply them in a private practice?"

Increasingly, clinicians are choosing to explore what it means to build something of their own after graduation. Whether it's their full focus, or a side source of income to increase their hours and financial security, they should be prepared and know what it takes to succeed. 

Founded on Southwest Flight #1753

From "elbow buddies" to colleagues on a mission.

Mission Driven

Our mission at Build Your Practice is to empower every clinician in the country to become a competent and successful business person.

We believe that private practice work is a key facet of fixing a broken healthcare system and allowing clinicians to get paid fairly for the important work they do. 

We work to achieve that mission every day by:

1) educating graduate students about the necessary steps to prepare for private practice

2) offering individualized support to clinicians as they build a practice

3) providing a blueprint by which successful clinicians can expand their practice to make a larger impact on their community

Kelsey Galer, RMHC in private practice

"Build Your Practice gave me an abundance of knowledge and step by step guidance on how to grow my business. I am so grateful to Griffin and Winden for helping me identify what I needed to work on to establish a lucrative practice. Thank you!"
