At the suggestion of my past Attending/mentor, I'm going to do a cash-only private practice on the side (starting with one day a week). He does the same in my town and charges $500 for intakes (granted he's a physician). He does p/t as well and says he consistently gets calls for new patients, whom he cannot take on (he's full). So I will see what comes my way. My expenses so far have been setting up my LLC ($500, to round up), listing myself in Psychology Today ($30/m), I have a pending email to change my malpractice insurance
(this will not go up by much, I think), I checked out a nice office I can rent for $15/hr, and I was recommended an EHR for $60/m. That all adds up to... not a lot. My skeptical brain cannot fathom that I could make a profit in my first month (if I even had just two-three patients), but that's what it seems like.
I'm not doing any outreach for now; I'm going to see if anyone contacts me this first week, and go from there.
