Opportunities for private practice / admin supports!

Interested in starting a private practice? Running your own practice but getting burned out or feeling lonely / isolated? Don’t know where to turn or getting overwhelmed by your own admin duties?

Plumeria Counseling Center allows you to start (or continue) your private practice with all the supports you need to be successful:
- billing
- scheduling
- full time practice manager allowing for back up while you are on vacation or leave
- office space on demand or to your preferred schedule (7 days a week)
- EHR included
- monthly peer consultation groups
- on demand consultation with clinical director
- community of diverse therapist professionals and vast referral network for various levels of care
- work what you wish - no min hours required - in person or virtual or both
*our services are to help you build your therapy practice. You get your own referrals and we provide the admin to reduce time spent on admin and billing tasks. We are a locally and privately owned business in operation under current ownership since 2016, in the community since 2008.

All this for as low as $35 per session hour - you charge your own preferred rates! (Compare this with what you are paying now for office space, billing, virtual assistance, EHR, time spent doing this yourself, etc).

We also work with insurance if that’s your jam - but not required. Minimum hours per week are only for working with insurance.

Contact me directly if you’d like to work with us, or apply via our website https://www.plumeriacounseling.com/for-therapists-work-at-plumeria/

Here is a testimonial: “I am a fully licensed clinical social worker at Plumeria and have been since 2020. I have seen my client base increase substantially since joining. Prior to joining Plumeria, I ran my business as a solo practitioner and this was challenging. To scale up, I needed to out source my administrative tasks. This required trust and the understanding of my own financial resources.

Plumeria is a place that a newly licensed therapist can begin a successful practice. Seasoned therapists benefit as well as they can focus on delivering high quality counseling without the burden of administrative functions therefore generating more billable hours.”

Caring for aging parents is one of the most stressful life events we can experience- and it can go on for years. What happens when you don’t even live in the same state as the people you are caring for?

Here's your go-to guide to keeping them safe while you hold on to your sanity.

So true. Have a reason to come to therapy please. Something that you want to improve or change - in yourself or how you react to things (not about what you want to change in others!). We can help you so much more when you are clear about what you need help with.

“As a therapist, I often tend to feel stuck with clients who share this as a primary motivation, without any specific insight into why or how therapy might help them,” Madeleine Campbell, a therapist working in Brooklyn, told me via email. “A client’s experience with therapy is the result of what they put into it. If a client doesn’t have any specific goals or intentions for our time working together, it can be hard to know how to make progress.”

The recent focus on therapy as a cure-all overlooks that there are other ways to heal.

This so such a great article. Yes therapy helps. But finding the right therapist for YOU is key. Also finding a therapist skilled in the right modality for your particular needs. And still…you have to actually do the work OUTSIDE of sessions for therapy to work. JUST ‘talking to someone’ is only going to effect the degree of change that you are willing to implement for yourself.

Therapy acts as a reflective process. To help you become conscious of your own unconscious motivations. To help you understand why you do the things you do. To shed light on the darkness. But at the end of the day this is YOUR one beautiful life, and YOU are the one you’ve been waiting for. ❤️💕🔥

Research shows that counseling delivers great benefits to many people. But it’s hard to say exactly what that means for you.

There is no formula for grief. There is no ‘normal’ cycle for grief. Grief and loss is part of our human condition. Learning to live again after profound loss is hard, existential work.

I have mixed feelings about this new diagnosis of ‘Prolonged grief.’ On one hand it pathologizes and will try to medicate an essential aspect of the human experience. On the other hand it allows for insurance reimbursement and will allow many more people to seek affordable therapy for coping with loss.

What does therapy look like for grief? Listening, validation, coping, bearing witness to the incredible, beautiful, resilience (and pain) of the human spirit. Learning to listen to what your body and feelings are telling you. What happens in the therapy room will not change - and always there is not a ‘pill’ to help this. Let’s stop medicalizing and pathologizing simply being human. Sometimes that involves pain - and with pain also comes growth and transformation. ❤️🙏🏻🔥

This is from our friends at MindLight and wanted to share ❤️💥🙏🏻

A message this morning in light of the news about the Ukraine. We have love and leadership.

1. We know that we humans are still working out our animal natures on each other: all of our unconscious drivers for survival. This can be distorted by our incredible and spiritual desire for expansion and to know our limits and to know ourselves. These two unintegrated aspects of self create wage gaps, dominance and oppression, waste, depression and anxiety, authoritarian brutality, and war. And we are working it out. Use what you have learned with us to help you understand and have compassion for the individuals and the whole. As we know from the work we do at Mindlight: compassion, friendliness, acceptance and love, this is what heals.

2. In the words of one of our trainers, Fatima Mann, "Stay in your lane". What is your work? The work that radiates from your heart and is supported by your own alignment, alignment with your values, alignment with your vision, your dreams, alignment with what brings you joy, and alignment with your deepest sense of what is true and holy. Act from here not as a reaction to what you think is being created outside of you.

3. You can take media breaks. You can leave discussions. You can opt out of online conversations and block. You can also participate with clarity and sovereignty. You can find your inner safety, open your eyes and give all you see your unconditional love. What is most important is that you be responsible for your creative power. Be responsible for your imagination, your thoughts, your feelings, the stories you tell, and all that you pollinate the air with.

With love,
Lillian Moore

What is the corrective emotional experience that the client is subconsciously yearning for? 2. Who am I showing up as subconsciously for the client? Or, what dynamic or pattern fro...

“If you can deal and feel, then you can heal. So that's how you can have empathy, not only for someone else, but for yourself first, because anger is a secondary emotion. But we go to it because it feels more powerful than sadness.”

Hi all - here is a great resource on a parenting class facilitated by our esteemed colleague Katie Malinski LCSW!

https://parenthoodunderstood.com/store/arc-of-the-tantrum-parenting-class/

From Katie: The class is behavior-focused (and of course it's relational neurobiology based) and very concrete. I've led it before with great success--previous attendees included: therapists, teachers, laypeople, and their kiddos have ranged from 'run-of-the-mill-toddler-problems' to kiddos with diagnosed behavioral disorders. The info really is useful for any parent.

There’s a TON of science about how brains work that can help you feel confident and effective in dealing with difficult behavior.

"You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. That's a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That's the only thing you should be trying to control."

Over half of women surveyed in a 2021 CNBC and SurveyMonkey poll said their mental health at work was suffering to the point of burnout.

For women of color, the numbers are worse. Black women experience accelerated “biological aging” in response to repeatedly encountering stress. While 9.8 million working mothers in America experience workplace burnout, it’s more pronounced for Black, Latina and Asian mothers, according to the largest study on working parents to date.

“Our bodies are our friends — not just trays to carry around our heads. We register the world through our senses.

In the final act, we can let go of so many things. Climbing and striving, for example. Body shaming, for another. Most of us have come to terms with gravity, as manifested in our somewhat altered body shapes.

We must center pleasure: It is our freedom. Always available, our sensory reality locates us. It is how we honor the prodigious gift of being alive.”
