Individual practice, Team success…With Dr. Rachel Bédard


If you prefer working in solo practice, but also want to provide comprehensive services for your clients – especially those who have special needs due to diversity, social marginalization or other factors – consider collaborating as a team with other professionals outside of your practice. Not only does such a practice model benefit patients, it is also less isolating and lonely for clinicians. Moreover, it can be financially successful.

Dr. Rachel Bédard, a psychologist in private practice in Colorado, shares how she transformed her individual practice into a team event out of necessity, and now would never go back to working in isolation.

Learning Objectives:
Participants will be able to:

  • Describe how a mental health clinician in solo practice can serve clients who are marginalized and have special needs.
  • List the elements that promote team collaboration among varied professionals who are in independent practice
