Frequently Asked Questions
Why franchise a psychotherapy practice?
At Lifeologie, we've developed a unique franchising model that combines our business expertise, clinical know-how, and marketing experience to help clinicians build successful private practices that offer exceptional client care. Our proven and ready-made framework allows you to easily replicate our collaborative counseling practice and achieve your goals.
i'm already in private practice, why would i buy a lifeologie counseling franchise?
Congratulations, as an established therapist, you're already ahead of the game! You understand the challenges of running a private practice while providing quality care to your clients. At Lifeologie, we recognize the unique demands of the job, and our collaborative model offers the support you need to make your practice more enjoyable, profitable, and successful.
With our franchise model, you'll have access to marketing support that will help you attract new clients, while our collaborative approach provides a community of clinicians who can share ideas and insights. Additionally, we offer business support in the form of billing and accounting software, marketing systems, web design, and a nationally recognized brand.
I like being in private practice, how is owning a Lifeologie Counseling franchise different?
Great question, because we love private practice too! But after almost a decade in private practice, it dawned on our founder that there are only so many hours in a day AND you sell your time for the rest of your life. Why not invest in a collaborative counseling practice business that can provide more revenue than you can provide with your hourly rate alone? You’ll still be in private practice. Just not all by yourself.
I'm licensed but I'm not a clinical supervisor, can I still own a Lifeologie Counseling franchise?
Yes, you can certainly own a Lifeologie! However, to function as a clinical director, you will need to have a licensed clinical supervisor. We highly recommend that you obtain your supervision credentials as soon as you qualify.
I'm working on my clinical license, can i buy a Lifeologie Counseling franchise now?
We appreciate your enthusiasm and dedication to your career. However, it's important to note that regulations vary by state, and in most states, counselors must be fully licensed to own a practice in which they also work. We encourage you to check the regulations in your state and ensure that you meet the necessary requirements. If you're still in the process of accruing the necessary hours, we welcome you to contact us once you're fully licensed and ready to take the next step in your career.
Do I need to be a therapist to own a Lifeologie Counseling franchise?
You don't need to be a therapist to own a Lifeologie franchise. However, you will need a great clinical director and staff to establish and run the collaborative practice with the highest clinical and ethical standards. At Lifeologie, we'll teach you where to find them, how to hire them, and how to turn them into a world-class team, with ongoing assistance and support from our team.
It's important to note that state laws about clinical practice ownership can vary, and in some states like Texas and California, a different business structure may be required to own a Lifeologie franchise if you're not a clinician. But don't worry, we can help you navigate those requirements and ensure compliance with all applicable laws.
Where can I establish my Lifeologie Counseling practice?
