Private practice paperwork is only available through the Private Practice Coaching subscription.
Whether you have owned a practice for many years or are considering starting your own, paperwork that is up to date, HIPAA compliant, and protects your practice from ethical concerns is essential for working with clients.
Each set of paperwork has been compiled, developed, and continually revised since 2007 when Dr. Johnson began the Center for Counseling and Family Relationships. All documents included in the portfolio are sent electronically in PDF documents.
