Therapists do not go to graduate school to become business people. In fact, the concept of business may bring with it negative connotations. As therapists, we typically value compassion and serving which can be viewed in opposition to business success and financial gain. The Christian therapist who chooses to become a practice owner, however, must embrace the importance of being both a minister and a business owner. Often, this involves facing a steep learning curve, which begins most critically with mindset. The therapist’s altruistic vision to provide care to others will not be realized without a successful business model. As Christian counselors, we must strive for excellence in both counseling and business to effectively and sustainably serve those who God has entrusted to us.
