Have you heard of Alma?

As you may know, I have a variety of resources available to therapists who want to bill insurance in their private practice. I have a comprehensive membership to teach you how to build on your own. But I also refer mental health practitioners to companies like Alma who can do your billing for you if you don't want to hire billers or do it on your own. If this sounds like the kind of support you need in your insurance-based private practice, consider joining Alma to get the tools and support you need to manage and grow your private practice, accept insurance and focus on what matters most delivering high-quality care to your clients.
