The National Register of Health Service Psychologists’ Professional Practice Builder: Knowledge & Skills to Thrive in Private Practice will provide attendees with knowledge, confidence, and specific advice for starting a private practice as a health service psychologist (HSP). For many HSPs, opportunities to learn about starting a private practice are limited during graduate school, internship, and postdoctoral training. The National Register aims to change the status quo by offering the course you never had on running your private practice. Through this free, ongoing series of webinars, listeners will gain targeted tools to go from building to running to thriving in private practice.

You’ll learn about what tax forms you’ll need, when and how much to pay, how to avoid penalties and fines, and how to maximize your tax deductions. This presentation does not provide specific or formal tax advice and should not be used in place of personalized information from a tax specialist.
Seattle local Andrew Riesen, previously an internal incubator inside PwC, co-founded Heard in 2019 with Victoria Li. “Every hour that a therapist spends wrangling finances is an hour they’re not making money or doing work that fulfills and energizes them.” Heard aims to serve as the financial back end for therapists.
