Welcome to the first episode in the latest beginner practice series! Over the next several weeks, business episodes will largely focus on the beginning stages of practice. Today, I’m talking through the steps and mindset needed to actually start your practice.

Private practice has afforded me incredible flexibility and growth opportunities over the past 12 years, and I would love to support you in your own journey!

About Dr. Jeremy Sharp

I’m a licensed psychologist and Clinical Director at the Colorado Center for Assessment & Counseling, a private practice that I founded in 2009 and grew to include 12 licensed clinicians, three clinicians in training, and a full administrative staff. I earned my undergraduate degree in Experimental Psychology from the University of South Carolina before getting my Master’s and PhD in Counseling Psychology from Colorado State University. These days, I specialize in psychological and neuropsychological evaluation with kids and adolescents.

As the host of the Testing Psychologist Podcast, I provide private practice consulting for psychologists and other mental health professionals who want to start or grow psychological testing services in their practices. I live in Fort Collins, Colorado with my wife (also a therapist) and two young kids.

  1. Hi Dr. Sharp –

    I am a reaching out as I am a first year doctoral student in a counseling psychology PhD program. I have quickly learned that I only want to do psychological assessment (either pre-employment screening/fitness for duty evaluations, or, forensics), and not academia. However, I am at a cross roads where I worry about the debt I will incur (I am projecting I will be 235-250k in debt by the end of the program). I was wondering if I could consult with you via email about the financial realities of finishing the program, or pursuing another opportunity that I am presented with. I am looking forward to hearing back from you, and thank you.

  2. Hello,
    I greatly enjoy your podcasts. You had a sponsor that had developed a pediatric trauma questionnaire. Would you be able to share this information again? I cannot remember who it was . I truly appreciate your help with this.
    Have a wonderful day,
