Here's My Story

I'm Alison Maratos

I’m a therapist who has worked in the community and in private practice over the span of my career. When I worked in the community, I had to learn how to clearly and efficiently document countless sessions, assessments and case plans and ensure that my records would stand up in Court. When I moved into private practice I didn’t have agency audits to keep me in check with my notes, so I struggled to keep up with the parts of the job that my ADHD brain avoids. I beat myself up over when I worried I had dropped the ball and I felt constantly overwhelmed and anxious about "doing it right".

Fast forward to today. I have learned some hacks that help me feel more in control of my administrative practices and running the business of my practice while maintaining happy clients. Don’t get me wrong. Some days are better than others, but now I have the tools to help me stress less and relax more at the end of a clinical day. I promise you, it IS possible to tick all of the boxes of pratice admin and biz without feeling overwhelmed and burnt out.

Here's what your colleagues say about working with me...

"I have always had a strong vision about my future as a professional helper but felt overwhelmed by the thought of starting a private practice. After using Alison's tools, I was able to create a viable plan that left me feeling confident about my decision to pursue this lifelong dream. Alison was a phenomenal facilitator with broad knowledge, passion, and real-life examples that resonated with my values and goals. I look forward to continuing to work with her going forward."

-Jamie McIntyre, MSW RSW

"I was so excited to take Alison's private practice workshop and it did not disappoint. I left feeling inspired and motivated to start my own private practice. The course content was interesting and Alison is an extremely engaging presenter. Two years later, I have my own private practice treating the clients I love and I was able to quit my agency job and do this full time"

- Julie Lounsbury, MSW RSW
