“What They Didn’t Teach You in Grad School: THE LCSW in Private Practice”

Did your graduate school program leave you lacking in the nuts and bolts of how to develop a private practice? Have you ever wondered if private practice might be a good fit for you and feel stumped as to where to start? You are invited to attend “What They Didn’t Teach You in Grad School: The LCSW In Private Practice” presentation by NASW and Sierra Dator, LCSW. Learn about pros and cons of being in private practice, 3 types of private practice settings, what you need to start and much more.
Sierra Dator is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with a private practice in Petaluma, CA. She has been working in social work for over 15 years specializing in the treatment of anxiety, depression, and life transitions with youth, adults, and families.
