I started the group knowing it’d be awhile before I took the plunge. I wanted to prepare and be ready, and that is what this group did for me. I am on the brink of seeing my first private practice clients and feel confident about my ducks being in a row and excited for this next step in my career. Allison is a rock star motivator and guru of making happen.”

“Allison Puryear inspired me to take my practice to the next level. I already felt comfortable with marketing and private practice logistics, but Allison taught me how having healthy boundaries and business practices can significantly increase my bottom line. And now that I’m preparing for motherhood, I’ll be leaning on her wisdom and experience because I know she’s able to balance it all so beautifully. I think of Allison as an example of what’s possible.”

Allison has been very helpful in helping me identify my hangups and challenge me to pursue my dreams for my private practice. I’ve done other business consulting before, but seriously, this has been the most helpful! I feel that my practice is now a more true reflection of my passion to help people and of me. I continue to feel inspired as I build dream practice. Allison is an awesome person and mentor to learn from!”

“Allison is a breath of fresh air! She provided me with clarity and helped me write the “permission slips” to building my successful private practice, when I was struggling to believe that I could create the type of practice I wanted.Allison has a warm personality and when I am consulting with her, she reminds me of my worth as a professional and person. I can not recommend Allison enough for either the new or seasoned practitioner,who needs guidance in creating their vision.”

“For years in private practice I thought I needed to convey a sort of “generic professional image” so that the majority of clients visiting my website would feel welcome.  Through participating in the Abundance Practice-Building Group with Allison, I have gained a sense of permission to more fully and confidently express my authentic self in the professional realm.  As someone who is deeply passionate about my work and forming relationships with clients, unleashing this “authentically me” voice has been a gift both on the professional and personal level.”

“I was a little bit reluctant (actually a lot reluctant) to sign up for the Abundance Practice-Building Group… and very glad I had some external encouragement to do this or else I wouldn’t be moving in the professional direction I am now.  I’ve gained a great deal of support not only from Allison but also my fellow groupmates. What a wealth of knowledge everyone had to share! When I started the class I had no space to practice in and no clients of my own. I actually had no real timeline to make the jump – and I did it way faster than I thought I would! I definitely recommend Abundance Practice-Building to people who need to find some additional courage to leap out on their own. You will most certainly find the support and inspiration you’re looking for! “


“When I started my private practice I was watching every penny, and I just wasn’t sure it would be worth my time, effort, and money to take Allison’s class. But I thought, “You are going to be figuring out all these pieces right now anyway, pieces like legalities, website, getting on insurance panels and such. You can do it alone with lots of fits, stops, and starts or you can get some help.” Well, I would not call Allison’s help, “some help”, I would call it spot-on help! Allison was born for this. She’s got the empathy and humanity of a superb therapist, plus she’s got the business savvy, tech head and enthusiasm to cover all the parts of building a practice. –Thank you, Allison! You made the transition from agency work to having my own practice fun and doable! Thanks so much!”

She balances her incredible knowledge with an authenticity that makes you instantly comfortable. After joining the Abundance Practice-Building Group, I feel much more confident in the business aspect of my practice and gained a sense of interconnection within my community. The results are not just personally rewarding either, my practice has seen a significant jump in new clients since working with her, as well. Abundance Practice-Building doesn’t just crack a door for you…it throws it wide open!”

-Chris Rinaldi, RMT

Screen Shot 2015-07-16 at 5.16.33 PM“One of the most important take aways from my experience in the Abundance Practice-Building Group was the importance of and ease of networking!  I realized that I was making networking much scarier and more difficult than it actually is–it’s just building relationships, connecting, and creating community, which I already love to do!  Prior to Allison’s group, I thought that networking meant selling myself and my business, which created a big barrier for me and when I had done it previously, I hadn’t gotten good results because I wasn’t showing up authentically!  The Abundance Practice-Building Group completely shifted my experience around networking and this is now my primary source of referrals!”
