Today we’d like to introduce you to Morgan Francis.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I created Scottsdale Premier Counseling in 2017 after having my third child. Scottsdale Premier Counseling is a mental health private practice located in North Scottsdale. As a mother of three children (ages 6, 4, & 2) I needed to have flexibility in my schedule for my children. I was fortunate to find a location that is central to my children’s school and our home.

Has it been a smooth road?
Creating your own business is never a smooth process. I anticipated bumps and challenges with developing ethically compliant paperwork. I often consulted with seasoned providers. I am grateful to have such a supportive network.

However, the hardest challenge for any mental health provider is obtaining clients. You worry that they won’t find you or will choose to work with someone else based on a variety of factors (i.e., cost, likability, convenience, specialty, etc.). I had to let all that worry go. Instead, I chose to focus on building relationships with outside resources in order to obtain referrals.
