Permission to Pivot ™ 8 Week MasterMind for Mental Health Professionals

Permission to Pivot

An 8 MONTH LIVE Mental Health BUSINESS MasterMind Experience 

8 Months of business development training, personalized guidance, inspiration and professional mentoring

May 6 – December 2, 2024

Permission to Pivot™ is a concept I developed through my own journey of career evolution.

The ability to roll with the changes of life both, personal and professional…

The ability to know when and how to SHIFT, to PIVOT. . .

is EVERYTHING when it comes to creating and sustaining a successful career.

Especially in mental health! 

Let’s face it.

The professional field of mental health has CHANGED.

Private practice is not what it used to be since the pandemic.

AND there are so many MORE ways to expand and create new pathways for your career now.

But you have to give yourself PERMISSION to make the necessary changes to have the life and career you long for.

And once you give yourself that permission, you need TOOLS and SUPPORT for what to do next.

It’s one thing to create a vision for what you want.

And it’s an important step that can’t be skipped over.

But, you need specific tools and ongoing support for how to move forward

and create the life and career you want for yourself beyond the initial inspiration.


The professional arena of mental health has changed drastically since 2020.

Creating a healthy and successful career you can sustain requires

some new information and some new tools.

Join me along with a small group of child and family therapists who, like you, are growing their CAREERS

in mental health at a time when the mental health business realm is rapidly changing. 

Do you want to start a private practice or build on the one you already have?

Do you want to write and publish a scholarly chapter or entire book?

Would you like to create your own CE training course?

Maybe you want to explore how to succeed with a group practice in these changing times? 

Want to learn how to blend a dedicated self-care practice into the success of your business?

Want to create passive and recurring streams of income?

Do you want to feel confident that you are making a meaningful impact?

Consider giving yourself Permission to Pivotand sign up for 8 weeks of professional development training and mentoring focused on helping you dig in to grow your child and family therapy career in the face of all the changes to the field of mental health since that pandemic that brought all of us to new realities beginning in 2020.

Learn from someone who has a long track record of success in the business of mental health and someone who KNOWS how to PIVOT, SHIFT, and ROLL WITH THE CHANGES!

Here’s what alumni of past Master Mind groups are saying:

I highly recommend Lynn and this mastermind!! Lynn gave me the tools and support to build my Private Practice, and through her supportive community, I created another business that never would have been a possibility without her. You will NOT find another program- or mentor- quite like Lynn. This mastermind is bound to transform your business and your life.

Liz Gray


Lynn has created an amazing program and you will feel completely supported as you navigate from where you are to where you want to be in your private practice. There is no topic you can’t explore and if need be, Lynn goes out of her way to get you what you need. So grateful I signed up and I believe anyone who does so will be also!

Laura L. Langston


If you are an established clinician in your practice and have years of experience and are wondering if you could benefit from a mastermind class – the answer is definitely yes. I am a very well established long-term therapist with a full client schedule and yet I found immense benefit in joining this mastermind group. Very motivating and helps with accountability for the business side of the work.

Sandra Kerns


The mastermind experience definitely changed me and my practice. I am oficially a group practice, hired two associates last month and might be looking at a third one due to the high demand. Never in a million years thought i would be here. I updated my website following some of Lynn’s tips.

Julia Caruna


I can’t say enough about all the value it has offered. I feel like I have been able to gain so much clarity and direction as I set off on the adventure of building a private practice. Not only do you get individual guidance and attention, you also get to hear from colleagues and learn from their experiences. I’m so glad I made this investment.

Marissa Ezell


This mastermind has been an amazing experience and launched me into my own private practice with the right skills, mindset, and confidence I need. I would recommend it to anyone needing that extra push to get up and running!

Heather Kalopek


If you need clear direction with your business planning Lynn’s mastermind will help you move in whatever direction is your goal.  Her gentle encouragement is matched with realistic and practical feedback for you to really dig in and examine any barriers that may be in your way.  She goes above and beyond with sharing tons of information and providing individualized support in addition to a lively group format where you can learn from others just as much as Lynn provides direction and guidance.  If you are at all considering participating, take the jump, and invest in yourself as well as your business!  You won’t regret it even if you don’t accomplish all your plans while doing the mastermind you will leave with a great start to continue after the group comes to a close.  Lynn even offers further support after the  group ends with a variety of other services you can purchase and utilize.

This Mastermind Group has been very useful to me! I started in a place of panic and fear, completely overwhelmed with the thought of branching out on my own. Lynn gives useful exercises and has been very attentive to my progress. Like with anything, you get what you put into it. I decided to complete every exercise and I am happy to say that I am launching full force this week.

Meyleen Velasquez Aguilla


This group has been amazing. It has absolutely helped me clarify my goals and give me the tools I need to proceed toward my ideal practice with confidence. I feel that mentally I have made great strides. There is a LOT of support, no matter where you are in “getting there” (my timetable is different than some others), and has given me clarity to see how things CAN be, and tools to make it happen.
Sarah Stein-Wolf


It has been an AMAZING experience!!! I am feeling more authentic, driven and ready for GROWTH than ever before! Thank you Lynn Louise Wonders and fellow Mastermind peeps!
