Sarah Rivera

Private Practice Support for the Business Owner

Hi My name is Sarah Rivera. I help mental health professionals become confident business owners in private practice. I offer training programs and coaching consults for mental health professionals either wanting to launch their private practice or who are struggling in their first year. Get rid of the DIY mindset and receive guidance from someone who has been where you are. Find support during your private practice journey from launch to growth.

The mission of The Counselor’s Mentor is two fold. The first is to guide and encourage counselors through each step of their professional career, from grad school to private practice. This site is for mental health professionals needing mentor for the “in between” stage. Going from student to employee can be tough; as can be the transition from non-profit to private practice. I’m here to guide on the “how to” of how to get to 6 figures and stay there. 

My second goal is to reach, teach and inspire the community with mental health support and training. The tips are straight from me, Sarah Rivera, a mental health group practice owner and supervisor who has a zest to inspire growth in any person. The Mentor’s mission is to prompt professional development through supervision, consultation, community support, speaking engagements, and support to launch a private practice.


"Very energetic and well thought out professional."

SO. MANY. THINGS. Where do I even start? Sarah needs to have a podcast or at least be interviewed on someone’s podcast. She is amazing!

I liked that she interacted with us, it wasn’t just a lecture it was an open conversation.

"I know I can count on her for insight and support"

As I prepared to open up my own private practice, Sarah was incredibly helpful in easing my fears (I HAD MANY). She was able to walk me through some of the most stressful parts in detail, such as the financial considerations, keeping the business, secure, and what to keep in mind when marketing the business. She is helpful in and out of the consultation meetings.
