When I first reached out to Amy, I felt overwhelmed by the thought of networking and marketing my practice. I knew I had to get the word out about my relatively new practice, but I had difficulty knowing what would be most effective. Amy Hooper was such a joy and pleasure to work with. She provided advice and guidance in practical ways. She helped me prioritize strategies to be most effective in my outreach efforts and what ways would reap short-term and long-term benefits. She helped me focus my online marketing as well as community networking and relationship-building. She helped me come up with tangible tasks as well as long-term goals. With finite time and resources, she helped me maximize my efforts. Most importantly, she provided the encouragement and support that I needed. After meeting just two times with her, I filled my practice in a matter of 2 weeks. Her advice and her encouragement were exactly what I needed to get my practice from small to bustling.

I started seeing Amy to get some guidance in starting my private practice. I must admit I was a bit hesitant about seeing a private practice coach and thought I might be able to do everything on my own. Amy was so warm and friendly, I was immediately put at ease after our first session.I felt so supported. Amy has been extremely helpful throughout the whole process everything from risk management to online marketing. Amy helped me to make sure I had all the essentials and also has been instrumental in helping me get my practice off the ground.

Amy was incredibly helpful as I was getting started in private practice. She had great advice on various topics from marketing to managing finances. It was great to be able to attend her coaching group sessions and have other individuals ask questions that I didn’t even think of. It was also nice to be able to see her individually to have her help me with specific marketing content for my business. In working with Amy, I started to feel more confident in myself and my business. Soon after meeting with her, the phones started ringing more often. Amy is the best. She’s friendly, kind, and very approachable. You can tell she is passionate about helping people grow their business. I’d highly recommend her to anyone.
I can personally and strongly recommend Amy Hooper’s monthly workshop series. Amy’s workshop has also been a godsend for me. I’ve learned a tremendous number of specific strategies and approaches that will provide momentum for my practice for years to come. Amy is approachable, wise and extremely generous with her experience and guidance. She listens attentively and thoughtfully to each of her participants, always going beyond her prepared agenda to offer specifically tailored advice. With kindness and clarity, she keeps her participants moving forward from month to month, celebrating their accomplishments and identifying various ways to overcome challenges. Participating in Amy’s workshop means meeting colleagues and benefiting from mutual support and connection. How fortunate we are to have these wonderful people in our backyard, ready and willing to help us out! 🙂
I want you to know that I think about the session I had with you VERY often! Probably every month I remember (and utilize!) the lessons you offered, advice and more importantly, sources of inspiration that you helped me see and feel. It was a real turning point for me in beginning my private practice, and I’ve now been in practice for 1 year! It has been the most amazing year and I am so so lucky to have been able to create exactly the practice of my dreams. I’m working in my practice part-time (and still doing my day job full-time) but I’m headed towards a full time private practice in the next 6 months. Thank you for your incredible support, generosity and smarts!
You were a source of inspiration and encouragement like I’ve not really experienced in the area and your welcoming smile and determination and drive motivated me to keep plugging away at my goals despite set-backs. So, I thank you for that, Amy.
I’ve been attending Amy Hooper’s Professional Development Group for close to two years. It meets monthly and has helped me tremendously to transition my private practice from PA to MD and improve my ability to manage the “business aspects” of my practice. I highly recommend Amy’s group.
