About TPI

What we do

First, we listen. We listen to how you visualize your ideal practice – whether you’re just starting out or if you have several years of experience. What challenges do you face in terms of managed care, career transitions, administrative and staffing issues, office relocation and work-life balance? Consult with us to design and implement a customized plan to help you get on course.

How we do it

Our products and services are delivered via annual or monthly membership subscription. For a single fee, you can phone into our Q&A conference calls, (scheduled up to 10 hours per month) and get your questions answered on the spot. As a member, you have unlimited access to our growing library of exclusive recorded audio conversations with experts, how-to articles, slideshows and other resources related to practice development. Plus, you get discounts on our products and workshops.

Who we are

TPI was founded by four psychologists, each with 30+ years of diverse experience. Collectively we have managed group and individual practices, specialized in various niches and specialties, and have expertise in the use of technology, marketing, ethics and practice administration and growth. We have helped many, many colleagues build thriving practices, and look forward to helping you do the same.
