About the Teacher

Anne Rice, LPC, LMHC, CPCS

My name is Anne Rice and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Counselor supervisor in Georgia and a Licensed Mental health Counselor in New York. I opened my private practice in Atlanta in 2017. When I started, I had two clients for a few months and spent a lot of time panicking and a lot of late nights trying to figure out the business side of running a practice. Fast forward to today where I have a full private pay practice that has expanded to a group practice. I made a lot of mistakes on the way and wasted a lot of money trying to figure out how to get my practice going. My passion is to help therapists avoid a lot of wasted time and money on their private practice journeys. I received my undergraduate degree in Psychology from Princeton University and my graduate degree in Counseling Psychology from Boston College.
