About Me

A Rewarding Career

When I was a teenager, I couldn’t decide what career path I wanted to pursue after my high school graduation. While I wanted to earn a comfortable living, money wasn’t the only factor guiding my decision. I also desired to have a job that would allow me to help others in some way. If you’re searching for a rewarding career, consider counseling. Counselors have the opportunity to help people solve complicated problems on a daily basis. For instance, as a counselor, you might help a couple resolve marriage issues, aid a teenager battling an eating disorder, or assist an adult dealing with depression. I didn't end up becoming a counselor, but on this blog, I hope you will discover some of the most interesting aspects of being a counselor.

Is Your Office Manager Doing A Poor Job And Losing Money And The Office Is A Mess? 3 Things You Need To Do

by Marie Reid

If you feel that the management and administrative tasks at your therapy office aren't as efficient as they could be, and that the person you're paying to do the job isn't getting it done, it may be time to look for someone else or get new training for the management. There are many training programs that help the managers develop professionally and personally, so they can be more effective on a daily basis.

There are many other things that can help with keeping the office organized as well. Consider the following options.

Management Training

Find a management training program for your managerial staff so they can increase their productivity and connection with the staff. There are many different things to consider getting training with, like the following:

  • Team building
  • Administrative efficiency
  • Leadership enhancement

The management training should help the managers get along with the employees and be better at organizing and managing office work.

Digital Forms

If you have too many papers lost, floating around the office or a mess, go to digital work forms. There are many advantages to using digital forms, like these:

  • Have patients input information on tablets and avoid sloppy handwriting
  • Store all documents online on one single server in files
  • The staff can check off reports and fill out hourly billing information easily
  • All billing is submitted electronically without errors

All of these digital forms can make it easy for management and administration to pull files and gather information for office billing and finances.

Accounting Assistance

If you worry you could be facing financial issues because your management isn't handling the accounting correctly, or that the accounting isn't being done efficiently, it's time to get some accounting assistance. Find an accounting professional that can go through your accounts, billing, and finances to see where you're struggling and to get you back on track fast.

If you have trusted an office manager that hasn't been doing their job correctly, it may be time to get rid of the leader. If you can't train them to be a better office professional and a more efficient worker, you don't want to put your business in jeopardy any longer. There are a lot of different issues you have to be concerned about if you want to keep your mental health practice in business and seeing patients, so don't ignore the issues and consider all of the options to get organized and productive.
