The concept of “niching down” in your private practice is one we frequently discuss on STC. With that discussion come the questions about being specific enough---or maybe too specific. Is there such a thing? Today’s conversation is with someone who has wisdom to share from her own practice journey, which includes building a practice focused on treating self-harm in teens.
