Owner of Center for Sexual Health & Wellness, LLC

I was apart of the original launch of UPP and can honestly say it helped me tremendously. I was contracting in someone else's practice at the time and knew that what they were doing wasn't right and that it wasn't the best fit for me. Lisa helped me to formulate a plan and not only exit that practice, but launch my own. Today I still get fed from the UPP program, as you get LIFETIME access(!!) and I continue to grow and expand my practice with the expertise of someone who has not only been there, but continues to show others how to get there. If you're looking to learn how to grow, scale and maintain a successful private practice.... look no further UPP is it!!!

It has been a pleasure working with Kay and you in the University of Private Practice. UPP has been a tremendous blessing as I transition to having a successful part-time private practice. The courses and the information that is presented is easy to follow. I like the access of the Facebook to be able to ask questions and receive feedback regarding ideas. Both Kay and Lisa share a wealth of information and have the best subject experts on various topics. I love the personal and professional development that both of these clinician's bring to UPP. Kay and Lisa both have a heart's desire to serve and want to see as many clinicians of color excel in their respective practices.

UPP has been an amazing value and experience because Lisa and Kim are committed to helping members build successful private practices. In UPP you are actually receiving wisdom, support and guidance from private practice owners who have achieved tremendous business success. I am grateful for the classes and information I have received in UPP to help me grow my business, and achieve the success I desire.

I have found that having Lisa as a mentor has been positively amazing and  impactful in my professional life. I know she is extremely busy, but she makes time to answer all of  my questions and also alleviate my concerns when I’m feeling overwhelmed! Not to mention I find her Live educational feeds whether she has a guest or not educational and impactful for my practice. I find her to be a true mentor!

Frequently Asked Questions

The membership site will contain all of the information necessary to build, grow, and diversify your practice. Most Facebook groups are well intended, but the amount of incorrect information can lead to massive and sometimes costly mistakes. We will provide the correct information. If there's something we don't know, we will find an expert who does. The best part about this membership forum is that we can also customize classes for your learning. Let us know your specific needs.

For as long as you're a member! This only works if you work. We ask that you make a six-month commitment. New content will be added often.

There's something synergistic that happens when working in a small group with others. The shared accountability, support, the intense focus can help you to accelerate your goals. You'll be paired with others who have similar goals. Each week you'll meet with your mastermind coach. You decide what your goals are and we provide the guidance and assignments. Please keep in mind this is for those who are serious about rapid growth.

At least monthly. If there's something you need training on, let us know.

Welcome back!  Make sure you log in if you haven't already, and then visit the member dashboard for everything you need.
