Help your patients…and yourself.

As a physical therapist, are you hitting a wall and feeling limited in your work?

You became a Physical Therapist so you could help people.

We all had…

  • Dreams and visions for our careers
  • Goals we wanted to achieve
  • Life altering experiences that led us to physical therapy

No matter how you got here, at some point, we all get to this place…

  • “I don’t care if I make less.”
  • “I don’t care if I get less respect.”
  • “I want to help people when no one else can.”
Have you heard yourself say these words before?

The thing is…

  • Being a PT is about love over money.
  • It’s about helping other people.
  • And, it’s about putting the satisfaction of your patients above your own.
What if you could be that PT that helped your patients AND earned more?

But, right now you feel like:

  • You are being held back by restrictions put in place by health systems and large practices?
  • You can’t treat your patients the way you know they deserve?
  • You don’t have control over your treatments so you know patients are ALWAYS treated right, no matter how long it takes?
  • You are on the verge of burnout from seeing so many patients per day?
  • You are putting in so much work but not seeing the paycheck you need?
And what if you could do all this and earn the paycheck you know deep down you richly deserve?

As PTs, we help our patients with what others in the medical field may consider daunting odds.

We know better…

What if it was possible to have the best of both worlds….IT IS.
Introducing the …

A comprehensive coaching program that details exactly what to do to build a thriving Cash-Based Physical Therapy Practice…all your own. Whether you want to start a “side hustle” or go all in!

Hi. I’m Dr. Karen Litzy, PT, DPT

I’m a physical therapist…
And, I’m an entrepreneur.

Ten years ago I found a better way to give my patients the treatment time they deserved.

At the same time, I found greater freedom in both my work and personal life.

How’d that happen? I launched my own private pay concierge practice in the heart of New York City!

It’s been incredibly fulfilling, but it wasn’t easy. Which is why my mission is to give you all of the tools I wish I had!

Perhaps my thoughts back then sound familiar to you right now:
  • I’m not sure I’m ready for this.
  • It’s going to take me too long.
  • Where should I start?
  • Do I have the time and know how for this?
  • How am I going to get patients?
  • I really don’t feel comfortable putting myself out there.
  • There’s so much I don’t know.
  • I don’t even know what I don’t know!
  • Isn’t there a ton of legal stuff I need to know?
  • Maybe I should do this next year instead…
  • What if it doesn’t work?
 I felt all those things.

At the same time I couldn’t continue seeing 14+ patients per day.

Deep down, I just knew. I was ready for a change.

 Do you find yourself wanting more freedom…

  • Freedom of practice…
  • Freedom from the daily grind.
  • Freedom from burnout.

While it doesn’t happen without work, the process to go from where you are today to where you could be doesn’t have to be as elusive as it feels. Which is why I created the…..

This is for you if you are…

  • Ready to make the commitment to yourself, clients, and communities to create something special.
  • Ready to put in the time and resources to create a business that is uniquely you!
  • Looking for all the business resources in one place so you don’t have to waste your time Googling everything.
  • Need accountability so you get sh*t done.
  • Ready to become a physical therapy entrepreneur in the cash based or private pay physical therapy world.

As a PT, I want to help. It’s in my blood. I know this works…because I’ve done it! But hey….you may not know me. So here’s what others have to say!

“Karen Litzy was one of the first cash-based private practice owners I discovered when I was searching for guidance on how to open Invigorate. At that time, cash-based practices were incredibly rare so I soaked up everything Karen put out there and tried to put it all together in a way that made sense. If this course had been out there when I first started, it would have saved a ton of energy, frustration, and time. Karen’s been incredibly helpful and supportive while I’ve grown my practice and I have no doubt she’ll be just as invested in yours!”

Sarah Grafelman King, PT, DPT

Owner, Invigorate Physical Therapy and Wellness

"When I was first founding my private practice in New York City, I didn't know where to start, but I knew exactly who to ask. Karen Litzy has been paving the way in private practice for years, and after attending her inaugural Women In PT Summit, I reached out for some tips on getting started. Karen generously set up a phone call and walked me through the details and timeline of starting my own company, including sharing her business contacts with me. She has helped me promote my business and continues to be a leader and mentor to me and so many others. I would have been lost without her guidance.”

Dr. Abby Bales, PT, DPT, CSCS

Founder, Reform Physical Therapy, NYC

In four months, where will you be?

Look, I get it. Going off on your own is scary. 

And, when you have something in front of you that’s scary, what happens? You put it off. “I’ll get to it later,” you say. Then you blink and six months have passed. 

Trust me. It doesn’t get easier in six months. I know because this is what happened to me! Before I launched my own PT practice 10 years ago, I had spent years wanting to do it.

But, here’s the thing. Every day you put it off…

  • It’s another day seeing 10, 15, 20 patients.
  • It’s another day not being able to give patients the time they deserve.
  • It’s another day further from being paid what you deserve. 

And, from my own experience I know it’s actually more than that. Once you make the commitment to yourself…once you take action and just start…the momentum carries you.

I started something special and created a practice—and a life—that I love.

 Was it easy? No.

 That’s why I created the Strictly Business Coaching Program…so PTs can blaze their own path and avoid the struggles I faced along my own journey.

 As a physical therapist, you already help people when no one else can…

Isn’t it time you helped yourself, too?

The Strictly Business Coaching Program is open for enrollment.

In four months, would you rather be where you are now? Or on the path to your own successful practice? The choice is yours.

Here’s what you get!

  • One 2-hour onboarding call at the start of the program.
  • One 60-90 minute one-on-one call per month for four months.
  • Two group calls per month for four months.

Module Two: Successful Systems

Your systems run your business. Learn the right systems and measurements to have in place from the start.
