Anna Grinshpun has recently been profiled in VoyageChicago, an online magazine that publishes inspiring stories about Chicago.
I was working for a local social services organization — the name of which I can’t reveal — and it hit me that I was constantly working, round the clock. No one ever saw me without my laptop. Of course, I was getting paid for “37.5” hours a week, but I was working closer to 60, I think.
I can explain how this happens if need be. At that point, I had thought about what it might be like to be in private practice. Every therapist employed by an agency knows at least one therapist who is or was in private practice, so it slowly, over time, grew to be a possibility.
Looking back, it’s amazing how far I’ve come. I went from renting office space by the hour to having my own office out of necessity. Robin, who was my intern at one point now works for me as an independent contractor. And my business is not limited to counseling.
I also provide supervised visitation services and mental health evaluations for immigration clients, mostly asylum applicants. This is not something I planned on doing, but I love doing it, and love that I am able to provide this service.
