Wynne has treated male inmates and youthful offenders in psychiatric facilities, as well adolescents and adults in substance abuse rehabs. She has worked with all of these populations in both outpatient and inpatient settings. Over the years, her skill set grew to include program development, Family Program facilitation and development, staff development, and curriculum development, particularly in the areas of family systems in treatment.

In 2013, Wynne also started her private practice, first as a solo practitioner. In 2016, she incorporated SoulSpring Counseling Inc., a group private practice located in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. She oversees a team of dynamic therapists and is always looking to add like-minded clinicians to #TeamSoulSpring.

Why Now?

Studies have confirmed that 20-25% of persons, cutting across age and socioeconomic boundaries, have been diagnosed with mental health disorder. Anxiety, depression, trauma, and substance use disorders (SUDs) are calculated to be most prevalent. An estimated one third of persons who meet criteria for Major Depressive Disorder are getting no treatment. Opioid use and overdoses are considered “epidemic” by the Centers for Disease Control. Overall, persons seeking mental health services are on the rise. Outpatient care delivery leads the way driven by increased community awareness and acceptance, as well as third party payer motivation to drive down costs.

Despite the fact that 86.2% of the population in Palm Beach County, FL has health coverage (Data USA), most people who have a diagnosable disorder are not getting treated. There is a need for cost effective behavioral health resources to meet the rising needs for service.

To meet increased demand for services, the behavioral health industry has a projected growth rate of 23% through 2026, considered faster than average growth for all occupations nationwide (Occupational Outlook Handbook). This growth is attributed to greater overall interest by the populace in seeking therapy, addiction, and mental health services. Additionally, as states seek treatment and counseling services for drug offenders instead of jail time, demand for professionals in this industry will continue to increase.

Based on data analysis and comparison of 22 websites within the top 20% of geographically adjacent competitors, SoulSpring Counseling maintains the overall advantage as it relates to location, average years of experience, special certifications, and practice structure. Additionally, SoulSpring Counseling, in network with many insurance providers, is equipped to treat Middle Class clients who struggle with the most prevalent diagnoses at an affordable cost. The recent addition of telehealth services is a viable avenue to treat older populations and those who have transportation or other barriers to in office sessions.

SoulSpring Counseling is equipped to educate the community at large regarding current industry trends, gaps in service delivery, and means by which to obtain services at an affordable rate. SoulSpring Counseling is also positioned to consult with other providers to increase service provision opportunities to meet the rising demand for services. Attendees of this workshop will know the conditions, procedures, strategies and industry trends needed to start and build a successful private practice in Florida.
