Presented/Developed By

Ken Urie MA LMHC is the founder and Executive Director of Mill Creek Family Services and co-founder and business consultant for Group Practice Success. Ken enjoyed many years as a successful private practitioner with a consistently full caseload. However, he wanted to find a way to serve the people calling for counseling help that he didn’t have room for in his schedule. He was inspired by an article written by Joe Bavonese in the Psychotherapy Networker about moving from a sole-provider practice to a Group Practice. With that inspiration, Ken took action. In 2010, he leased 3 adjacent offices and hired additional therapists to see clients. At the time, Ken thought that this expansion would be the one and only time he would take such a significant leap. However, within the first 2 years, the referrals for his Group Practice soared and, as a result, pushed the limits of it’s capacity.

In mid-2013, Ken stepped back from providing direct services for clients himself in order to fully focus on creating an ideal work-environment for his Group Practice providers and staff. Since then, Ken expanded his Group Practice to 33 counseling offices in 2 locations in Mill Creek and Everett, Washington. He employs a Dream Team of 35 Therapists, an Assistant Director, Professional Development Director, Clinical Lead and 8 Administrative Specialists, all who represent excellence in their work and dedication to the Mill Creek Family Services mission to provide Healing, Hope & Possibilities for their community.

In 2017, Ken expanded his direct support and guidance for other Group Practice owners across North America with his business consulting and coaching. Ken is passionate about optimizing the potentials available with the Group Practice model for fellow Group Practice owners. He is convinced that the “inner-game” of the entrepreneur is the primary driver of our results. For Ken, Group Practice Success is equally about WHAT we build and WHO we become along the way that makes all the difference.
