A Safe Place to GROW Your Practice
NEXT LEVEL GROWTH
Let's be honest! You are AMAZING at what you do? You provide IMPECCABLE SERVICE to your clients. You have MASTERED your skills. You serve from your HEART. You help others to TRANSFORM using your beautiful unique gifts. You conduct yourself with HONOUR and INTEGRITY. You have a pretty solid success & return rate with your CLIENTS. Your efforts have resulted in your many ACHIEVEMENTS. You have done everything that is required for you to be SUCCESSFUL.
YET SOMETHING IS MISSING...
You have already discovered that your in-session client work is only a fraction of what is required to be successful in private practice. In order to provide impeccable service you need to serve your clients as well as manage all aspects of their service - like keeping their records up-to-date, billing, and staying on top of scheduling/rescheduling appointments. On top of all these tasks, you have to market yourself to potential new clients, keep track of all your clients paid/unpaid invoices for accounting purposes, maintain your licensing requirements, etc. Keeping all of the information needed to maintain your practice can be daunting and cumbersome. Sorting and organizing materials can utilize precious time. In the end, all of the time freedoms that you thought you'd enjoy in private practice have been swallowed up by all of the time you spend managing your business. Leaving you with little time or energy left over for you to truly GROW what BRINGS YOU JOY in your practice. Instead, the workload you carry can leave you feeling alone and unsatisfied. A recipe for BURNOUT!

Aspirations Inc: A Bold Vision
From our eager beginnings when we located and created our beautiful office space, our continued success is rooted in maintaining an open, creative, and expansive vision in our service to others that blends leading edge opportunities while remaining integral to our professional ethics and values. Over our years in practice, we have offered valuable professional clinical training to Masters Students and Registered Provisional Psychologists who are in the process of becoming fully licensed Psychologists in Alberta. This dedication to training has been successful in growing talented Psychologists working in various capacities within the world. These wonderful people are backed with our full confidence in their dedication, clinical skills and judgment. Her passion for training led Dr. Lynne M. Kostiuk to go beyond clinical trainings to create a specialized Psychologists in Business (PiB) training program that is aimed to support professionals who want to live their business dreams to their fullest capacity. True to our holistic approach, Aspirations Inc. has progressively brought in the use of essential oils to support therapeutic processes. A full year of development launched our Aspiring Healthy & Whole Communities Initiative that marked our 10 year anniversary, complete with a new line of apparel in support of mental health awareness. Dr. Lynne M. Kostiuk was at the forefront of technology with a decade of dedicated development before launching her proprietary practice management software, Aspire Practice, in 2020. Our next level of system development has brought forth the launching of Aspirations Inc. Store, which will sell various wellness products, as well as our mental health branded apparel. AND WE ARE NOT DONE YET! Rest Assured that our next developments will be infused with the excitement and progressive thinking that has been demonstrated thus far...who knows...you just may be a part of it!?!
