Ryan has extensive knowledge of the outpatient behavioral healthcare industry and has been directly involved from the beginning stages with the development and operation of numerous outpatient behavioral health clinics. His involvement ranges from direct management and operations consulting to culture and IT consulting and growth.
Ryan has a heavy emphasis on clinic and culture development, organizational structuring, and navigating the buying and selling of organizations. Many clinic owners end up being both a clinician, and an active executive director within their organization. This approach can lead to untapped client and service markets, challenges to program creation and can give the owner an unclear path to succession or retirement. Ryan works diligently to provide pragmatically crafted solutions in these areas, while ensuring the culture within the organization is unparalleled. Ryan brings an understanding that there is no polarity when it comes to business operations and people as service providers, and that focusing on the people in an organization, and their measurable goals, are what leads to true growth and sustainability.
Prior to joining our team, Ryan was the Director of Business Development for Sherman Counseling Management, a private practice behavioral health clinic. Ryan was intimately involved in growth, sale, acquisition, and culture development of several clinics in the Midwest ranging from independent practices to mid-sized organizations of 50+ clinical staff.
