Higher Practice was founded by a husband and wife team, Keith Kurlander and Emma Teitel, with the mission to empower therapists to achieve their highest potential. We believe mental health professionals are catalysts for positive social change and key influencers in uplifting consciousness and alleviating unnecessary suffering. With this in mind, Keith and Emma designed Higher Practice to provide mental health professionals with innovative clinical trainings for continuing education hours, as well as the most comprehensive business course available for those pursuing private practice.
Keith Kurlander has two decades of combined experience in business administration, group facilitation, teaching at the undergraduate and graduate level, yoga instruction and as a licensed professional counselor in private practice. His unique background in business administration and counseling has enabled him to become highly successful as a mission-driven entrepreneur and teaching others to do the same.
Emma Teitel is a practicing psychotherapist and coach and a leader in female empowerment. She specializes in coaching individuals through the psychological and spiritual blocks that arise when pursuing a private practice. Emma has also studied online marketing for the past six years and has expertise in leveraging social media and other online resources in the creation of a private practice.
