AAMFT's Ethical Practice Information Page
1. Even if you have a contract with a person that states you aren't their employer or supervisor, you must avoid the "look" of practicing as a group. Things such as brochures with all therapists listed would be examples of "holding yourself out" to be a group practice.
2. Checks should be written directly to the therapist, rather than to the practice name. Nothing should be run through the central bookkeeping.
