Champion Family Therapy

Jessica Champion had a vision for fifteen years about creating a mental health therapy clinic that was family-centered.  The concept for Champion Family Therapy was vague for all those years, until inspiration to begin led to an internet search where she found the Business Plan Accelerator class offered at the Lane Small Business Development Center. Slowly her vision began to form, and she created a business plan using the LivePlan software she accessed through the class. The result was a business plan she took to the bank to obtain financing in order to make Champion Family Therapy a reality. 

“We plan to add a Wellness Program within the next year that incorporates yoga, acupuncture, and massage to our therapeutic work in-house, that will help our clients to better manage stress, anxiety, and depression.” Her advice for anyone else wanting to start a small business, “Seek the wisdom of those more experienced than you who are willing to help shape your dream.”
