Jamey Schrier

Jamey Schrier

Founder and CEO; Head Coach

In 2004, Jamey Schrier was facing the soul-crushing struggles of private practice ownership. He couldn’t figure out how to grow his business without sacrificing his family, income or time.

Armed with an insatiable curiosity, Jamey invested the next 9 years and over $300,000, to learn how to free himself from his practice. At the end of his journey, Jamey finally discovered the formula to creating a self-managed, profitable and stable practice that allowed more time with his family and more time to work “on” his business.

Today, Jamey is sharing his practice freedom methodology to practice owners all across the country. His book, The Practice Freedom Method: The Practice Owner’s Guide To Work Less, Earn More, And Live Your Passion, has been an Amazon #1 best seller and his online education course, The Automated Private Practice (TAPP), has helped hundreds of overwhelmed practice owners using concrete strategies and business concepts.

Jamey spends his time teaching and training Physical Therapy and Chiropractic owners how to apply his methodologies through his revolutionary programs called The Foundation Program and Lighthouse Leader Program.

Jamey’s true gift is in his ability to help other practice owners quickly identify the keys areas to accelerate through their challenges, creating significant results in an easy to understand and entertaining way.

Jamey lives in Maryland with his wife, Colleen, and two kids, Jack and Gracie. When not having fun with his family, you can find him on the basketball court, the golf course or reading in his favorite spot on the porch.

Steve Thompson

Steve Thompson


Before becoming part of the Practice Freedom Method, Steve Thompson was a private practice owner who felt like there was no way to get out from the heavy burden of running a business and doing everything, trying to be there as a husband and father to his two kids, and to be a treating PT.  In 2013, Steve realized that his company was dominating him and controlling his life, his emotions and his passion.  He was faced with a decision to either change his ways or leave the profession.  The clinics were in debt and he was basically making around $24k per year AS THE OWNER!

Now, after being a faithful student of the principles of the Practice Freedom Method for the first two years, he turned his business completely around to successful 6-figure profits, added a third clinic to his group, moved completely out of treatment and has more time and freedom to run his practice.  Now, Steve is sharing his experiences and using the principles to help other practice owners as an Accountability Coach in the PFM.  Quickly he learned that coaching, mentoring, and helping others was his true passion and is now wants to help as many owners as possible achieve the same results he has achieved.  He has taken his passion for coaching and mentoring and is pioneering a new approach to practice success through his ForLIFE program, an affiliate of the PFM, and a direct result and a true compliment to the PFM.

Steve is a former collegiate and professional football player who has been a PT for 22 years.  He attended University of California, Davis for his BS in Physiology and he earned his MPT from Samuel Merritt College in Oakland, CA.  Utilizing his experiences with a college football team that won 20 consecutive conference championships, Steve loves to dive deep into how teams are formed and how they operate.  When Steve is not helping other owners, he loves to spend time with his wife Jeanine and his two kids, Cole and Ashley, as well as hiking and playing golf.  When not active, Steve can be found devouring books that enhance his learning in business and teams.
