Pennslyvania-born psychiatrist Danielle Kamis recently put down roots and set up a practice in downtown Los Altos. Kamis specializes in sports psychiatry, sleep medicine, women’s wellness, psychotherapy and cognitive behavioral therapy.

Dr. Danielle Kamis said she always wanted to start her own practice, and in August the psychiatrist did just that in downtown Los Altos.

Opening a private practice “gives me the freedom and flexibility to be able to practice the way that I see best,” Kamis said. “I don’t have a limit to the number of hours I see a patient.”

If you follow the two rules outlined here, you should be able to use debt to your advantage without taking on undo risk.
