As a therapist, it is important that your counseling practice website feel safe, warm and professional. This site energy can take shape through design elements that range from a photo of you with a warm smile & nice eye contact, to ensuring proper security certificates on the site. Counseling clients are also looking for the "right fit", and it's important to them to understand your specialty areas (depression, anxiety, life changes, couples, adolescent, seniors, anger, sexual trauma, PTSD...) and approach to therapy ((EFT, Mindfulness, Hypnosis,  Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, etc...) I strive to build a website that is not only professional in tone but also warm and engaging - helping potential counseling clients to feel ready to take that first step in seeking help.

If you have a group counseling practice with more than one therapist, you will need an easy-to-navigate team page with bios & specialty areas for each team member. If there are particular aspects of the practice that you want to emphasize, then we might develop a "hub" page focused on that particular niche. For example, if you have particular expertise in therapy services with adolescents, we might develop a page linking to a range of blog posts and resources related to the reasons teenagers may need therapy support.

Below are a few examples of counseling and therapist websites I have designed. You can click on each of the images below to see the website live.
