Web 2.0- How will technology impact your therapy practice?

December 1st, 2010

I got the issue of  MHISIG today-The Newsletter of the Mental Health Informatics Special Interest Group, of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, UK and my head was spinning with possibilities. If you have yet to embrace technology in your practice, you may be missing connecting with clients (and new ways of engaging in professional development)-in ways you couldn’t even imagine 10 years ago.

The MHISIG newsletter does a nice job explaining how Web 1.0 was about disseminating information, and Web 2.0 is about connections and collaboration, and as a healer and helper this is a new paradigm of connecting with clients. So what options do you have using Web 2.0 to connect and serve more people? Well you can learn more about online therapy, chat/text therapy, or join second life and conduct Avatar therapy. You may find yourself relying on your smart phone to access information and to connect with clients…and that’s just the start.

We are on the frontier of a new world when it comes to helping our clients. Right now more and more clients are seeking help in ways that will provide them with comprehensive support, resources, and encouragement, in a more flexible manner. I imagine 1:1 face-to-face therapy will be a rarity in 10 years, as therapists embrace the flexibility of working from a virtual office (who wouldn’t like the flexibility of that).

The beautiful gift in embracing Web 2.0 (and beyond) is that you will be able to create change on a larger level than seeing clients 1:1 in your office; which means 1000’s of people a year can receive your help and make tremendous changes in their lives because of the accessibility of your gifts via technology.

Yes, Toto we are not in Kansas anymore, and now’s the time to take the leap forward in your practice! If you need some support to help you navigate technology and ways to connect with you more clients, they you’ll want to claim your seat at the upcoming Tele-Forum. CLICK HERE to Learn More!

In case you missed it, here are the event details:

I know as a helper and healer it is in your heart to be of service and help people, it’s innately what you love to do ( me too)! Here’s the thing, many therapist struggle with helping more people AND creating consistent income. They believe it’s either one way-serving clients, or the other way- making money.

Well, I’m so excited to share with you a F*R*E*E (everyone loves F*ree!) paradigm-shifting event that will help you discover how you can have both- a thriving practice with consistent income while helping many, many more people.

Image how this information will impact your practice when you learn how to:

  • Streamline your working with managed care, to save you time and head-aches
  • Welcome new clients into your practice, regardless if you accept insurance or not
  • Increase your fees 20- 30% (or more) without offending or losing your current clients

How do you stand apart from other therapists?

July 7th, 2010

If you are looking to step forward and establish yourself as an expert then you are going to want to differentiate yourself from other therapists. So how are you different?

Here are some ways to help to separate yourself from other therapists and let your brilliance shine so your clients are attracted to you and your message.

1. Have an area of specialization that sets you apart from others

2. Use branding to create a unique message of what you stand for and what you do

3. Look at how you can help people beyond your office, such as offering workshops and programs to share your unique message

4. Establish your credibility in a big way by stepping forward as an expert in your niche

Are you ready to step out of your office and learn step-by-step how to establish your expertise and touch the lives of many, many, more people?

If so, then you are not going to want to miss the upcoming telesummit 101 program, where I will hand you all the tools and templates to create and event to help hundreds of potential clients, and step out from the crowd of therapists! Click here to learn more


What's Next in Growing Your Business?

March 25th, 2010

All right, you listened to all the empowering topics last week during the telesummit, and wrote down copious notes, and thought, “yes I can do that”…then what?

Life happened, work happened, things got busy, you got distracted, and all of a sudden you get my newsletter in your inbox and your thinking, “oh yeah, I forgot- I was going to do ________(fill in blank).

Okay, your human, life happens, we get busy, overwhelmed, and one more to-do seems just overwhelming. Or maybe you really don’t know where to start, so you’ll put it off for a bit.

Or maybe you are one of the so many people who share with me that they had taken action, created a blog, or implemented SEO for your website. WHOO HOO! I celebrate your steps, even the ittty bitty ones.

For those of you who seem a bit overwhelmed, and even for those of you who took action and are now wonder what’s next. I’d thought I’d offer some support.

Here’s a way to map out your vision of your business that’s authentic and congruent with your vision and values.

and you don’t need to waste your time with excessive business plans to do this.

1. Where to you want to be in 6-months to a year? Write about it, envision it, and become crystal clear.

2. Why is this so important to you?

3. Have you made a commitment to do what ever it takes to achieve this goal? If so, what does that mean to you?

4. What’s your step-by-step plan to achieve this? This is where you get very specific about what you are doing, the time it will take, the outcomes you desire, what support you will need along the way. Most people get stuck on the “how”. They don’t know what they don’t know, so they keep doing the same thing and operating under the same beliefs and actions. This is where most people get frustrated and spend years wasting time and energy, and often where they give up.

So how can you move forward if you don’t know what steps to take?

You can’t really. However, you can learn.

So it’s time to do some research and explore programs, books, and mentors who can help you with this process.

You see, everything you do should lead you into the next step. Meaning the next step for your clients to work with you, the next step you can connect with people after meeting them, the next step you can take to educate potential clients on the benefits you offer and how they can work with you. There should always be a next step.

If you take the time and write out your response to the 4 questions above you have yourself a map of where you want to go, now it’s time to take the next step and take action.

Depending upon where you are in your practice it could mean establishing your niche (that’s the foundation if you haven’t done this yet), it could be establishing your brand so you clearly convey what you do and who you work with, it could be creating marketing systems so you know what you’re working on and when, it could be developing your ‘signature system’ to help clients understand the benefits they get from working with you, it could be creating programs and packages to offer your current clients, it could be learning how to have a “connecting conversation” so you authentically enroll new clients into your practice, it could be designing your ‘profit pyramid’ whereby all of your programs and products are mapped out for the year, so you know what income you are creating and where to focus your time and energies.

Now it’s time to step forward and decide, what’s next. If you don’t know what’s next, how committed are you to learn and take action? It’s every action that you take in the right direction of your goals that will help you achieve what you desire swiftly. So out of the list of steps, decide what you’ll focus on and then take action to learn and implement it- really it’s that easy!

I’ll show you the blueprint to create a profitable authentic practice quickly, so you can implement the strategies and see results!

Celebrating a successful telesummit- what did you learn?

March 18th, 2010

Phew! What a remarkable week it has been following the Therapist Resource Telesummit. We had people all over the globe listening and writing in to share their experiences! Thank you. Here’s a well said comment from Dr. Ralph Wilson:

Thank you from this grateful individual; I am sure that you have received many notes of thanks. The telesummit has already been worth many times more than the Platinum early signup fee that I paid.

I am now busy into implementing changes and additions to my practice because of what I heard and what I found on several websites of presenters and others that I found during this intensively creative week. The event has been catalytic.

Thanks for your dynamic presence via the Internet. This is a deeply gratifying time to be a human being, we are activating rich potentials that are being unlocked through teachings such as yours.

Ralph Wilson, N.D., Counselor

What’s one thing of value you are taking away from the telesummit?  I’d love to hear what you learned and are implementing in your practice!



Client Connection Tip- what's your expertise?

March 9th, 2010

I’m going to offer you tips to build your practice leading up to the Therapist Resource Telesummit March 12-14. Here’s a tip that will help you establish yourself as the ‘go to person” when a problem arises-


It is necessary not only to help strengthen your clinical skills, but to help your clients recognize how you can help them. If you are a generalist, you do a disservice to those clients who are seeking someone with specialized skills.  Most therapist do not specialize because they are fearful that they will not be able to fill their practice. the truth is just the opposite!

To fill your practice it is essential to clearly and concisely state who you work with and the benefits they get from working with you. When you become a specialist you establish yourself as an expert, and your clients will seek you out and happily pay you for your expertise.


Something exciting is about to happen!

March 8th, 2010

There is this buzz going around about therapists looking to create consistent revenues and finding ways to let go of the dependency on insurance companies. I’d have to say a revolution is happening, as I read the practice building blogs out there. Therapists are getting tired of working so hard to get paid meager wages or they are fearful of leaving a secure job to create a private practice. Doubt and uncertainty have caused therapists to stay stuck; however, there is a undercurrent of change that happening and I’m thrilled to be a part of it!

If you haven’t signed up, I urge you to do so asap and join us for the complimentary Therapist Resource Telesummit March 12-14. Over three days you’ll find tips and strategies to help you shift from a dollars for hour work week, relying in insurance reimbursement or an agency to receive payment, to learning how you can create a profitable authentic practice, helping even more people (and making more money too). It will be a groundbreaking, and fun, event you are not going to want to miss. I’m looking so forward to sharing this information with you!

March 3rd, 2010

I’m going to offer you tips to build your practice leading up to the Therapist Resource Telesummit March 12-14. Here’s a tip that will help you make instant connection and create an opening to invite others to work with you-


Speaking is a great way for people to get to know you, even if you are an introvert. Here are a few tips to get you started:

  1. Speak to groups that your ideal clients attend. You will want to ensure that the audience you are speaking to will benefit from your message, so identify groups that attract your ideal clients.
  2. Use your signature system as your talk outline. When you create a signature system potential clients understand what you do and the benefits they will receive from working with you.
  3. Don’t worry if you are introverted, set up speaking engagements to as an opportunity to connect with your audience and understand their biggest fears, worries, and pains. You can use the speaking opportunity as a forum discussion to learn from the group and share a few insights and tips.
  4. Have a way to stay in contact with those people after they leave, beyond a brochure and business card. Because if they are not ready to work with you now, they may be ready in the future, so ensure you have a way to maintain connection.
