How do successful therapists attract clients 

without stress, strain, or hours of marketing?


"Ever since I made all the changes on my website and online directories, I am completely BOOKED! I get 2-3 requests of clients PER DAY, which I have to refer out because I have literally no time. Just wanted to say thank you :) I love all your materials so far."

-Carmen J, LMFT, Savvy Practice Therapist

How do successful therapists attract clients 

without stress, strain, or hours of marketing?


As therapists, we don’t ask much.


We just want full practices with a good, predictable income

so we can do the work we're meant to do.

The problem?

We were never taught

how

to create that good, predictable income.

Which of these have you heard?

Post your business cards on Starbucks message boards!

Write letters of introduction with your resume to doctors!

Go to networking events and hand out cards to everyone!

Lower your rate as much as possible so people pick you!

Try getting more training: the better you are, the more full you'll be!

All these techniques result

in a nasty case of 

Empty Office Syndrome

 

Symptoms include:

Being plagued by imposter syndrome and self-doubt.

Wondering when you'll have to give up and go back to that agency job.

Sliding your fee down lower and lower for anyone who asks, anytime, as long as they'll come in!

Endlessly tweaking your website and PT profile because you have no idea what will bring in clients.

Paying tons of rent for unused office hours.

No More!

There IS A CURE

for

Empty Office Syndrome

 

Getting full and staying full week after week,

year after year, comes down to 

one simple system, and 

therapists know it.

The 3-Part Savvy System

is Jet Fuel for Your Practice:

An excellent, just-right website

A killer Psych 

Today profile

A referral-maximizer system

So what's the Savvy System?

  • 1) YOUR PERFECT WEBSITE


    A website that speaks directly to your clients and uses professional copywriting structure is the MOST important step to maximize calls.

    No matter where your referrals come from, they go to your website before they call, so first we make your website TOP-notch with step-by-step, page-by-page guidance and blueprints.

  • 2) YOUR PERFECT PROFILE


    Next, you apply those professional copywriting strategies to all your directory listings, like your Psychology Today profile.

    Directories like Psych Today are always listed first when people search for a therapist. When you get your listing dialed in, the return on that small investment is HUGE and your phone  keeps ringing week after week.

  • 3) YOUR REFERRAL MAXIMIZER


    Once your online presence is dialed in tight, you can focus on the fun stuff: cultivating local relationships! 

    People who know and trust us always send us the best clients! Steal my step-by-step system to maximize your local referral sources PAINLESSLY, without sending letters that go in the trash or passing out another business card. PS: Don't be surprised if you stumble on some new best friends along the way!

When I started my private practice for the first time,

it literally never occurred to me that

I needed to learn marketing techniques

to keep a full practice.

When I started my private practice for the first time,

it literally never occurred to me that

I needed to learn marketing techniques

to keep a full practice.

To me therapy was so sacred, so important,

such a deep relationship–

the thought of “marketing” felt somehow cheap

or below my role as a therapist.

But I eventually learned what you

probably already know.


  • Therapy comes with stigma for a lot of people...so they don't call

  • People will struggle down to absolute rock bottom...so they don't call

  • Calling takes a MASSIVE leap of faith..so they don't call 

And I slowly realized that marketing was not the evil beast I'd made it out to be...


And good therapy marketing is just communicating

to potential clients that you understand

what they’re going through

and that you’d be a good choice to help them.

Simple, right? And honest.

 

And the fun part is realizing that we therapists are

 the BEST and MOST NATURAL at this....

because we understand human psychology!

We didn't choose marketing as a career path. 

 

We didn't go to Business School. 

 

But we are still the most

honest, natural communicators on the planet...

and we can empathize with human

fear and motivation better than anyone!

 

Harness that knowledge...

and fill your practice.

Ready for the Real Deal?


Applying the psychology you already know to

1) your website,

2) your directory profiles,

and

3) your referral system...

WILL FILL YOUR PRACTICE. 

FAST.

Creating a successful, predictable, FULL practice means:

 

  • Freedom from financial stress

  • Helping the most possible people 

  • Pride of doing the work you were born for 

  • Joy in setting your own schedule and living life according to YOUR values

  • Loving your work (and life) each day!

So if you're ready to create a

full private practice...

Whether you are:

  • Struggling to get enough clients

  • New to private practice, 

  • Transitioning away from insurance, or 

  • Just ready to FINALLY explode your income...

Then YOU are a

Savvy Therapist!

Introducing...

Savvy Practice Therapists

Know...

How to write a perfect

website, step

by step

How to create your directory profiles for massive results

How to develop and maximize your referral network

And They Know it All WITHOUT...

Being buried in tech hell or spending thousands on a web designer

Losing $$ for YEARS on a website or profile that just don't bring in clients

Feeling lost, confused, stressed, or directionless about marketing

Listen. You know the psychology. 

You just need the blueprints.


Did you know...


There is a clinical strategy you already use

that can compel clients to call for therapy

MONTHS earlier than they normally would?


There is ONE part of your website and profile

that can make or break your success...

and most therapists get it so, so wrong.


There are some writing techniques

you learned in grad school that are

KILLING your chances of attracting clients online?

Hi, I'm Katie Read, LMFT

In my many years as a licensed therapist, I've done all the jobs:

  • Community-based mental health

  • Agency Leadership

  • Private Practices in Different Cities

  • Clinical Supervisor to 40+ interns

  • Grad School Professor

  • Creator of Therapist Training Materials

  • Editor of an Online Psychology Magazine 

  • Conference Speaker

 

Now, I use my love of our field + my skills in copywriting and marketing to teach therapists just like you how to build the exact practice and income you want.

    I offer high-end consultation to successful therapists...but until now I didn't have a low-priced, super-affordable way for people to GROW the practices of their dreams.

     

    As a younger therapist, I could never have afforded the consulting I do now. I needed to find a way to support every therapist out there who just wants to do great work and have a steady, stress-fee income.

    To have an always-full practice, you need to know:


    Exactly how to create your website and directory listings for maximum client attraction


    The precise structure professional copywriters use to KEEP PEOPLE READING...and calling


    How to know instantly if you're not-quite-aligning with your ideal clients, and how to fix it


    How to stay top-of-mind with your local referral sources at all times, and how to build a local network that keeps on giving.


    The “little extras” that make all the difference in whether the client calls you...or the next therapist on the list


    And while you're at it,

    you might as well know:


    How to get perfect pictures online and avoid a common and COSTLY photography scam


    How to find the perfect colors and logo to attract your best clients


    Where and how to find and use keywords for SEO dominance

    Nothing out there is like Katie’s materials. 

     

    Once I got started I really became hooked on fixing it all, colors, fonts, sizes, moving things around and I became so comfortable with changing my site, which is what I WANTED!  I did not want a website that I didn’t know how to fix later!

        Building something that is uniquely yours that you can share with the world is PRICELESS. Having support from Katie (who knows her shit)...is PRICELESS. And learning how to do things right the first time and not puttering around feeling confused and second-guessing yourself is PRICELESS.

                        but I know my own story.

                        I started my career in community mental health inner-city-Oakland.

                         

                        I was dead broke and dead tired.

                         

                        I could NEVER have afforded a pricey practice-building course.

                        Even a monthly membership was way too scary to commit to!

                         

                        I needed the exact information I've put into this course.

                        Desperately.

                        This is my way of giving back to the profession I love:

                         

                        ....A course that everyone can afford

                         

                        ...A course that everyone can do

                         

                        ...A course that charts the FASTEST path from where you are right now to a full and happy practice

                        Therapist & Coach

                        Katie is an amazing resource. She’s a strong guide. She’s just the person you need to help you.

                        So how much is $37?

                        Well, if you're charging $150

                        (which I hope you are, but if not we'll get you there),

                        then it's 12 minutes of ONE SESSION.

                         

                        You can dedicate 12 minutes of one session this month to guaranteeing yourself a successful practice

                         

                        Heck, even if you only learned ONE little tidbit,

                        and that ONE little tidbit created just ONE new client,

                        your $37 investment would turn into hundreds

                        (and most likely thousands)

                        of dollars in recurring fees from just that single client! 

                        So the real question is...

                        can you afford NOT to do it?

                        I have really really honestly developed that confidence piece. I feel like I can expand my business. I feel stronger as an individual and as a counselor.

                        I used all her tips and suddenly prospective clients started calling me because they had found my website and most of them said "What you say on your website is happening to us and it looks like you might know how to help us." BOOM!

                        Frequently asked questions


                        I’m scared to build a website.

                        What if I just have a little single webpage at a group practice?

                        Is there support if I get stuck?

                        I already have a website.

                        I’m a (Psychologist, Psychiatrist, intern, associate, LPC, LCSW, LMFT, etc). Will this work?

                        Is there a Money-Back Guarantee?
