As a therapist, I can tell you from experience that having the right EHR is an absolute lifeline. I recommend using TherapyNotes. They make billing, scheduling, notetaking, telehealth, and E-prescribing incredibly easy. Best of all, they offer live telephone support that's available 7 days a week.


You don’t have to take my word for it - Do your own research and see for yourself - TherapyNotes is the #1 highest rated EHR system available today, with 4.9 out of 5 stars on and on Google.

Go to and use the promo code PPS for a special 2-month trial, absolutely free.

If you’re coming from another EHR, TherapyNotes will import your demographic data quick and easy at no cost, so you can get started right away.


Trust me, don’t waste any more of your time, and try TherapyNotes.

Do you ever worry about money as a practice owner? If so, you're not alone.

I want to tell you about Profit First for Therapists, a new book that customizes the Profit First system SPECIFICALLY for private practice owners.

For therapists, profit is too often an afterthought. You focus on caring for clients and paying rent and clinicians, and take home the leftovers—if there are any. Through client stories and case studies, powerful frameworks, and simple tips, the book lays out a clear path to profitability.

You’ll find step-by-step instructions for implementing Profit First in practices of all sizes, from startups to multi-million dollar practices. It will leave you feeling empowered to look at your finances instead of crossing your fingers and hoping for the best.

Julie Herres from GreenOak Accounting, takes a subject that most therapists find confusing and speaks about it in a way that is simple and easy to understand. The book covers so much more than just Profit First, it also includes financial literacy building blocks and tips for scaling, paying down debt, paying yourself and much more.

This book will give you the tools you need to stop worrying about money and achieve financial freedom. Advance readers agreed: This is the missing link most practice owners need.

Go to to order your copy today or find it on Amazon and other online bookstores!

Directories can be a good source for new clients, but which directories are really worth it? Well, according to an extensive review of therapist directories by VeryWellMind, more than 90% of therapists recommend Mental Health Match.

We love Mental Health Match because they understand the therapeutic relationship starts before a client contacts you. They’ve set up their directory to give clients a sense of confidence in you as a clinician and connection with you as a person. Their smart matching technology makes sure you only hear from clients who are a good fit for your practice. And referrals come with insightful information about the client, their presenting problems, and what they seek in a therapist.

With over ten thousand clients coming every week, Mental Health Match is a great way to find the clients you want.

Eren Moore, a New Jersey therapist, said, “I have been getting almost 2 referrals a week from Mental Health Match and I like their ability to match me with my niche clients. These clients reflect my skill sets and they come ready and open to the therapy process. This is energizing for both the therapist and clients.”

We couldn’t agree more. And now, you can try Mental Health Match for free for 90 days. Just go to, and use referral code “Startup.”
