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.

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!
