Startup Nation, there are a lot of perks of being a private practice owner. Doing your own bookkeeping and taxes is not one of them.

“How much should I pay myself? How much should I save for taxes? Do I have to pay quarterly taxes?”These are questions we hear from therapists all the time…

That’s why we’ve partnered with the experts at Heard to help you manage your private practice finances. On average, Heard saves therapists 60 hours per year in financial record-keeping and $5,000 in taxes. How many more clients could you see if you got 60 hours back per year? 

And when you join Heard, you get access to a team of tax pros who will guide you on your journey as you build your business.

With peace of mind about your business finances, you can put more energy into client care, where it matters most.

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.
