Psychologists and psychiatrists have not embraced internet marketing as quickly as other service industries. Many therapists rely on associations and hospitals to list their office locations and specialties. The lack of a website presence makes it extremely difficult for future patients to locate potential counselors and seek assistance with mental health issues.

If you are a therapist and you don’t yet have a website, we recommend you read through our FAQ section to learn more about WordPress and what is included in your new website template. Learn more about WordPress and how you can use it to create a professional looking website on a budget.
While we’ve built Kathleen’s demo as a psychologist website, the WordPress theme could easily manage other websites.
