Hi there! I'm Daniel, founder of CreateMyTherapistWebsite.com, where I help therapists and counselors attract more clients with awesome websites and simple ways to market their private practice online.
When my wife was first starting her private practice back in 2011, I jumped into action and built her website using WordPress. We saw first-hand how important it was to have a modern, easy-to-navigate website that resonated with her ideal clients.
She began to fill up her calendar with clients who would say, "I was looking at a couple other therapists but I really loved your website."
So it became my mission to help other practitioners do the same with their own websites, providing simple tools and training to market a practice online and fill up their calendar with clients they love.
