Most therapists I talk to have a love-hate relationship with social media.
On the one hand growing a large following online can do wonders for your career and practice. Even if you don’t want to be “famous,” it’s hands down the most effective way today to:
Yet many therapists think social media will just be too much work.
They worry about spending lots of time “posting” without results or new followers and are left wondering if it’s worth it at all. Some fear sharing too much online can lead to ethical or legal problems.
If you feel this way, I get it.
I’ve been there too!
However, as one of the most followed therapists on the internet, I want to show you how to grow your presence online and reach the masses with your expertise...
...All while staying true to yourself, your clients, and your professional ethics.
The fact is becoming an influential therapist on social media doesn’t need to take up all your time. In fact, today I’m on social media just about 20 minutes per day.
The great news is I’ve developed a way for therapists to have a thriving online and social media presence that’s professional, ethical, AND can fit into your busy schedule.
In just a few years, I became one of the most influential and followed therapists online today, with over 3 million engaged followers on social media with a heavy speaking schedule, all while having a full-time practice.
I’ve encountered and worked through numerous unique professional and ethical dilemmas in building an online psychoeducation brand and will show you exactly how to overcome them.
This is the workshop I wish I had at the beginning.
With the right guidance, tools, and avoiding the mistakes I made, it’s something every therapist can do.
If you've been uncomfortable getting your voice out there, this course will show you exactly how to reach your goals online, whether you just want to establish your niche and attract the right clients to your practice OR grow an international audience of hundreds of thousands or even millions of followers.
I invite you to join me for this course where we will explore the complexities of breaking into the industry, social media, and more.
This online training is designed for therapists who want to:
Through hands-on learning, interactive discussions, and step-by-step worksheets, you'll leave feeling confident in your ability to ethically share your expertise, establish your authority, and build your brand online.
If you want to build a world where mental health services and therapists are valued, trusted, and accessible for all, join me for this exclusive course!
