Therapist Roll Call

Therapist Roll Call: Join The Private Practice Pinterest List

Therapist Roll Call Pinterest Do you use Pinterest? I do and I have found some amazing relationship and emotional health resources for my clients and practice building resources. I've also found that it's a great way to direct visitors to my website and learn about my services.

In the past, I've featured a roll call for therapists so we could connect on Twitter and Facebook, and it was very well received. I'd like to continue that tradition so we can get to know each other more on social media.

I recently wrote about how Pinterest can benefit your practice. So let's all add our Pinterest information and see what kinds of things we're pinning on our boards. Connect with me on Pinterest here

Therapist Roll Call: Can We Peek Inside Your Office, Please?

53/365 Sneak a peekThe physical "space" you work  in says a lot about you. Does your office space appeal to your ideal client? Does it speak about your tastes and preferences? Would you be willing to give other shrinks a tour of your office? Why or why not? Every time a new client comes into my office they comment on my denim couch. It feels cozy and casual, which is how I want my clients to feel when they're in my office. The color scheme of the office decor coincides with our logo and website colors...and that's no accident.

I thought it would be fun to peek into the offices of private practitioners to share ideas and get inspiration. So, if you're willing to let the world (or the readers of this blog) see YOUR office space follow these simple step.

  1. Take a brief video tour of your waiting area and office (2 minutes or less). You can do this with your iPhone or camera phone.
  2. In the video please introduce yourself and tell us what you love about your office space.
  3. Upload your video to your Youtube channel and set it as "unlisted." If you don't have a Youtube channel, it's time you set one up.
  4. Title your video "Office Tour: [your practice name]"
  5. Email me the video link here. Include in the email your name, location, practice name, website link.

I'll feature different office videos in upcoming blog posts with your practice name and website link (this is a free PR opp for your practice & a good excuse to set up a Youtube channel). You'll also be able to embed this video on your own website so potential clients can see inside your office before they meet with you.

Ready, set, go...

Here's a peek into my therapy office Wasatch Family Therapy. I hired a professional to shoot and edit this. Don't worry - your video doesn't have to have music and slick editing :)

Therapist Roll Call: Join Private Practice Toolbox Facebook Group

Call it group therapy for therapists. Connect with other like-mined therapists in my closed Facebook group and share resources, ideas, practice building tools, successes and failures. Must be a licensed mental health therapist or therapist in training be added to the group.

Click here and request to join the Private Practice Toolbox Facebook group

  • If you're not familiar with Facebook groups, you'll have to join as your personal profile. Unfortunately, at this point you can't participate as your Facebook practice page.
  • Your posts in the group will not show up in your other Facebook friend's newsfeeds, even though it may show up on your feed.
  • As you get to know other therapists in the Facebook group it's OK to be selective in who you add as a "friend" to your personal profile. There's no pressure to add anyone in the group as a "friend" on your personal profile.
  • My goal in creating the group is to have a fun and supportive forum to share ideas with each other in a more dynamic way than just through blog comments.
  • I'll post articles from this Private Practice Toolbox blog in the Facebook group so we can discuss them. Feel free to post helpful practice building resources that you find with the group, too.

I'm looking forward to talking with you! So, what are you waiting for?

See you in the Private Practice Toolbox Facebook Group
