The best part of my job is that I get to meet amazing therapists, counselors, coaches and psychologists doing amazing work. Recently I had the pleasure of working with Karen Midyet to launch her new coaching business, Coaching Aging Adults.

What was so exciting about Karen’s project to me was that she wasn’t just refreshing an old website, but creating an entirely new business!

Karen had built a great private practice, Colorado Senior Counseling, serving her local population of adults facing the challenges of aging, working with caregivers and their transition to retirement.

She’s collected a wealth of information and resources helpful to the aging population as well as for caregivers who work with older adults.

It’s time for Karen to share those resources with the world!

Now, she has a vision for what she wants her business to look life for the future.

Karen decided she wanted to reach a larger population with resources and coaching services and be more selective about how she spent her time in her business as she gets older.

She also has a vision of starting a podcast and offering online training.

In order to do that, she launched a new business, Coaching Aging Adults, and has begun the work of building a new online platform for herself.

When Karen and I first spoke, we discussed the challenges she’d face in creating an online platform and how we could work together to meet those challenges head on.

Color in website design has the power to evoke emotion, capture your target audience and represent the personality of your private practice. But how do you find a color palette that works for your website?

In this article, we’ll talk all about color and give you some resources to find the best palette for your private practice website.

Color in website design has the power to evoke emotion, capture your target audience and represent the personality of your private practice. But how do you find a color palette that works for your website? In this article, we’ll talk all about color and give you some resources to find the best palette for your private practice website

Why Color is so Important to your Private Practice Website

Color is one of the main factors that go into creating an effective website design.

If you group the right colors together, it can actually affect how potential clients perceive you and your practice.

Is your personality and brand one of excitement and spunk? Then brighter colors may help attract clients that gravitate toward that type of personality.

Or maybe you want to attract people with high anxiety in their lives…

You may want to stick with blues and greens, which tend to have a more calming and sincere feeling attached to them.

In a study by psychologist and Stanford professor Jennifer Aaker, she points out five core dimensions that play a role in a brand’s personality.

The above personalities can be a good starting point as you decide what type of personality you want to create for your private practice and website.

But as with most cases of art and design, there are no hard and fast rules.

You can certainly create a level of excitement and masculinity by using bright reds or yellows, but it often depends on the context and juxtaposition of photos and messaging you have on a website.

I always encourage people to create a mood board on Pinterest.

Take some time and collect photos that speak to you and the feeling you want to evoke with your website.

What types of images come to mind when you think about your practice and target audience?

Starting with a photo can be the easiest way to nail down a color palette that jives with your brand and attracts the type of clients you want in your office.

So let’s talk about getting started.

Starting with a photo to find a color palette you love

Not many things can evoke certain emotions or feelings quite like photography can.

It may be hard to fully describe how you want your ideal clients to feel when they land on your website.

But sometimes when you see the right photo, that may be enough to capture that essence.

If you’re planning on creating a new website for your practice, a great idea is to begin collecting these types of photos.

Once you have a collection of colorful photographic inspiration, you can narrow it down to the one you feel would speak most to your ideal client and support your businesses brand.

Websites use HTML codes to display colors (often called hex codes). So, you’ll need to know what the hex codes are for the colors you find in your favorite image.

One great resource you can use to extract color codes from your favorite design inspirational photos, is Canva’s Color Palette Generator.

canva color picker

This tool is super easy to use.

Just drag and drop your image from your computer onto the center of the page.

The website will reload and show you the color codes for the main colors found in your photo:

therapy website color palette example

Then you can just click on each color to copy the code and save it in a document for later use on your website.

My favorite WordPress theme, Divi, actually lets you set a default color palette so you can use it throughout your website.

So I would just paste these codes right in there at the beginning of my website project.

More Resources To Help You Find a Color Palette for Your Private Practice Website

There are a few other resources that you can use to find the perfect color palette for your website (or any marketing materials you’ll be creating!).

I often recommend the following ones when working with my website design clients.

Design Seeds

When thinking about creating a private practice website, it’s always helpful to gather your inspiration before beginning the project. Looking at other therapist websites will spark ideas about what you like (and don’t like), how you’d like your website to function and give you inspiration when writing your content.

This week’s article is for child therapists!: I’ve rounded up 10 great examples of child and play therapy websites you can use for inspiration for your own.

What Makes a Great Child Therapy Website?

As a web designer for therapists, I see lots of private practice websites.

There are a few reasons why a play therapy website would cause this guy to stop and take notice.

Here is some of the criteria I look for in a great therapy website:

  1. The website is functional and easy to use on all devices. I have no trouble navigating the website and clearly understanding where to find information I’m looking for.
  2. The website clearly communicates who this therapist helps and what they specialize in. I can tell what type of client would find their website useful.
  3. Design that compliments the information on the private practice website. I’m not overwhelmed by many calls to action, photos that don’t fit the design, colors that don’t jive and layouts that are hard to navigate.
  4. The website is unique! It may be subjective but there’s just certain qualities that make a website stand out from the crowd.

So now that you know some of the thinking behind the list, let’s get to the websites!

Below you’ll find some great examples of websites geared toward child therapy, play therapy and even some physical therapy for children as well.

One of the most exciting parts of my job is seeing a client’s website come to life. It’s thrilling to me to take an empty canvas and turn it into a space that reflects my client, communicates what they do and helps to grow their business.

What was once a parked domain is suddenly a way for my client to be found and reach the people she feels called to serve.

Today, we’re showcasing the internet’s newest addition, Allison Davis Maxon.

allison maxon therapy website home 1

Allison has dedicated her more than 25 years of clinical work as a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist to expert programs and practices in children’s mental health, attachment family systems, adoption and trauma.

Not only is she a therapist, but she’s an educator, speaker and consultant dedicated to helping children, families and organizations connect, heal and thrive.

Why She Needed a Website

When Allison and I first met, she didn’t have a website.

An impressive feat, given the scope of work you’ll find in her resume and list of experience!

As Allison’s vision for her business grew to reach more audiences through speaking, consulting and writing, she knew that a website was needed to showcase her past experience and build authority for the future.

She was also in the process of writing a book and knew that a professional website would be key to a successful launch in the future.

Allison’s vision for the future of her business relied on having a website now in order to get where she needs to be.

If she wanted to attract more speaking opportunities, get more clients and share her passion and expertise with the world, (Allison is an expert in the fields of child welfare, adoption and children’s mental health) she needed a website.

The Website Design Process & Our Work Together

As with all of my clients, Allison and I started with a conversation about where she was at in her business, where she wanted to go and how a website could help her get there.

Then, I gathered a whole bunch of information from Allison, via a questionnaire I send my new clients, that gives me an idea of their design style.

I ask things like:

  • How do you want visitors to feel when they come to your website?
  • What type of fonts and colors are you drawn to?
  • What websites inspire you?

Allison had no problems telling me that she had looked at hundreds of websites to find inspiration and disliked just about all of them.

“I honestly can’t stand the cookie-cutter looking sites that are out there,” she said.

As the designer, I loved this type of honesty because it helps me know what my target is.

So my challenge was to take Allison’s impressive work and organize and showcase it with a website that was original, unique, easy to use and looked great on all devices.

Game on!

I got to work on her homepage and about page. These two pages would set the tone and design style for the rest of her website.

To be honest, I was a bit nervous when it was time to get Allison’s first round of feedback on the work I’ve done.

But it turned out she loved where I was taking her website and felt it truly captured her personality and preferences for her website.

After the Launch: Marketing her Private Practice & Business

Now that Allison has a place her business can call home, she’s got a platform from which to market her vast experience and services.

I use the Divi WordPress theme for my custom therapy websites, which gives my clients the power to easily make updates in the future.

Allison has jumped right into content marketing and is now posting her own articles on her website and sharing those articles on her social media channels.

And since she now has a website, any other place she contributes content can be linked back to her website.

She’s got full control over how she drives traffic to attract new clients and opportunities.

“Daniel was professional, responsive and engaged throughout the process. I appreciated his feedback and input; as it allowed us to co-create a website that I think was better than what I had envisioned. I wouldn’t hesitate recommending Daniel to others.”

Does Your Website Match Your Vision for Your Private Practice?

It was so much fun to see Allison’s website come to life and I’m honored to play a small part in getting her closer to her vision for her business.

Your website is one of your most important marketing tools and I take pride in creating these tools for my clients.

Today we’re doing another round of the 5-minute private practice website review. Each month we take a quick look at your submitted websites and I provide my feedback, tips and strategies you can use to make your awesome therapy website even better.

Today’s therapy website is for Dr. Vijayeta Sinh at www.drsinh.com.

Let’s get right to it.

My First Impressions of This Private Practice Website

I love Vijayeta’s homepage.

It’s extremely simple and gets straight to the point without overwhelming the user with a lot of information. I’m taking notes for myself here!

She’s got a bold title that is uber clear and identifies the target demographic of people she helps in her therapy practice.

Then, the only call to action she has is to contact her. The next step she wants her potential clients to take is extremely clear.

Think about your own homepage. Is it clear what you want your clients to do?

Or is it possible you have TOO MUCH information that could potentially confuse your users.

Think of ways you can simplify and get laser focused with your content on your homepage.

Tips For a Robust About Page

psychotherapy website about page sinh

I think Vijayeta can expand on the information on her about page.

I recommend adding a new section that serves as an introduction to her practice and the demographic she serves.

An about page is not just about you, but about your potential clients and giving them more reasons to know, like and trust you enough to come to you with their challenging situation.

So lead with information that speaks to your potential clients before jumping into your full bio.

I think she could move her photo up to the top of the sidebar to help give a visual start to the top of the page. As it is now, my eye tends to jump over her content straight to her photo at the bottom right side.

Providing the Right Information for Your Potential Clients

psychotherapy individual therapy webste page

Dr. Sinh has three main pages for her services: Individual, Couples/Families and Groups.

These pages are currently quite simple with general information about each service.

I think it’s helpful to get into your potential client’s mindset in order to provide the right information that they need to take the leap and call you for therapy.

Seeking out a therapist can be difficult for some people. It may be a source of anxiety, especially if someone is feeling shame about reaching out.

You can use your website as a way to comfort people, reassure them that you get what they’re going through and provide the right information to do just that.

For example, Vijayeta mentions DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) on her individual therapy page but maybe she can create a new section and define what DBT is, why she uses it and why it is effective.

She could take these pages a step further by listing some of the specialties she focuses on in her private practice, then create even more specific pages for each of those.

I’d also recommend adding a clear call-to-action under the large photo on each of her services page to make the next step her clients should take very clear.

Conclusion

Dr. Sinh has done an excellent job creating a simple and attractive private practice website.

She’s got all the essential pages on her website, but I think she can spend some time and expand the information within those pages to create more of a connection with potential clients, normalize their challenges and educate them.

The hope is that this information will provide the answer to any objection a client may have about calling to book that first appointment.

Thanks, Vijayeta! Great work!

Welcome to another edition of the 5-minute(ish) private practice website review. Each month I choose one of my readers and review their therapy website and provide whatever quick tips, encouragements and improvements I can.

To view some more website reviews, click here.

Our latest private practice website review comes to us from Deidre A. Prewitt, MSMFC, LPC at reconnectingcolumbus.com.

First Impressions of Her Therapy Website

Deidre has done an excellent job creating a clean website that’s easy to navigate and pleasant to look at.

I love the images that span the width of each page. This looks great and it gives your eye a starting place on each page. When I click a menu link, I see the pretty photo then I move down into the information on that page.

I think she’s done an amazing job with her copy too.

On the homepage, she’s included a series of questions that speak directly to the frame-of-mind her potential clients may find themselves. She comes off as someone who is warm and empathetic to their situation.

After that, she moves into the solution to her clients’ problem: her therapy services.

She provides them with hope, encouragement as well as some information about her passion to “break the cycle of conflict” in people’s relationships.

I also love how she’s branded herself.

Deidre has excelled at branding herself as a couples and family counselor in Columbus, OH.

She’s got a great domain name, reconnectingcolumbus.com, which is a mission statement in itself.

You quickly get a sense of what her counseling practice is about when you look at that domain and it’s reinforced even more when you land her website.

I love that she’s got a few great photos of Columbus, OH sprinkled throughout her website. You know exactly what population she serves geographically by seeing the photos, her domain name and her copy.

Recommendations for her Private Practice Website

Making the Homepage More Legible

While Deidre has done a great job with her copy and messaging on her homepage, I think a couple small tweaks – to organize the information and present it a little cleaner – would go a long way.

There is some bold text, some italic text and some text of slightly varying sizes. This makes the main block of information on her homepage a little hard for the eye to digest.

I suggest segmenting the info into two areas.

The first one contains the challenges and problems that her clients face. She could even give it a larger header so her readers know where they’re at. This will help jump from the “Couple and Family Counseling” section into the main information she wants to convey on her homepage.

So, maybe a header like “Does This Sound Familiar?”, followed by her questions.

Losing the italics on the four questions and giving them more space between them may help it not to look like so much text.

The next segment is the solution area, starting from “Let us work together to tackle the challenges that prevent you from getting the love you want and need.” I think she could lose the italics and make that font larger, to appear more as a header (same size as “Does This Sound Familiar” header above) and signify a transition on the content.

Replace The Logo With a Call To Action Area

I suggest moving the contact button from the top area of her homepage down to the bottom.

The reason being is that the viewer hasn’t had a chance to understand why they should contact her yet. They haven’t read what she’s about.

And if they are a return visitor, she’s got a Contact link up in her main navigation, plus her phone number. It’s clear how to get in touch with her.

Because logos typically appear at the top of the page, here bold title “Reconnecting Columbus” above her navigation feels like a logo to me.

The logo at the bottom has a different style than the rest of the website and I only see it at the bottom of the homepage, so I think it can be removed.

So, if possible, I recommend creating a new call to action area at the bottom of the homepage with a title about getting in touch with her. In there is where she can place her contact button.

Updates to The Footer If Possible

If her template allows it, I recommend putting some information into the footer.

I love the color and the anchor her footer gives to her website. My eye is drawn to it, so it would be great to make some more use of it.

I recommend putting her main navigation down there, along with some contact info.

This way, when a user gets to the bottom of the page and they’re thinking about what to do next, they’ll have some options to click on.

Consistent Headers on Each Page

Blame it on my designer’s eye… I sometimes have a nit-picky attention to detail.

But the headers on each page vary in size and sometimes color. I’d attempt to go through and make them uniform to keep things consistent.

Expand Content for Topics Covered

Deidre has a great opportunity to really expand on her content.

On her Counseling For Couples page, she lists a few topics that she often covers in her therapy work.

I recommend spending some time creating devoted web pages for each of these topics, and maybe more.

Each page can have a title that includes “Columbus”. She could also include “Columbus, OH” within her copy as well.

Doing this would not only have SEO (search engine optimization) benefits for her, it would provide even more information about how she helps her clients through each of those topics and help those potential clients get a better feel for her and her expertise before taking the plunge of therapy.

For some tips on optimizing specific pages for SEO, check out this post here.

Conclusion

All in all, I think Deidre has done an amazing job with www.reconnectingcolumbus.com.

With just a couple minor design tweaks and some expanded content, she can really improve her private practice website and hopefully attract even more of the clients she loves to help.

I’m excited to bring you another 5-minute therapy website review today! Each month I choose one of my reader’s websites and look at it through my website designer’s eye and give some simple feedback to help them improve their private practice website.

Today’s website comes from the private practice of Starla R. Sholl, LCSW. You can view her website at http://www.starlasholl.com.

To watch the review, just click on the video below:

Some Simple Design Tweaks

Starla’s website is clean and simple, which I love, but I think there a few things she could do to make the content a little more user friendly.

In the video, I mention that her logo could be slightly larger to help it stand out more. This would help the user’s eye to start in the top left corner a little more easily.

That’s typically how we read websites. So, having a logo that clearly lets people know where they are is a plus. From there, the user’s eye will be led into the content.

I found that the green background behind her main content was causing me to glance over the text and not take in what she was trying to communicate.

I recommend changing this to a very light gray, something like #e1e1e1 (web color format) or even white. This makes the page not so heavy and gives the eye room to flow into the text.

Starla could also think about adding more photos to her website.

Right now, the only photo is her headshot. So, on every page, my eye is drawn to this photo each time. I’d consider removing the headshot, or only having it on certain pages, such as her About page.

Adding photos within the content would help to give it some more weight and pull the user into her information more.

It will also help break up long paragraphs and make it easier to read.

Another added benefit to adding more photos(which I forgot to mention in the video) is that Google considers pages with images to be of more value, so it could have some SEO benefits as well.

Some Simple Content Tweaks

I have just a couple small content ideas for Starla to consider.

On her homepage, she could add a headline at the beginning of the content to let potential clients and website visitors know right away what her therapy practice is about.

You only have precious seconds to communicate to users who you are and what you do, so it’s important to hook them in with a clear statement, before moving them further along into your website and other information.

I loved how Starla presents a number of issues her clients may be dealing with, right on the homepage.

The next step should could take is to introduce herself as the solution to those problems.

A simple introduction of who she is would help bridge the reader into her About page, or even her Services page if she chose to go that route.

I think the same advice can be applied to her About page.

Right now, the first thing you read on her About page is a list of links to the sections in her About page.

Starting with an introduction that identifies who she works with and the issues they face could help remind potential clients who Starla works with and if she can help them with their challenges.

I’d love to see the sub-navigation links moved over into the right sidebar, if possible. This way the user is lead on a journey into her About page to learn more about Starla.

Final Thoughts

I think Starla has done a great job, setting a foundation of content for her potential clients.

She’s added specific pages for each of her services, which is a great idea to help SEO and an amazing way to provide value to her website viewers.

I’d encourage her to take it even further and see if she could make those service pages even more informative. This would showcase her expertise, provide value to her readers and could help her SEO as well.

And on the topic of SEO…

Blogging could be a great way to increase Starla’s pageviews. It would help her rank for more keywords and also provide more content for her potential clients to get to know Starla more and see her expertise.

For more on the benefits of having a blog on your therapy website, check out this post: Does Your Therapy Website Really Need a Blog?

Should could also make sure that her location is included in her meta titles and descriptions to capitalize on folks searching for keywords, such as “psychotherapy Andersonville”.

I’m starting something new today on the CMTW Blog! Each month, I plan to video review a private practice website from my audience, giving them a web designer’s initial thoughts and hopefully help them make some improvements and overcome some challenges.

Our first review is for Stephanie Konter’s website at http://www.stephaniekontercounseling.com.

You can watch the review by clicking on the video below:

I think Stephanie has done an excellent job creating a website for her counseling practice.

It’s clean and also well-organized. The navigation makes total sense to me and I had no problem finding information within her website.

My overall feedback for the website can really be summed up by encouraging Stephanie to focus on the potential client she’s trying to reach.

Adding a sentence to her homepage about who she helps and what she helps them achieve will help her website viewers quickly know that they are in the right place and what Stephanie does.

I love that she has a call to action right at the bottom of the homepage and I think she can sprinkle that around her website even more.

Folks will end up on different pages on the website, depending on what they’re seeking therapy for, so having that opportunity to connect on each page is a great thing to include.

I talk a little more about this in this post here: 12 Ways to Grow Your Therapy Practice with User Experience Design

Driving Traffic to Your Therapy Website

I asked each person to let me know about their biggest challenge they were facing with their website.

In the video I said that Stephanie was having trouble driving traffic to her website. But to clarify, she was specifically having trouble getting people to her counseling website from a Google search.

So I’ll expand a little on what I said in the video above.

Stephanie has been consistently adding blog posts to her website and I highly encourage her to continue doing that.

Blogging is a great way to expand on the amount of keywords that appear within your website, giving you more opportunities to be found in search engines.

I would encourage Stephanie to continue blogging, thinking about her potential clients and the issues they face, making sure her titles contain keywords when relevant.

I say “when relevant” because you should be writing blogs for people to read, not for Google to read.

Google is smart and will know when you’re keyword stuffing.

So be consistent, write for that ideal client, and I know you’ll see an increase in traffic.

For more on the benefits of blogging for therapists, check out this post here.

Another great way to increase your traffic from search engines is to create custom meta-descriptions for each page and blog post you create.

A meta-description is that short (1-2 sentences) you seen in search results that tell you what the page is about.
You want these descriptions to contain keywords and be enticing enough for someone to want to click on the link.

Jeff Guenther from The Practice Academy has an awesome resource all about meta-descriptions for your private practice website here.

Definitely check it out.
