How to Optimize Your Therapist Profile

We’d like to help make sure your therapist profile is optimized for search. The more information you enter, the more opportunities you have for showing up in search and for converting profile visitors into clients.

When you add or update a profile, you’ll enter (or update) content using the checkboxes, drop-down menus, or text boxes provided. Completing the profile should take about 15 minutes. When finished you can choose to save and preview or to submit. If needed you can save your profile and return to it later through your provider dashboard to finish and submit.

If you would like assistance filling out your profile, just let us know. You can make an appointment with our team and we’ll be happy to help.

  • Take the photo is clothes you would wear to see a client or working in the office

  • Have a neutral background (nature, wall, bookshelf, office)
