Your career as a therapist requires a lot of emotional labor and if you dismiss that fact, well you too can find yourself in a bit of a slump. So, what can you do if your slump is less about a lack money and more about the emotional side of the work?
Most therapy directories include hundreds, if not thousands, of options within a geographic region and despite having keywords and a search bar, to the average person, there’s not much differentiating your style of therapy from someone else’s. That’s why it is vital to put in the time, energy, and effort into crafting your therapy directory profile and NOT make a common mistake that most therapists make when crafting an online presence.

The Summer Slump is a seasonal occurrence that some (not all) therapists in private practice experience when less and less people are scheduling therapy appointments.

The simplest way to spend less time marketing your private practice is to repurpose your content. You know those creative moments ebb and flow in relationship to what’s happening for you beyond the session, so don’t let another day pass by before you start putting into place the simplest way to save more time and conserve your energy. Besides wouldn’t you rather be doing something else with your time than trying to figure out what to say next. Good news is you don’t have to!
Keep in mind that although we have been blessed with the gift of gab and enjoy making space for people’s lived experiences, that doesn’t mean the lovely person reaching out for a therapy consultation is as comfortable or confident with that space as you are.
