Mental Health + Wellness copyWriting

save time. earn more Money. connect with your ideal Clients.



Content and copywriting for psychologists, counselors, and psychotherapists.

Authentic, ethical, and empathic content to help you stand out from the crowd.

Mental health professionals like you and I entered the field to help people suffer less and create meaningful lives. Yet, if you’re a therapist in private practice, you’ve found:

·       Clients have a hard time finding you amidst all the other therapists in your area.

·       Insurance companies pay less, reject more claims, and create new paperwork hurdles at every turn.

·       Stigma is still a thing. Most people search for answers to their mental health questions online before seeking out professional help.

All while mental health issues continue to rise in our communities.

How can you meet this need and maintain your own wellbeing - emotionally and financially?

Having a niche and a strong online presence.

Having a niche makes you stand out from the crowd. Establishing your identity helps you reach new audiences and connect with clients who align with your values and approach to healing.

Therapists who have a strong online presence can attract ideal clients while providing valuable information to those in need.

Your content needs to be flexible, timely, and information dense. Blog posts that speak to current events and trends in mental health show up in searches. Without fresh content on a regular basis, you won’t show up in the rankings, and your ideal clients won’t find you.

Not every person who comes to your website will become a client, but with up-to-date and evidence-based content, you can impact each life that lands on your page.

If your goal is help as many people as you can while avoiding feast and famine cycles, and burnout, there are few things you MUST have in place:

·       A high-quality, easy to navigate, information-packed website.

·       Smart SEO throughout your inbound marketing plan.

·       Consistency in the roll-out of your online content and marketing.

And if you’re like most mental health professionals I know (including me!), you want to do all this WHILE maintaining your integrity with content that feels true to you and not“salesy”. No small feat.

That’s where I come in.

I’m Heather, and I’m a freelance copywriter specializing in mental health and medical copywriting.

In close collaboration with you, I build an inbound marketing strategy that doesn’t “sell” people something they don’t need, but connects those already looking for help with the therapist who is the best fit for them.

You’ll connect with more clients who need your expertise and care, save time, and create more financial space to give back in ways that feel authentic to you.

You’ll do what you do best - help people heal and grow, while getting paid what this very personal work is worth.

Put simply, therapists with a strong online presence have the power to provide the best, most ethical care to clients while achieving a level of freedom and balance they desire.

Why work with me?

With so many people searching for mental health information online, words matter. A lot. Making sure content is based on current research and best practices, and connects to crisis resources when indicated is a necessity.

With education and experience in clinical mental health, higher education, and mind-body practices, I produce accessible, research based writing with heart. My sub-specialty of multicultural counseling means my work is culturally responsive and inclusive.


Marketing and website copywriting for holistic, integrative, and functional medicine providers.

I grow your online presence so you don’t have to.

As a healer dedicated to holistic, integrative, and functional approaches to health, you know that:

  • Insurance companies often don’t value or understand the work you do, leading to claim headaches and hours wasted on justification and disputes.

  • You spend less time with patients and loved ones than you want to.

And these efforts to provide accessible and quality care often lead to more time in the office and less income!

Insurance policies and reimbursements change on a dime.

Colleagues are either throwing in the towel and heading back to the relative security of hospitals and corporate clinics or recreating the wheel altogether with concierge and other membership based clinics.

These newer models promise freedom to practice medicine that prioritizes patient care and limits provider burnout. It’s no wonder more and more people are taking the leap.

Whether you want to stay on insurance panels, transition to a membership based practice, or expand a concierge practice you’ve already opened - inbound marketing is essential to your growth.

Particularly because more than 80% of patients look up providers online before scheduling, showing up near the top for Google searches in your area is ESSENTIAL.

To connect with the patients who connect best with your methods of healing, you need the same things any other small business owner needs:

  • Smart SEO throughout your website and blog.

  • An information-packed website to establish your authority in your niche.

  • Timeliness and consistency of new content.

All of this takes time. Time you likely don’t have after a day of seeing patients, completing paperwork, and managing a business.

This is where I can help.

I’m Heather, a freelance copywriter specializing in medical and mental health copywriting.

Together, we craft an inbound marketing plan that emphasizes your expertise and provides value to your readers while converting these same folks into patients and customers.
