Just the other day when one of my therapists joined me for my doctor appointment (I wanted to give her facetime with the orthopedic surgeon) for my left shoulder.
But there was about 40 minutes wait so we had a chat before the appointment, and during that time she told me this:
Initially I brushed it off because to me, I created a platform for all the clinicians (and even my front counter) to be a pure-revenue-sharing platform with full transparency and open culture, and it’s such that only the best will be able to thrive and grow.

This is who I am, and what I do: helping therapists build meaningful, profitable, fun and social therapy businesses. Thank you to my therapy team who allows me to do what I love doing too.Back to top of page
