SOME KIND WORDS FROM PAST CLIENTS

TESTIMONIALS

If you want someone who is professional and creative to get your project done – then Cris is the one!

Professional all the way. Consistent. Structured. Reliable (you get what you are promised at the time you are promised). Creative. Responsive.

It was a significant investment, for sure. But by the time I got to Cris at Growing Therapists, I had tried two other services that were more “affordable” and ended up with a lot of frustration, money, and time lost, without being able to get the quality work I wanted.

The investment was absolutely worth it! I finally found a professional who was able to do the work I needed them to do and who was guiding me through this process.

It was to exciting watching it come together!!! The template that was guiding me through the content creation was very helpful. It made me think carefully about my message to my ideal client and provided structure.

I liked that Cris had approved/vetted resources, like the company that assisted me in writing the terms and conditions for my website, for example. And every time I needed a resource associated with my website, Cris had referrals to provide. She guided me in “what’s next” and I really like that she offers monthly maintenance!

I love my new website and I wish I had hired Cris from the beginning, it would have saved me a lot of headache, time, and money!

I am SO happy that I hired Growing Therapists for both my logo and web design services!

The investment was completely worth it and then some! As an entrepreneur (and mom-preneur), I was starting at the very beginning with my own ideas and vision but lacking the know how for implementation. Cris thoughtfully and skillfully guided me in the process, and the outcome was perfect.

I appreciate that Cris gave me six different logo designs to choose from after assessing what style made the most sense for my business, and it was hard to choose just one. So I chose two!

In the design process for the website, I loved having Cris’ questions to guide how I created the content for the website. This process really helped me get my message across in a manner that feels representative to who I am.

Cris is responsive, efficient, and easy to work with- I would hire her again in a heartbeat.

What would have taken probably weeks to accomplish, Cris helped me to accomplish in days, and she made the process stress free, even fun.

I’d be happy to talk to anyone about my experience with Cris as a logo and web designer and wholeheartedly recommend Growing Therapists.

Cris was one of the best, if not the best, professionals I’ve ever worked with.

I liked how Cris honed in on the right designs for my logo and website quickly. Cris has a wonderful ability to let your copy “pop” to draw the reader in. So many designer want to spend months creating the site, I needed a faster turn around and Cris was able to deliver that and still exceed my design expectations. The other benefit was her payment structure. Her price is reasonable and it is divided for flexibility. Cris quickly focused on who I was and what I wanted so I immediately felt trust towards her and a positive sense that she was authentic and knew what she was doing. She always responded quickly and the process was transparent. Because of that, I never worried about the site, I was just excited. Cris is inspiring, transparent and provides a quick turnaround. Thanks again, Cris!

You are the best. THE BEST.

The investment was absolutely, positively worth it. Working with Cris was so streamlined and efficient. I always felt heard and respected throughout the entire process, and she was always willing to listen and address all my thoughts and ideas. She took the time to thoroughly get to know what I was looking for in a website and executed it to perfection! It was by far one of the most positive experiences I have had professionally and I highly, without any reservations, recommend her services. If you are interested in having a beautiful, professional, marketable website that is done in a time efficient and professional manner, then you should hire Cris today. She is worth every single penny you will invest.

I am so proud of my site and I want to share it with everyone. I feel confident that this website is going to continue assisting my private practice to grow and flourish.

I can not speak highly enough of how efficient and thorough Cris is. She turned my site around in a record time…less than a week! This is unheard of! Just last week I had zero online presence and now I have one of the most gorgeous and informative websites I could have ever dreamed of. I am utterly amazed at Cris’s work ethic, her professionalism, and the ease in which she did it all.

Working with Cris was an incredibly positive experience. Her knowledge and experience were immeasurable. Her professionalism is top notch. From the very first contact with Cris to every step along the way, she was transparent and thorough. She made this process so easy and fun.

I would strongly recommend Cris to others. She is incredibly professional with a keen eye for design. Her work is impeccable and nothing will slip through the cracks when working with her. In my opinion, her knowledge of web design far supersedes others in the field.

If you want to feel secure in the product you are receiving, have your website launched in a time efficient manner, and feel completely supported throughout the entire process, then you should call Cris today. She is absolutely wonderful to work with and her years of experience and knowledge will shine through every single step of the way.

The purchase was 100% worth it!

Cris is the “tech-y” I dream of being, while also being incredibly personable and helpful. I was concerned about how much time it might take me to provide all of the information required for my website. Cris was very flexible and is incredibly knowledgable. Her guidance while making design choices was priceless, and she was willing to go the distance when any troubleshooting was required. I appreciated the step-by-step approach, which kept the process from feeling overwhelming. She took the time to understand what I was needing from my website, and offered clear guidance throughout our time working together. I would definitely recommend Cris’s services, to clients from all sorts of backgrounds and especially to therapists (as a matter of fact, I’ve already given her name to a number of other professionals!).

I highly recommend Growing Therapists.

I was interested in trying to create my own website on WordPress, but after a while, I realized I didn’t have the knowledge or expertise to do so. I reviewed several different options of therapist website designers and decided to work with Cris. It has been a great experience. Cris listened to what I envisioned and wanted for my website. She guided me through all the steps I needed to take to be a part of the process, yet when I was stuck or unsure of how to get my message across she provided helpful, insightful feedback and suggestions. Because she, too, is a therapist, she understands how important it is for me to reach the potential clients to whom I believe I can be the most helpful. Cris helped create a website I feel very proud of. Read more…

My new website has transformed my practice.

I wasn’t sure it was a worthwhile investment to hire a professional web designer. I thought about building a site myself on Wix instead of a big financial investment upfront. The expense was worth it. I am so happy to have such a beautiful and functional website, and I ended up with something I never could have created on my own. I’m also happy I didn’t need to deal with the hassle or stress of making my own website. Cris created a custom training manual so I know how to add blog posts and won’t mess up my site. I would highly recommend Cris. She is a therapist herself, so she really gets our field and can make suggestions about content that other developers wouldn’t understand. She works quickly and creates beautiful websites that are functional, unique, and have made a big difference in attracting my ideal clients. Read more…

I feel like I won the lottery of web designers!

My business coach sent me links of people who create websites. I knew nothing about Cris. The investment was so worth it on so many levels. I LOVE my site. I have a site that truly represents the coach I am. Her encouragement, expertise, compassion, and joy helped me to relax and trust that it would all get done. A perfect balance of what I coach…love and leadership. I would recommend Cris because she is an excellent communicator deeply sensitive to the needs of others and of being of optimum service. She has a very beautiful way of being direct and truthful and also encouraging the client to trust themselves. I am incredibly grateful to have found Cris. Read more…

Cris knows how to create websites for therapists.

I would recommend Cris and her design services. I contacted her initially on 2/21/18, and my website is already launched on 3/7/18. I couldn’t be more pleased! I was concerned about the price given that I am new to private practice. I checked out a lot of therapist’s websites. Most of them do the job, but they look uninspiring. After looking into all other options, I decided to invest in a professionally designed website instead of the burden of creating my own. I can thus focus on what I do best – therapy. Cris created a very elegant and beautiful story-telling website for me. It really was worth it. Cris is technically savvy and made the whole process very smooth. Read more…

You completely got my vision.

I struggled SO MUCH with writing about myself. I never knew how hard that would be. So having you write my content with my own words included and embedded, was priceless to me. You were able to articulate when I had trouble finding the words. I was also worried my point of view wouldn’t come across if I trusted someone else to take over, but that couldn’t be further from the truth. For me personally building a website has been on the list of things to do forever. I knew it was important for private practice marketing but there was one hurdle after another, including the content writing. Giving myself permission to hand it over to someone else was truly a gift i gave myself (just so happened was around Christmas time, too. 🙂 I’m so happy I don’t have to stress about it anymore. Everyone I show my site to is so impressed and only has great things to say. I don’t regret it for a second!

Cris wrote in my style but made it sound a million times better than I ever would have.

I was concerned about the price [for content creation services] but found that it was well worth it. I found that I was able to narrow my niche more with Cris’ guidance and have a clearer picture of my ideal client. Cris is very professional. She responds quickly to emails and had the final copy for my web pages within a week.

There are so many reasons I’d recommend Cris.

Like most private practice newbies, I was particularly worried about costs but quickly realized that most seasoned therapists recommended having a professional design your website for optimal results. As a therapist herself, Cris is able to design a website that is tailored specifically for therapists. The website is customized to reflect on the therapeutic relationship between a therapist and client. She was able to form a coherent and beautiful website, just the way I had envisioned it. Cris helps you explore and identify your counseling niche. Most of us come into private practice with a very broad idea of what kind of clients you want to work with. Cris helped me to explore and narrow down on my “ideal client.” I would recommend Cris not only for newbies but also for seasoned therapists who want to market themselves through a beautiful and professional website.

Quite simply, Cris rocks.

I feel fortunate to have worked with Cris in the development of a new website for La Madre.org, a nonprofit organization focused on serving impoverished communities around the world.

Cris worked as a true partner to affect much more than just a typical “redesign” of the website. She was extremely collaborative and her keen sense of digital marketing allowed for her to not just understand how best to support the organization’s brand strategy from a web perspective–but parlay it into a cohesive social media presence.

Cris can analyze and synthesize a lot of information quickly, form her point of view with strategic recommendations, use that as a springboard for creative development AND execute.

Results were awesome.

I wasn’t sure how long it would take to create my new website and know I have a tendency to be nit-picky about tiny details to make it perfect. Website came up and looked terrific very rapidly. You reacted quickly to my nits and offered lots of positive suggestions as we zeroed in on the best design — even though I thought I knew what I wanted in advance. I felt that the collaboration (and no nonsense) in our dialogues about the best way to address issues was fun, rewarding and yielded the best possible result. (I also liked the rave reviews I was getting from customers and friends who saw the website as it began and evolved. I took the compliments personally, even though you did all the work.) The best benefit is the quality. The site works… it always works… without problems. You are collaborative and quick with helpful suggestions whenever a question or issue arises. I recommend you because of the speed, quality and reasonable price.

If you want your website to look inviting and professional and your design experience to be personal and attentive, then Growing Therapists is for you.

Since I was just starting out in private practice and building my caseload, I was primarily concerned with the initial expense. However, compared to other web design services, Cris’s services were very affordable. I am very pleased with how my website turned out — it conveys exactly what I was wanting in my website. I definitely feel the investment was worth it. I appreciated how personable and professional Cris was during the design experience. She was very prompt to answer any questions or concerns I shared and was very clear about what I could expect at each stage. I appreciate how Cris’ website designs are unique and set apart from other typical therapist website designs. I also appreciate the attention she gives to her clients. Cris is very easy to work with, she is easy to talk to, professional, & prompt. Her processes and paperwork are easy to follow, and she makes it very easy for the client to provide the content. I would highly recommend Cris to design your website. Cris, thanks so much for being of my journey as I get started in private practice. I began this endeavor with much trepidation, but you have helped me to feel more comfortable and confident about launching.

I hope to be able to use Cris for other online services because I love her work so much.

I think the investment was totally worth it. My site is professional, unique, and feels like me. And I didn’t feel overly overwhelmed as Cris was really clear in her directions and time frames and it didn’t feel too demanding. You created an awesome logo, I was able to create a mailing list and newsletter which I’ve wanted to do for a long time and set up my online scheduler on my website. Cris is clear, collaborative, organized and obviously knows her stuff. It felt like as early as from the consult, she was able to nail exactly what kind of therapist I am and what I love. I would absolutely recommend Cris. I trust Cris to do a good job and to help people represent themselves well. I think my website speaks to the quality of her work.

You are efficient, get stuff done quickly, have an eye for detail, and do great work!

I LOVE my website. I enjoyed working with you and seeing my brand come to life online. You are very quick to respond, to make changes and have good ideas on how to make things work aesthetically. I have recommended you multiple times to colleagues. You are the best.

We have a beautiful website crucial to our marketing strategy that’s worth every penny.

The investment was absolutely worth it. You did amazing work on such a quick timeline. I heard you on Allison Puryear’s podcast, and I could tell you were very knowledgeable. I looked at your website and got your free 16 Top Therapist Website Mistakes Checklist, which I thought had such great information in it. Then when we spoke on the phone for a consultation about my situation, I had no hesitations about moving forward with your services.

I loved how organized you were with clear communication. Having been through past design experiences that were really lacking in this area, I appreciated this the most. I knew the process and I knew exactly what was needed from me and where to put it. It really left the communication to just be about the design instead of me asking questions about the process. It made for such a smooth experience.

You’re so knowledgeable and current with your designs as well as new regulations that we would have had no idea how to manage on our own. And I love that you’re also a therapist. It makes relating to the content and images so much easier, and you were so reassuring when we had any struggles with copy or just generally around growing this group practice.

I loved how you made us feel like our opinions were valid and respected while also pushing us a little on the design. It was such a great balance that we appreciated very much. And, just to mention again, the organization of the process makes for such a pleasant and smooth experience, especially for something that can feel so daunting.

I would absolutely highly recommend your design services to any therapist in need of a beautiful website. The process of working with you is so streamlined, you’re very easy to work and communicate with, and the timeline to get the site launched was unbelievably fast.

We can’t thank you enough for your kindness and for creating this beautiful website for us. We feel so proud to have it to represent our business, and we know it will be the most important piece to our marketing strategy.
