Counseling Website Inspiration: 15 of the Best Websites for Therapists

Finding Great Therapist Website Design Inspiration can be a Struggle...

When clients search for us they want to feel inspired, understood, or comforted.  But most therapist websites leave them confused and chilly.  

When I work with therapists to develop a website I want you to have strong mental health websites to draw inspiration from.  I often start with therapists by creating a vision board of aspirational sites.  But sometimes it's hard to find great inspiration.

The list below includes some of my favorites from around the web.   

If you're working with a website designer to create your own counseling website I highly recommend creating your own "sites I like" list.  Alongside it do include a few reasons you like the site to help the design team create something specific to you (you can see my examples here).

If you have any questions on this process,  please send me a message- I am happy to help you along!
