All of our assistants are provided unique training in trauma-informed care, compassionate communication, HIPAA, Counseling Theory, and Essential Intake and Assessment. Each VA is skilled in working with both youth and adult populations and knowledgeable in the field of psychology. Furthermore, each VA is trained in a wide array of marketing services and equipped to cater our services to your individualized needs. By staying on the cusp of what is relevant in marketing and media, our VAs can transition and reevaluate on a dime.
I'm nervous about having a Virtual Assistant handle vital parts of my practice. Any reassurances?
We understand that hesitation; you have put a lot of work into building your practice from the ground up! Thankfully, each of our Virtual Assistants has been carefully selected precisely for their attention to detail and passion for each project that crosses their desks. From your initial introduction all the way to the completion of a given project, your VA wants to see you and your practice flourish. Your VA will keep in touch with you as much or as little as you like and is always eager to hear your feedback on a given project.
In terms of privacy, we will sign a business associate agreement with you that protects you and your patients. All of our VAs are also extensively trained in HIPAA because your privacy and practice matters to us.
What does an "individualized strategic plan" look like?
Every practice and every therapist is different, and we want to be sure that we are building upon the foundation you have already established. Following your free consultation and initial onboarding, we will work with you to find out which services we offer are best for you. Each service we provide comes with a style survey that allows you to input your preferences in tone, topic choices, color scheme, authoritative resources, and so much more. We will then put you in touch with your Virtual Assistant, who is looking forward to getting to know you and the needs of your practice.
How can you help increase my income?
We live in a day and age where social media is one of the first points of access to a business. People hear about a company and then tend to verify the company's legitimacy by going straight to their Instagram or website, giving truth to the phrase: "First impressions are everything." By working with us to create a powerful and comprehensive marketing plan, we not only make sure your first impression is up to par to accrue potential clients, but we help you find ways to interact with your current patients on a daily basis through engaging and accessible content right at their fingertips.
We also provide a host of resources to equip you to be more confident in yourself and your practice, including a resource specifically on how to work towards passive income. Although it is a process that doesn't occur overnight, we can give you the toolset to be well on your way to making money in your sleep.
How will my VA communicate with me?
In addition to being in communication with your VA via email, your VA will touch base regularly to reevaluate your goals and set them into motion. Your practice will change as your needs and patients change, and we are ready to accommodate that at your say-so. You can always schedule time to chat with your VA as needed to chat timelines, goal reassessment, or questions you might have.
I could maybe whip up a blog post pretty fast on my own. Why are The Revitalized Therapist's content writers the way to go instead?
We have no doubt you are a great and efficient writer. But every additional marketing task that you don't particularly enjoy is a task that takes away from your time with your patients and your time to take care of yourself. Additionally, our content writers are experts in SEO-rich copy (Search Engine Optimization), increasing the likelihood that your practice will appear in search engines, and as a result, attract potential clients. Our content writers also have a knack for shaping informative-- as well as creative and captivating-- copy that is extensively researched with your specific therapy modalities and authoritative references in mind.
Why should I work with The Revitalized Therapist, as preferred to any sort of outsourced freelancer?
The Revitalized Therapist is a team comprised of therapists for therapists. Not only do we speak your language, but we understand the importance of an energized therapist and practice. When you are inundated with tasks that are necessary to your practice but draining of your time and enthusiasm for your work, you cannot show up fully for your patients and yourself. We are here to relieve you of that stress by taking those tasks off of your plate, subsequently providing you the reassurance that your practice is in the best of hands. Additionally, our VAs extensive skill sets make us a "one-stop shop." No more outsourcing different tasks to different entities, chasing down invoices, and monitoring different outcomes. With The Revitalized Therapist, it all comes from one place with one vision in mind: yours.
What do you mean by "by therapists for therapists"?
The Revitalized Therapist was founded in part by Cristina Smugala, a licensed therapist with Restoring Clarity Counseling, after she found herself burned out by the never ending to-do list to keep her practice running smoothly. She was justifiably discontent by the lack of time she had for herself and the fact that she wasn't always her best clinician self to her patients. And so, The Revitalized Therapist, was born.
Additionally, all of our VAs are either trained in clinical psychological practices or already come with the studies and skillset needed to help you effectively enhance your practice.
What is a website audit and why do I need one?
Google tends to be a harsh critic and is constantly reviewing your website to see how good the user's experience will be once they arrive there. Better scores move you up in search engine results and increase the chances that potential clients will view your site. If your site has a number of technical glitches, doesn't have SEO keywords placed in the vital web locations, lacks photo meta data, and so forth, Google won't give you and your practice a fighting chance. When you purchase our comprehensive SEO Audit + Optimization Package, we go through your site with a fine tooth comb, looking for each and every opportunity to increase your site's rankings and the subsequent odds that a potential client will visit your site and consider you an authoritative and trustworthy source worth working with. We also offer a Starter Package with similar but slightly less exhaustive measures.
I'm not quite sure what my practice needs most right now. How can I assess which Revitalized Therapist services are in my best interest at a given moment in time?

With your insights, she will create an individualized strategic marketing plan for you, as well as offer additional entrepreneurial tips from her vast scope of knowledge to help you feel better equipped!
