If you’re dealing with Personal Health Information (PHI), and as therapists, we are, it’s important to use an email that is in compliance with HIPPA.

G Suite is Google’s set of really useful applications including Gmail, Google Drive (for storing and sharing files,) Google Docs and Calendar, which is offered for $5/month per user.
Searching online for products and services has become a daily activity for most of us. We all use search engines to find the information we need before deciding to take an action. Your clients are doing the same thing when they start looking for a therapist. Once you start understanding how search engines work, search marketing can be a valuable tool to use to get exposure for your practice.
