"Helping people who help people"

I just found another gorgeous therapy website design.  Of course design is like art…HIGHLY Personal.  I’m unabashedly a fan of the color red.  I even have a rule in life that if I am trying to decide between two items (usually clothing), to ALWAYS chose the red.  Colors are very personal.  But therapy is also very personal!  Does your website reflect who you are and the emotions you want people to feel when they see it?

The issue of design relates to what you want if you chose to grow.  This is a simple website, so there may be issues in growing bigger (more content = more traffic, as a general rule.) We had to destroy what was a very simple, neutral The First Dance website 3-4 years ago because we severely outgrew the design.

Here is a really good website tip!  If you EVER find a website you absolutely love, contact the webmaster about buying the website design.  The amount they want may be a bit shocking ($1,000+) but it IS their intellectual property and they worked very hard for it.  And trust me…if you like it, it may be well worth owning it for 1K rather than going with a new webdesign that may not at all look like what you want and may take months.  You will still have costs of getting your content up and some of the design is “images” that will need to be changed according to what you want.  But even if the webmaster who make the site is a bit of a flake, you already have most of the work DONE so delays won’t take nearly as long as it did for the first person who commissioned the site.  Plus you can ask the owner of the site whether they liked working with their webmaster.
