Features & Benefits

Becoming a member of Counseling Washington’s Network has many benefits. Each of the 6 listing types displays specific information about your services and offerings and provides an easy way for potential clients to reach you.

  • Promote your services to potential clients and/or the counseling industry locally.

  • Choose from 2 general public listing types – Counselor Profile, Therapy Group Listing. (Foreign Language Mini-Listing and Crime Victim Compensation Provider listings are included as a part of your Counselor Profile where applicable.)

Counseling Washington offers you access to promote your services to two different marketplaces.  The first is potential clients.  With Counseling Washington you can showcase your private practice by creating a Counselor Profile.  Additional Counselor Listing Advantages include:

  • You can add a second office location within your counselor listing if you have and second office you practice from at no additional charge!

  • You can add a 2nd Language Profile to your counselor listing at no extra charge! If you have a counselor listing, you speak a second language fluently and are able to provide counseling  in this language proficiently, this is a great way to set yourself apart from others!

  • You can also add a CVCP listing to your counselor listing at no additional charge. Not all counselors have this credential so why not add this to your repertoire? It is a great way to show you can provide this service!

Counselor profiles provide a complete overview of your private practice and highlight your specialties.  Potential Clients have the ability to better understand your business and get to know you in greater detail by checking your location, reading about your counseling philosophy, perusing the issues you can help them with, reviewing your treatment approaches, qualifying their insurance information and much more!  

Maximize your time and effort by offering a therapy group for clientele who are looking for a peer group environment discussing similar issues. Don’t have enough interest or know how to get a group started? Many therapists create a listing just to generate interest and when they have enough persons to start a group, they sure up a meeting time and place. Both interest-generating and secured group are two ways to make the most of your time and expertise! It would only take one group to more than offset the cost of an ad! Both approaches are easy to set up with Counseling Washington and keep in mind; you can edit the listing as things progress. It is a monthly subscription and the listing can start out as interest-generating and can easily turn into multiple groups.

Counseling Washington also offers you the unique ability to promote services to others in the counseling industry.  This is the second marketplace made available to you by joining our network.  

  • Choose from 4 different, counseling industry listing types.  Create a Washington State Approved Supervisor Listing, Counselor-related Job Opening Listings; Workshop/Training Listings for Counselors and Office Space Listings for Counselors.

  • Participate in blog posts and/or submit an article to publish on the site to open additional communication with others in your profession.

Utilizing forms helps you by tracking how your clients are trying to contact you and protecting you from unwanted email spam at the same time.
