My Story

As a therapist for over 35 years, I had struggled to keep a consistent flow of referrals. I decided to do something different, and I realized I had to make a major financial investment in my internet presence to insure long term stability and prosperity for my practice. It has worked.

In addition to myself, I have developed a model for helping therapists grow their practices without taking insurance. Our group has a niche focus on couples therapy and marriage counseling.

Over the past 15 years, my website, YourMarriageCounselor.com has attained a significant internet presence in New Jersey. It appears on the first page in several places on Google and other major search engines. To accomplish that I work closely with a specialist Google marketing   and have an aggressive AdWords campaign, regularly update my site, and make use of YouTube, blogs, press releases, articles, and radio interviews.The result of these efforts generates about 4 – 7 inquiries a day, providing me with on the average about 30 hours a week or more (five day week) of clients for my practice, and also supplies the therapists that work with me with referrals as well. Though there is no guarantee, the number of hours that a therapist gains from this internet effort can be as much as 5 hours a week, of course depending upon retention.

Many therapists are not in a position to invest 1000’s of dollars a month, so the solution that I’ve come up with is to invite other therapists to grow along with me.

What therapists gain when they come aboard:

1. Each therapist has an exclusive area, around the area where their practice is located.

2. We launch a local internet campaign for a therapist which can include:

  • Listing them on our website with both their biography and picture.
  • Posting their own articles to enhance their presence on the site, and/or post reviews from their clients.
  • A 2 to 3 minute video that can also be connected to their biography. By the way, the reason a biography and picture are so important is that some of the referrals have gone directly to my site where therapists are listed and actually ask for a therapist that they connected their feelings to from their biography.

3. I or my Office Manager answers client’s phone calls ourselves or usually within an hour or two.

4. We contact the therapist as quickly as possible so they can return the call to the perspective client.

5. On-going regular contact with former clients.

6. Possible local marketing support. (Newspapers, Radio, & Cable T.V.)

7. At no charge to the associates, we will take credit card payments from your clients and I will put them through at my office. You will have an authorization consent form that is signed by your client each time before we run their credit or debit card. We will never run a card without the client’s signature.

8. I invite anyone who wishes to participate in additional services that I can provide (e.g. Anger Management, Jump Start Sessions, and a new program I am currently working on that will involve teaching couples negotiation skills).

9. To maintain a high quality of service, I offer free consultation about difficult cases.


Reimbursement for Therapists (independent contractors)

I hire folks as independent contractors at $50 below their customary fee, so if they bill $150 I pay them $100 per meeting and they bill $150.

How we provide a quality service with a strong business model

To provide a quality service, I answer all initial inquiries personally. I answer the phone myself, return calls within an hour or two, This rapid response both recognizes the urgency of the call and helps assure that the client does not go elsewhere for the service, and most importantly, leaves them with a good impression that someone will be available to meet their needs once they become a client.

When I talk to the referral, I send them to a therapist most convenient to them. I also ask the prospective client to take a look at therapists’ biographies and pictures which are listed on our page, YourMarriageCounselor.com. I then call the therapist and let them know about a referral. I also provide a prospective client with a therapist’s telephone number and encourage them to call.

I recognized that unless you have a strong internet presence it is difficult to use just our talent and training and still be able to earn a consistently comfortable living.

I am looking for high quality therapists who feel comfortable and enjoy working with couples.

By working together we both can build our practices.

If you are interested, please give me a call at 732-246-8484 or email me at drmarty@comcast.net.

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

I look forward to speaking with you.
