Qmars Imandel
WHY THERAPIST WEBSITES?
Our Story.
Hi. My name is Qmars Imandel and I’m the founder of TherapyRising.
I’d like to take a moment to share my story with you about how I came to create a web design service for therapists, and why I think therapists truly are peoples’ heroes.
IN THE BEGINNING
I had a traumatic childhood.

Although I came from a loving family, as a child I was bullied, sexually abused, beaten up in fights at school, and went through a difficult abandonment experience, all prior to my teenage years. Not knowing how to cope with the distress, I started self-medicating to escape from the negative feelings.

I continued to numb myself with various substances throughout my teens and twenties, not really being aware of what I was doing or why; I thought it was normal. Although I had so much internal conflict, I still managed to function well enough to finish college and create a web design company.

As I became older I started going through painful cycles of depression and anxiety, not knowing why it was happening or how to cope with it. It wasn’t until I became 30 that I started connecting my traumatic childhood with the cycles of addiction, depression, anger and sadness that I was experiencing as an adult.

I had a traumatic childhood.
BECOMING AWARE OF TRAUMA, THERAPY, AND HEALING
BECOMING AWARE OF TRAUMA, THERAPY, AND HEALING
My wife suggested to me that there may be a connection between my childhood trauma and the challenges I was experiencing, and that perhaps therapy would be helpful.
I was becoming a father soon, and I felt a deep need to heal and end the vicious cycles I was going through.
STARTING MY HEALING JOURNEY WITH THERAPY
How therapy changed my life.

I decided to work with a psychotherapist and get professional help, so I started searching online to find a therapist to work with. I wanted to find out if there was a connection between my traumatic childhood and the cycles of addiction and depression I was going through as an adult. I found my therapist online and we started working together. That’s when things started to change for me. That’s when my life started getting better. My therapist truly changed my life. Through talk therapy and EMDR I was able to process unresolved emotional conflict that I had avoided and pushed away for years and years. It was through the insights, empathy, and emotional transmissions I received from my therapist that allowed me to start healing.

How therapy changed my life
SOUL SEARCHING ON THE SPIRITUAL PATH
SOUL SEARCHING ON THE SPIRITUAL PATH
Before psychotherapy, I often felt lost.

I was going through difficult cycles of depression and addiction, not knowing why or how to change it.

I often felt as if I was moving through life in the dark.

I couldn’t focus well. I didn’t have knowledge of, or access to, my internal resources. I often couldn’t cope with stress. I felt empty inside. I did things half heartedly. Almost every day was a struggle, while to the outside world I seemed to be doing well. I felt as if I was somehow broken inside.

THEN THINGS CHANGED
Therapy turned the lights on.
I began to see the connection between my past and my present. I started recognizing my emotional patterns. I started to recognize when I would get triggered and what choices I would make to run away and distract myself. I started to work with the painful feelings instead of numbing myself from them. I started dealing with my stuff. No more substances. I started being able to focus. I developed emotional resilience and gained access to my internal resources. I started being kinder to myself and to others. I started doing things wholeheartedly. Slowly, I started becoming whole again. The therapy worked! But of course, I’m still a work in progress.
Therapy turned the lights on
PASSIONATE ABOUT HELPING THERAPISTS
Why I created TherapyRising.

When I was searching online to find a therapist to work with, I noticed that most of the therapist websites I visited could use a lot of improvement. Almost all of them didn’t look professional, they didn’t represent the therapist well, and they weren’t inspiring; they could be so much better than they were.

After getting such great results with therapy, I realized how important and powerful therapy can be and how significant the work therapists do actually is. They help people heal. They truly change people’s lives and make the world a better place, and I knew I could help them attract and inspire new clients by creating great websites for them.

THERAPYRISING WAS BORN
That’s when I decided to create a second web design company serving private practice therapists exclusively.

I knew that my company had the web design and SEO skills and experience to help therapists have a beautiful online presence with a website that looks professional, attracts clients, and inspires them both aesthetically and with content that speaks to their needs. I knew others can get help and benefit from therapy, just like I did. It gives me great joy to know that my company can contribute and serve therapists because I know that every time a person receives therapy, their life becomes better. And the world becomes a little bit better too.

I truly believe that therapists are peoples’ heroes. Thank you for doing what you do. Your work is so important and needed in the world and I’m happy to be on your team, making a positive impact.

Sincerely,
Qmars Imandel

I FINALLY HAVE A WEBSITE THAT REFLECTS MY PRACTICE

rating

I used TherapyRising to redo my website to give it more of a professional look. I was blown away with their professionalism, creativity, responsiveness, technical expertise and their understanding of what needs to be included and stressed in a therapist’s website. They have a comprehensive understanding of clinical terminology as well as graphic design. I finally feel that I have a website that reflects my practice’s goals and personality.

I switched to TherapyRising from another therapist specific site provider a couple years ago and have not looked back. The level of attention to the design and set-up were unprecedented in my experience and the product was a beautiful site that captures the essence of my practice AND has increased the number of online inquiries significantly. I emphatically recommend TherapyRising to any clinician looking for uniqueness, value and quality for their online presence!

BEAUTIFUL WORK, WE LOVE IT!

rating

We are a small, but growing practice. Our website was sorely lacking. Working with Qmars was quick and painless. He really listened to our themes and what direction we wanted the website to take. The website is such a step up for us. Beautiful work, we love it! They do not teach you any of this in school, so it is nice that Qmars spends time helping the therapist with their websites. Thanks so much and we hope to have a long relationship with Qmars and TherapyRising. We are certainly going to tell others about his services.

SO HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS AND GET COMPLIMENTS OFTEN

rating

My colleagues and I used a "boxed" company for years to share our private practice information, and our site was looking very stale. When we found TherapyRising, Q and his team produced a higher quality, less expensive, and much more personal site for us. We have been so happy with the results and get compliments often about the look of our website and branding. We're so happy we chose TherapyRising!

Q is the ultimate professional. He is creative, talented, reliable, and passionate about his work. Q went out of his way to understand my practice and professional goals to design a website and logo that exemplifies and defines my brand. Most other companies use one-size-fits-all templates, but Q personalized my website to fit my exact needs. He is always available if I have a question or want to make any changes. He even goes the extra mile, checking in with me on a regular basis to make sure things are running smoothly. I cannot recommend Q and his services highly enough!

THANK YOU FOR A WEBSITE THAT I AM PROUD OF!

rating

I started working with TherapyRising because I wanted a new, more professional-looking website than what I was able to create on my own. We started with one of the templates that they offer and from there, they were able to develop a website that is exactly what I wanted. They were extremely responsive to all of the changes that I wanted to make (and there were many), and we ended up with a beautiful website that represents my practice perfectly. I am truly grateful to them for giving me a website that I am proud of!

WEBSITE IS GREAT AND MANAGED WITHOUT ME DOING ANYTHING

rating

I can’t say enough great things about TherapyRising and how my website turned out thanks to the help of Qmars. The site is beautiful, gets a lot of hits and attention and I hear regularly that prospective clients loved my website, “it really spoke to me” or “resonated with me” or they just thought it was aesthetically appealing. The website is great and managed without me having to do anything. When I do need to make changes, Q is responsive and changes are made efficiently. I also have business cards made by them and they are wonderful eye catchers that match my website. I’m so happy I decided to go with TherapyRising with all the solicitors and different places you could use. It felt more personal working with Q.

ALWAYS RESPONDED PROMPTLY TO EDITS

rating

I have recommended TherapyRising to several therapists looking to update their website because Q makes it easy and affordable to get a complete website makeover and the service after website completion is stellar too! I’ve had a website through TherapyRising for over three years and he has always responded promptly to edits that are needed. He will also walk you through the steps of taking care of edits on your own if you’d prefer that too.

A GAME CHANGER FOR MY PRACTICE

rating

Clients and colleagues have both provided positive feedback about my new website! There’s also been an increase in calls from improved Google search rankings for my business! My name is Moya Mathison, and I’m a solo private practice owner and Therapist in New Jersey. When I started in private practice, I created my own website, one that I was not very proud of since it wasn’t my area of expertise. In 2020 during the pandemic, I connected with Qmars from TherapyRising, which was a game changer for my practice. Not only is my updated website and logo beautiful, but it’s also functional. The process from the initial call to the finished product was a breeze, and I felt I was in good hands from the beginning. I was initially nervous about my website being managed by others (especially on the West Coast). However, Qmars’ prompt responses and turnaround time made me feel more at ease with relinquishing this responsibility. Now I have more time to put toward the long list of tasks included with running my own business.
