I help trailblazing OTs to level up in business, build stronger networks and navigate the virtual space with confidence!
Are you a therapist that's wanting to do more in women's health and family wellness?
Do you have a fire lit under you to serve women in your community but you can't figure out how to get started, how to get new clients or what programs to create?
Are you already working in women's health and you're struggling with marketing your services and bringing in more referrals?
Could you benefit from a stronger support system, a community of cheerleaders and like-minded practitioners that will guide you, inspire you and lift you up?
Do you see other practitionrs on Facebook launching online programs in women's health and you find yourself asking "Why can't I do that?"
Trust me, I get it.
In 2013, I was one of the first OTs to open a cash-based private practice with a specialty in perinatal health and family wellness.
I know about the anxiety and overwhelm that comes with doing something new and putting yourself out there.
I know what it's like to crave a stronger support system, to search for people that speak your language and can relate to your professional journey.
I know what it's like to invest thousands of dollars into continuing education and specialized training -- and still feel like you don't know anything.
I also know what it's like to struggle with marketing yourself and attract new clients (even with that specialized training that emptied your bank account!).
I've experienced the highs and lows that come with taking this road less travelled.
It's now my mission to support other therapists on this transformational journey, helping them to think outside the box in terms of professional development, service delivery and entrepreneurship!
Who is Melissa LaPointe?
I'm a consultant and online business owner that's based out of British Columbia, Canada (though I have a hard time staying in one place). With over 13 years' clinical experience as a rural practitioner, I often used technology as a means of staying connected to my clients and my colleagues. I also had my own brick & mortar business for several years, where I was burning the candle at both ends while raising a young child, managing a household and wearing all the hats. I know what it's like to be on that hamster wheel!
In the last two years, I've tansitioned away from my clinical work and and have transitioned fulltime into the online space as a coach and consultant. I now focus my time and creative energy on supporting other OTs in women's health. I support trail-blazing clinicians, content creators, researchers, coaches and entrepreneurs around the world in reducing the overwhelm, leveling up with their work and navigating the online space with confidence. It’s my mission to create a safe and supportive space for therapists to connect, ask questions, evolve in their thinking and collectively, grow the OT profession from the inside-out!
