There’s no secret to profitability; it’s knowing how to react to and interpret your information.

(That's where we come in)

Years ago, the team realized that most of our favorite clients were from the mental health industry. As the number of therapist clients we were serving grew, we started noticing trends between those who were profitable and those who were struggling. Today, we specialize in accounting for mental health providers because that's where we can have the biggest impact on our client’s profitability, as well as the overall health of their business.


Because of how specialized we are, the team can help practice owners navigate the multitude of financial decisions that come with being a business owner. In turn, our clients can focus on what matters most—their clients & the community they serve.
