“But Anyone Can Build A Website…”


It’s true, there’s lots of bright and shiny tools out there that make it look easy. But once the marketing fluff blows away and reality sets in, building a website on your own is time consuming and frustrating.


But what if you had the best of both worlds? What if you were given complete control over your site and trained on how to update it without having the headache of building it yourself?

What if you don’t want to learn about CSS, HTML, backups, security, themes, trouble shooting, hosting and domain registration, how to deal with photos, writing for the web, search engine optimization and more?

That is where I come in. I love all of this stuff and will do it for you. I can guarantee you it will be a fun experience and you’ll be totally psyched on what we come up with.

I love my clients and I love helping them tell their story in a compelling way so they can help more people!

First Impressions Matter

For many people, picking up the phone to call a therapist, doctor or holistic healer is a very vulnerable move.

How they react to your website matters. Is it inviting, warm, caring and trustworthy? Or ambivalent, or even worse, non existent?


How many decisions have you made personally based on a quick skim of a webpage?

I love helping therapists and healers like you put your best foot forward by creating a truly customized site that appeals to your ideal audience.

Why Work with Laurel?


Just like you, I believe in counseling and holistic modalities with every fiber of my being, and I know it is part of my life’s calling to use my skills in marketing to promote the people who provide it. After I was struck by a speeding car on my bike a few years ago, yoga, psychotherapy and holistic healing really helped me put myself back together, and believe it is an area of healthcare that deserves a lot more attention. I feel blessed that I’ve found a way to be of service and also make a living, and grateful for all the clients that come my way.

I completely understand what it is like to be solo entrepreneur and run a small business, and feel overwhelmed by technology.  I started Wellness Webdesign because I saw so many of my friends who are yoga teachers, massage therapists and doctors struggle to make sense of a digital space where the rules seem to change on a daily basis.

They were incredible healers and didn’t have the time and energy to learn a whole new skill-set, yet without a solid investment in their marketing strategy, they were leaving lots of money on the table. Their clients raved about them and their business grew by word of mouth, but their online presence was non-existent and without it, many potential clients weren’t willing to give them a chance.

I’ve worked in marketing for twenty years, both running my own music business, and as the marketing director for a successful outdoor retailer in Bend Oregon. I’m truly passionate about promoting wellness and helping those in the alternative health field spread the good word about the work they are doing. I’ve built sites for massage therapists, doctors, artists, yoga studios and yoga teachers, and would love to help you with your website! If all of this is feeling right for you, please fill out the form below and tell me about your business.

Tell me a little about your project...
