Your website is private, you'll need to either publish it or add a site wide password so that it can be viewed:

Hi Lisa, below I am trying to be informative and give actionable feedback to help, I don't mean this to come across too critical, I completely understand that you're new to this. This forum is for anyone needing help or advice from other Squarespace users, anyone that reads your post can respond.

My first thought for the top of the website is that the imagery is very stark, the orange text colour loud and somewhat hard to read. I'm not sure that's the feeling you want to evoke when someone reaches your website. From a language perspective, the first words I read are "invalidated, unsupported, judged, misunderstood, harmful", when I reach your website I want to know what you are offering to do for me, succinctly, so with as little effort on my part as the reader I know if I want to keep reading. A softer warmer colour palette, softer warmer friendlier images and an informative about your business, positive initial statement would go a long way to improving the website and initial view. There are other tweaks I could suggest if you'd like.

I hope that's helpful!

Hi Ziggy,

I appreciate all of the feedback.  I will spend more time on it this weekend, think about your suggestions and how to implement them. I am a good counselor but not such a good business person. Well thats where you come in!

I am definitely open to hearing more about your ideas and in the meantime I will buy you a coffee. Geez, thats the least I could do for your help!

Thank you again.

Lisa

Oh and BTW, I am going to add a photo to the main page. I just havent had a chance to do that yet but that is my plan. Something a little more professional and hopefully warm. 

What do you think about my ohter pic? I am want to appear approachable and not stuffy--since I am not stuffy so I thought that showed a more playful side to me. 

Any feedback is appreciated. Constructive criticism is how I grow as a person so you definitely dont have to be cautious about the things you say. Unless you tell me you hate my face--then I may be a bit offended since I cant do anything about that 🙂

Shouldn't be a problem!

If you want to set up a call for a chat about website strategy and possible improvements then we can do that next week.

I do like the minty green better than the orange for your website, but mine is very orange!

What would it cost to have a phone call with you?  I am reading about SEO, is that something that you can help with also?

No charge for a call, happy to discuss SEO and how I might be able to help with that, feel free to set up a chat here:
