Praise, Reviews and Success Stories

"I'm so excited about the new book, Elements of a Successful Therapeutic Business. Kate Mackinnon and co-author Robyn Scherr help practitioners define and develop a successful therapeutic business that adapts, thrives, and grows with you. I love how they helped me define success in terms that align with my calling and offered truly helpful tips and strategies for growing my business in a manner that works for me. My first response to this book was enormous relief - finally, someone was talking to me about how to support and grow my business in a way that is both spiritually aligned and practically effective. Thank you, Kate and Robyn!"

"The clear and valuable information in Elements of a Successful Therapeutic Business has been a game-changer for my business. Kate and Robyn have created a practical guide that invites me to explore and delve deep within myself to discover what is meaningful for me. As a result, I have built a business container that feels good to me. I keep the business hours I want, provide treatment to the populations that resonate with me, and have an established rate that supports my worth. I highly recommend Elements of a Successful Therapeutic Business not only for practitioners in their early stages of business development but for experienced practitioners searching to reboot their businesses."

“If you are self-employed and looking for business resources, I highly suggest checking out this resource...that will get you thinking about how you want to hold and grow your business container in a way that supports you so that you can better support your clients."

Unwinding Journey

"Elements of a Successful Therapeutic Business makes the process of building a business manageable and accessible, supporting folks to build business that reflect who they are and what they need and want.  Instead of giving rules or some universal format, it provides ways to think about business logistics that are thoughtful to the kinds of businesses we’re trying to create and the individuality of the practitioners.  They encourage everyone’s success, knowing that supporting the success of all therapeutic practitioners supports the health and wellness of the larger community.  This is a unique and invaluable resource for practice building for therapists of all kinds."

-Rebecca Goettsche, PhD, Clinical Psychologist

"I was impressed with how carefully Robyn and Kate had considered what to include in their book - many topics (anatomy of a talk, unearned intimacy, ethical considerations) might not normally be included in a primer like this, but they skillfully offered important information and insights that opened my eyes to the importance of considering issues that I might have otherwise ignored. In my opinion, this book is a must-read for anyone who wants to avoid the all-too-common experience of finishing a training filled with excitement, only to exhaust themselves trying to make a business work, and who wants instead to set themselves up for success. Robyn and Kate do all of this with kindness, clarity, and a firm stake in the ground for each of us to create a thriving, fulfilling business that supports us and our clients in so many important ways."

"This book doesn’t leave a stone unturned! It is filled with many valuable tools to help develop, shape, and build a therapeutic business. As a family childcare provider of 27 years, I could relate to many elements in this book. This book was an excellent refresher for checking in with myself about my current business container. It also provided new ideas for growth and expansion in sharing my wisdom and skills. I think this book would not only benefit CranioSacral therapists, but other business owners such as clinical therapists, childcare providers, hair stylists, tutors, and any other entrepreneurs offering a specific service to the public, as well. Kate and Robyn did a superb job in sharing their knowledge, experiences, and wisdom to aide others in their business endeavors."

-Renee Dangler,

"I was honored to be one of the first people to read this amazing book! If you have a small business- Cranial Sacral, Reiki, Massage... all of them ... read this book to help you go to the next level of your business! I just wish I could have read it when I was starting mine! Thank you, Kate Mackinnon & Robyn Scherr!"

“Robyn and Kate show us how to find a consistent joy in our businesses...Elements is a very practical and useful guide for both newer and established practitioners.”


-Ryan Hallford BCST, teacher and founder of The Craniosacral Podcast

"Every entrepreneur should read Elements of a Successful Therapeutic Business! It gives you all the information you need to create a successful business, which both Robyn and Kate have done magnificently. More than the tools to create a business, it is also a guide to take care of yourself in the process. And to me that is priceless."
