When you’re ready to
hire a therapist as a team member
(as a 1099 independent contractor),
it’s key to have a written Agreement so you both
can feel CLEAR and COMFORTABLE about
what is an agreement for hiring a therapist as a team member?
An Agreement For Hiring a Therapist as a Team Member is an agreement for bringing a Therapist onto your team as an independent contractor (not an employee).
This Agreement is what you use when bringing a Therapist on board as a 1099 INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR. It is NOT what you use when hiring a Therapist as a full-time or part-time salaried employee of your Company.
There is a huge legal – and practical – distinction between an independent contractor and an employee. (If you want to hire a Therapist as an employee, speak with a lawyer and accountant in your state so you’ll know the employment and tax laws you must follow.)
This Agreement is a legally binding contract which spells out the services the Therapist will be providing and how and when you’ll pay the Therapist. It’s the best way to make sure you are on the same page right from the outset.
If you’re a licensed practitioner wanting to hire a Therapist to join your team, please talk with me (or another lawyer) before you use this Agreement. In some states, you’re REQUIRED to bring the Therapist onto your team as an employee – and you CAN’T use a contract with the Therapist – either due to state employment laws or state nutrition laws which affect how the Therapist can practice.
If you’re NOT a licensed practitioner but you work in the area of health and wellness, please also talk with an attorney who understands your business, because you still need to be sure that the Therapist you’re going to add to your team is legally allowed to perform ALL of the services you’re requesting without violating any of their state laws or other laws related to the fields of medicine, health or wellness.

“Lisa’s energy and positivity are infectious and her intelligence and commitment to legally protecting people and their businesses is like nothing I have ever seen.”
I purchased one of Lisa’s DIY legal templates. At first, I was hesitant because even though I knew the purchase included a guided audio, I was concerned that it would be complicated, boring or time consuming to create. I was completely and totally wrong! Listening to the audio and adding my own details to the legal document was a JOY. I was sincerely surprised. Not only was it easy, but I felt my business being completely taken care of in the most positive, direct, simple and respectful way.
Lisa infused into the document, the audio and all the materials she provided with great care, love and integrity. I am deeply grateful and cannot recommend working with Lisa more highly. I have worked with her as a direct client and now as an online consumer of her DIY products.
She is a true gem. If you are a spiritually minded, socially conscious person, there is no other lawyer or legal coach on the planet more skilled to help than Lisa.

“Lisa has brought me peace of mind and freedom to grow my business with confidence and legal clarity.“
She explained the law in clear terms and has allowed me the space and freedom to feel confident in having a sound legal structure for my businesses.
I have grown my therapy business from a part-time mental health practice to a full-time business earning 6 figures. I also recently incorporated a brand new separate life coaching business as an S-Corp thanks to Lisa’s support and guidance.
Lisa’s DIY documents, podcast, book and more have allowed me the room to grow my business with confidence & clarity. I consider Lisa to be an indispensable member of my team and I am so very fortunate to have found her.

“It is a very empowering experience to work with Lisa, and I strongly recommend her.”
Working with Lisa was so empowering. The law always intimidates me, and for the longest time I was dragging my feet because I did not know how to protect my license and work as a Success Coach online.
My first call with Lisa helped me to know that my fears were not unusual. She understood and articulated the passion she could hear in my voice more than I have ever heard anyone do before.
After my LLC was formed, she reviewed each LLC document with me and when the call was over she offered to stay on the phone until we completed the process.
