Monarch is an online network that’s reimagining how therapists connect with therapy seekers. Plus, it’s completely integrated with SimplePractice—the leading practice management software for private practitioners. Monarch simplifies how therapists connect with prospective clients while helping them maintain a cohesive online presence. Additionally, it emphasizes what makes a practitioner’s practice unique, so they can connect with the clients they can serve best. Because both therapists and therapy seekers deserve less barriers.
Butterflies have long been a symbol of transformation, and also of Psyche, the guardian of the soul in Greek mythology. Given that our parent company SimplePractice has used the butterfly for its transformational connotations, we felt it important to reference both our roots and the beauty and power that the butterfly, and its unique lifecycle, represents.
Across many cultures, the monarch’s bold, bright appearance has long signaled the return of a soul to its familial home. The monarch’s journey is ultimately a defining part of its existence. To us, the journey to improved mental health bears a resemblance to the monarch’s journey. Therapy can be a key to deep soul transformation and reminder that brighter days are always ahead.
Monarch was designed for ease and simplicity—because it shouldn’t be expensive or a hassle to enhance your online presence. What sets Monarch apart from other directory services is its integration with SimplePractice, which simplifies your practice's needs by integrating your online profile with your SimplePractice account. Monarch allows therapy seekers to request an appointment based on your real-time availability. This reduces a barrier they face to finding care, while leaving you in control of your schedule.
This online directory is included with your SimplePractice Essential or Plus account. It doesn’t have any expensive “membership fees” or exclusive application process. Sign up for a free trial to join Monarch.
Monarch currently supports behavioral health clinicians—including social workers, marriage and family therapists, mental health counselors, psychologists, and substance use disorder counselors. Pre-licensed clinicians may also be listed.
Your Monarch profile is managed from your SimplePractice account. This is where you’ll enter your profile details—like your profile picture, bio, insurance and fees, specialties, and more. It is also where you will set your availability if you choose to enable Online Appointment Requests.
Monarch is included at no extra cost with your SimplePractice Essential or Plus account.
Monarch’s mission is twofold—creating an optimal experience for people seeking mental health support while giving every therapist a fair chance to attract new clients.
We regularly evolve our algorithm to ensure fairness in how therapist profiles are displayed on the Monarch Directory. In addition to factors like profile completeness, therapist availability, and location, the algorithm also accounts for randomization to ensure similar profiles are weighted and displayed equally.
