Erin Rayburn - LMFT & Mental Health Treatment Strategist

Owner, CEO, and Supervising Therapist at Evergreen Therapy
On the record

Managing her own private practice for the past 12 years provided Erin Rayburn with the experience she needed to launch a new type of private therapy practice. Erin founded Evergreen Therapy in 2020 to help provide world-class mental health services while providing a supportive space for therapists to grow their clinical skills and learn best business practices. Over the past decade, Erin learned through trial and error how to run a successful practice while building her caseload and establishing a respectable network. Throughout her career, she’s met brilliant and passionate therapists, but many of them lack strong business knowledge and she’s dedicated to helping other clinicians achieve flexibility, stability, and success.
