Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in mental wellness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Nancy Wilson, Founder of Wilson Counseling, located in Bellaire, TX, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

Wilson Counseling is a psychotherapy practice serving individuals in Texas. We offer counseling services both virtually throughout Texas and in person in Houston, TX. We help individuals who feel stuck and unhappy to reach their goals and find joy in their lives. We work with people who are dealing with anxiety, trauma, PTSD, eating disorders, marriage problems, parenting problems, and infertility.

Tell us about yourself

I believe my calling is to come alongside others who are hurting or feel stuck or lost. I have the tools they can use to heal and change their lives. It's a beautiful thing to see people empowered and to see them transform their lives and reach their goals. It is very gratifying to see people who experienced trauma begin to let go of that and to see people who have pain and conflict in their lives learn to repair those relationships.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

The things I feel most proud of in my business are the stories of each client who was able to transform their lives and heal their pain. Being able to expand services to help more people feels fantastic. I believe in the work, so expanding services feels like it is making a difference in the world.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

The work is never done. There is always something more that can be done to expand, grow, create more efficient systems, etc. It's a labor of love, but it can also be stressful to wear so many hats and to still find time for yourself.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Find good mentors who can share their successes and failures.
  2. Schedule downtime so your mind can be fresh, and you can still enjoy your life.
  3. Don't be afraid to take risks for yourself. You are worth it!
