Ask Tiffany: If I raise my fees, am I abandoning my clients?!

Today’s question comes from Therapist Annie!

She asks:

In what circumstances would it be considered unethical or abandoning to raise rates on clients? Particularly if it’s a large jump in the fee increase (say from 140 to 200?)”

Wha WHA?!

In this episode of Ask Tiffany, we tackle this from a variety of angles, including:

  1. How to tell the difference between fear and reality when tackling money issues.
  2. How to work with the fee as a clinical issues so you’re actually using fee raises to help your clients.

Without further ado, I jump into Annie’s question in this week’s episode of Ask Tiffany: The Money Series!
