E16: How this testing psychologist consultant raised his fees from $250/hour to $400/hour

It’s exhausting putting all the extra hours into your practice now so you can afford to live the life you love later. But what if you could overcome the fear of raising your rates while creating a schedule that works for you in order to live the life you love NOW? Join me today for my first interview with a psychologist consultant to find out how!

In this episode, we hear from Jeremy Sharp, group testing practice owner turned consultant. While he still owns his group practice, he also works with testing psychologists to build testing and assessment services in their own practices. We’ll talk about Jeremy’s early days as a consultant and dive into his fears about charging higher fees, as well as how he overcame them, and how he learned to set the necessary boundaries to create a schedule that fits his life.

In this episode, Jacque will share:

  • The what & why around his fear of raising his rates and how he overcame the fear;

  • The importance of focusing on your WHY when adjusting your practice to fit your life;
  • The reality of how much time is spent in the transition period when making changes to your practice (Spoiler!: it took 3-6 months for him);

More about Jeremy

Jeremy Sharp opened his private practice in Colorado in 2009. Although slow-going at first, his practice exploded over night. Jeremy scrambled to hire the best local grad students and trained them to conduct testing and evaluations. Thus began the long hours of running his busy private practice and spending less time with his family. Jeremy was burnt out and he needed to make a change, and he did!

In 2017, he started his consulting business, The Testing Psychologist. Although he still has his private practice, Jeremy now takes the pain from his own experiences and his knowledge of shifting your mindset to help testing psychologist build testing and assessment services in their own practices. He works with them to break down the numbers and overcome the feelings of overwhelm and isolation.
