E9: Leaving group practice – How Jenn went from charging $50/session to $175

In this episode of The Money Sessions, we get to hear from Virginia based therapist Jenn Fredette. Jenn is going to talk about just how hard it was for her to leave her group practice, given that she felt a responsibility to stick with the people who launched her into her professional career, and why she ultimately decided to leave. AND – how she went straight into filling her own private practice while charging premium fees and taking private pay only.
