The Top 3 Mistakes EVERY therapist makes
When setting fees in private practice and why these mistakes leave you feeling Stressed Out, Anxious and INSECURE when charging for the work you do and enforcing your cancellation policy fees.
The hidden yet POWERFUL Mindset Shifts
That every therapist MUST experience if they want a calm, grounded and boundaried therapy practice that creates financial stability.
These shifts will fundamentally transform how you THINK about the role money plays in your practice, so you will be able to speak confidently about what you charge without guilt, insecurity or shame.
My 4 Step Framework to Becoming a Confident & Ethical Premium Fee Therapist
So you can move beyond the guilt that comes with raising fees, get past the constant insecurity of "Am I worth it?," and overcome the pressure to be "good enough" to deserve premium fees.
This step-by-step framework will give you the tools, resources and strategies to confidently charge your true full fee. Every Time.
Despite 3-7 years of graduate school, 3+ years of post-grad training along with months of studying for your licensing exams, training around how to think critically about the psychology of fee-setting was never on the curriculum.
The absolute silence around thinking about, talking about and working with fees in the the private practice setting has led many therapists to feel shame, guilt and anxiety whenever it comes to setting fees, raising fees, or even talking about fees in the therapy room.
This professional silence leads to the perpetuation of myths that keep therapists from addressing the reality of inadequate compensation for the difficult work that they do.
A premium fee cash pay practice is unethical and unfair. FALSE
You have to be in practice 15+ years before you can significantly raise fees. FALSE.
It is greedy to think about earning more in your practice. FALSE.
The desire for a financially secure practice means you don't really care about helping people. FALSE.
Offering a sliding scale is the ONLY way to fulfill your ethical responsibilities as a licensed therapists. FALSE:
These myths have hurt our profession AND, ultimately, led to subpar clinical work.
Yes. I said that.
In truth, it is possible to earn more AND help the clients you are truly passionate about serving.

"I knew what kind of practice I wanted to have and what kind of impact I wanted to make. While it went against every bone in my insecure, newbie licensed body, I understood that this single decision - to lean in, despite my anxiety and charge a fee that was in line with the reality of running a sustainable business - would impact every aspect of my life from that moment forward.
And, not only that, I refused to build a lucrative practice by sacrificing my roots - those peeps that I was passionate about serving.
Despite all the negative messages out there that said "High Fees = Selling Out," I found that I was able to:
If you're ready step it up and PLAY BIGGER - by creating a financially thriving practice, where you believe you can make bank AND help the clients you're passionate about serving, if you're ready to take responsibility for your life by leaning INTO the doubts, fears and insecurities so that you can discover what kind of therapist you are meant to be - then I cannot wait to serve you.
I'll see you on the other side." ~ Tiffany
