In this episode, we’re speaking with Djuna Osborne, a therapist based in Roanoke, VA. She went from charging as low as $0/session to charging $200/session in a town where the median household income is 25k. 

In this episode, we will hear how growing up with conflicting money narratives – both attending a private school, but also having to beg other students for money so she could eat – impacted her money behavior when she went into her own private practice.

In this episode, Djuna will share:

  • How facing her money mindset issues helped Djuna become a better clinician;
  • What it was like for Djuna to look for a premium fee therapist in her area and why she made the choice to pay more for her own therapy; 
  • How increasing her fees allowed her to be more present with her family and children;
  • Three things she was afraid of when raising fees;
  • Three actionable things you can do right now to charge premium fees and improve your clinical skills.
