E72: How A Significant Personal Loss Led Erin To Charging Premium Fees

In this episode, we’re speaking with Erin Collins, a therapist based out of Massachusetts. Erin focuses her work on teens and adults experiencing anxiety, as well as people healing from different types of loss.

After the father of Erin’s sons passed away from cancer, Erin had to step up and become the sole financial provider for her children. Along with this new role, Erin had to deal with her own grieving, and the grieving of her children. This difficult reality led Erin to rethink her views on private practice and premium fees.
