Before joining Lean In. Make Bank, Montoyia had a secret desire to raise her fee to $80, but a friend’s difficulty getting clients at that fee made her nervous, so she decided on $75/session (and had clients even below that) because she was afraid that no one would pay her if she raised the fee.
Montoyia had a feeling there was something she was missing when it came to understanding the role of money in therapy (and life), but she knew there were questions out there that she didn’t even know how to ask
In her city, there were not a lot of therapists who were authentic and full force ahead. She KNEW she needed to be surrounded by a community success-minded therapists if she was going to take her practice to the next level, so she decided to join the program.
“I was able to Increase my rates comfortably, talk about my rates confidently and no longer feel like I need to make accommodations for others to pay to see me.”
Leaning into your money mindset isn’t about charging $200/session and leaving behind the people you are passionate about serving. Quite the opposite, in fact! By tackling your money shit, you get real life experience learning how to stand firmly in who you are and what you have to offer, and in so doing – you are better equipped to help your clients do the same.
While Montoyia knew she wanted to confront and shift her own money scripts, she didn’t realize that leaning into her anxieties about money would result in a $600 increase in just a month after taking the program. With the skills she learned, exponential growth is inevitable. She can now see a way clear path out of her agency job and into private practice full time.
