Helping you balance your desire to do good with your desire to make bank

We’re on a mission to revolutionize how social workers and therapists like you think and talk about money so that you can raise your fees confidently, work smarter (not harder), and fundamentally transform your clinical work AND lifestyle.

Hi, we’re Team LIMB. We help you:

Build a thriving practice (and life) by facing your financial fears

Ditch the secrecy, shame, and guilt around addressing fees in the clinical setting. Let us show you how to serve your patients AND have financial security.

What makes us different?

Honest & curious relationship with money

For many of us, our financial fears – the ways we think about money are deeply rooted in intergenerational trauma, our lived experiences, and broken social structures – especially if you’re a woman, POC, or grew up working class.  

Our mission is to help you BE that therapist who creates your own financial security, regardless of the circumstances life has thrown your way, by giving you the internal tools to design the practice (and life) you actually want.

Because gaining real financial security takes so much more than just figuring out how to market yourself and your practice. Uncovering your money conflicts and learning how to use money as a therapeutic intervention within the clinical setting will truly set you free – financially and emotionally.

Facing difficult topics head-on

We like to keep it 100% real – because we know that this “taboo” around money talk has historically kept women and minorities trapped in financial instability.

It’s time that we historically underrepresented folks own our power, become unapologetic breadwinners, and build formidable net worth.

It is an act of rebellion to prioritize your needs. It is an act of courage to step up, step out, and REFUSE to conform to the narrative that your only mission is to serve others.

To, instead, hold up and model the value that your needs are important, independent of your service to others, and that the needs, desires, and passions of women and minorities ARE of value in and of themselves.

Breaking unconscious patterns

When, at our core, we do not truly believe we have the right to financial security – financial freedom – we unconsciously find ways to “earn” the money we make. Many of us adopt the dysfunctional cycle of professional burnout and overwhelm that we witnessed in our families of origin.

This is where the work begins.

We are fiercely dedicated to identifying the long-standing unconscious patterns that you have internalized. This is not skim-the-surface, “it’s all in your head” work. We believe that you will only experience financial ease when you have support to really examine the ways unconscious dynamics are at play when it comes to your relationship with money.

We help you move from a place of desperation, fear, and envy to thinking like a six-figure private practice owner – so you can operate from a place of freedom, desire, and confidence.

The support of an empowered community

Even the most successful private practice therapists have mentors, cheerleaders, colleagues, and communities that challenge them to stretch, grow, and become better than they could ever be alone.

While raising your fee can literally happen in a day, developing your new professional identity and sustaining these new fees for good takes time.

This is why we have cultivated an outstanding online community of therapists who have learned to identify the ways you hold yourself back and challenge yourself to PLAY BIGGER, step up your clinical work, show up fully in our professional community, and push you to take up space.

Because we NEED you to take up space, to make the impact that only you can make.

The story behind our name:


Navigating the money talks? Yeah, it can feel like a battlefield – especially for women and folks from working-class backgrounds.

Think about it – when was the last time you actually enforced your no-show or late cancellation fees?

And what makes it so hard? The internal voice that whispers, “But it wasn’t their fault their kiddo was sick?” Or the external voices yelling, “Wow. Do you think that’s even ethical?”

Being the helper, putting aside your own emotional needs was necessary at a point in your life. It helped you (and your family) survive.

But now, NOW… it’s getting in the way. It’s keeping you and your clients stuck in unconscious patterns of codependency, unclear boundaries, and martyrdom.

The fact is, it’s uncomfortable to examine how these dynamics are playing out in your clinical work.

It’s hard to look at how your own behaviors are undermining your professional success.
But here’s the thing: Leaning into this unease? That’s your golden ticket.

If you’ve been waiting for a sign, this is it. The system won’t change for you: YOU change for you. So Lean In. It’s time to MAKE BANK.

Founder’s story

Hey! Tiffany McLain, LMFT here.

“I realized we needed space to dig into all the conflicting FEELINGS that come up when therapists talk about money.”

The look on my professor’s face when I stated that my fee was $185… (five bucks more than he was charging after decades in the field.)? Priceless.

“Maybe drop the rate,” he said.

I didn’t. #HowIRoll.

Sure, I didn’t expect instant cash the moment I started my private practice. But I did expect to set myself up for financial security – especially after spending the first half of my life being of service to those around me without any significant financial compensation.

This whole just-getting-by, Trader Joe’s two-buck chuck situation? Nah, not my style. Not anymore. And I’m guessing you’re getting tired of it, as well.

But society? It’s got us thinking that, as therapists and social workers, being broke is a badge of honor.

Want to charge more confidently? Overwhelmed by the emotions it triggers? Need a clear roadmap?

Welcome to the room where we talk openly about ALL of it. And take decisive action.

Let’s rewrite the narrative together.


My evolution as a therapist, mentor, and money mindset advocate

She is excited to support you in squaring up with your blocking beliefs and is committed to helping you step into the fullness of your badass potential!
