Amy raised her fees while seeing her ideal clients
I didn’t even realize there were so many of my own blocks that were getting in the way of me being able to really get into and listen for my clients anxiety around money and then suddenly this whole new space open up in the room that I think I was just missing this huge piece of work with a lot of people. Therapists have a lot of blind spots. I was so grateful to have this one revealed to me and to get to work in this totally new way, a really important way.

Kim finally recognized the patterns that were keeping her from increasing her fees.
I had a private pay practice, and charged a decent fee. I was doing ok… until I wasn’t. I knew how to get people in. I just couldn’t charge them. My first week of LIMB I was struggling with asking a parent to pay me for a session the kid forgot the attend. All that to say, the money stuff is the core. It helps you determine niche and marketing strategies. I wish I had done it earlier.

Gwen uncovered hidden blocks around money
“I didn’t even realize there were so many of my own blocks that were getting in the way of me being able to really get into and listen for my clients anxiety around money and then suddenly this whole new space open up in the room that I think I was just missing this huge piece of work with a lot of people.

Jenn Fredette, LMFT
Within 1 year, Jenn nearly doubled her salary, significantly reduced the time she worked, and even took 3 weeks of paid vacation!
I have WAY more freedom. Not only in terms of my group practice (which cost me a lot financially and, in retrospect, emotionally), but also in the ability to market as I wanted, not offer sliding scale, and to have final say on how things are done. One set up a budget/financial system that allowed me to pay myself every two weeks, which was HUGE. It has done so much not only for my money anxiety but also for my money integrity (I can now know exactly how much I will make each month, which means I can accurately budget for it, including putting aside money so eventually I can be one month or more ahead of expenses).
I still work too much (this is a personal problem, that I work on in therapy), but I get to choose who I work with and how I work with them. This doesn’t just mean clients, but it also means colleagues, consultants, and now as I continue to expand, with other kinds of people I can serve.
I used to be really scared of money. Sometimes I still am. But the more I am able to see the potential to not only earn more, but be more the kind of person I want to be (without shame, without unnecessary fear and with generosity, kindness, and grit), the more I’m able to approach money with curiosity and playfulness. Not letting all of my projects rule me, but rather, untangling my shit so I can really wake up and stay awake to what life has to offer.
I’m really fucking lucky.
If we were to calculate the dividends that have been paid to me over the past 27 months since I’ve taken LIMB, I have:
Earned: $93,728 MORE than I would have if I stayed at my group practice
Work Less: By 944 hours
Jelisha overcame her negative self-talk, raised her fees to $175 for individuals and $250 for couples, and moved into her dream home
I’ve always been told, “You’re so smart for a black girl,” or strangers have always made assumptions that my academic scholarship was a “Minority scholarship*.
Those narratives caused me to swing between an anxious need and defensiveness to show proof that I was worthy, “good enough,” OR cause me to “downplay” my value or abilities.
Combining that with the expectation that I felt the need to help others first (lowering fees, not enforcing that cancellation fee) made my goals for making it in private practice seem bleak.
I also got shamed for not taking insurance.
After LIMB, I was no longer okay with “just getting by” – all the things – and the luxury – I ever wanted became my new baseline.
I increased my fees to $175 for individuals and $250 for couples, moved into my dream home, and continued to invest in courses and programs that fuel my growth.
Raising my fees has allowed me to be fully present and honest and be able to say, “No, this person isn’t a good fit for me,” and refer them elsewhere without anxiety. Having experienced such a HUGE shift in a short time translates into my clinical work and personal life.
Jelisha Gatling, LMFT
Danielle finally learned how to take care of her financial needs
“Before LIMB, I was certainly not saving enough to save for retirement. I was sick a lot and had no space to take care of myself. Tiffany helped me see how rich therapy work can be when I directly tackle challenging money conversations with clients. After taking LIMB, I have created space to fully tend to my mental, physical, emotional and spiritual needs. I enjoy my life and I’m experiencing radiant health.
Danielle Hatchell, LPCP
Alisa went from charging $90/session to charging $200+/session – all while doing better clinical work
“I’ve known I’ve needed to do LIMB for years and finally took the plunge, and it is completely undoing me in the best way. I thought I was giving my clients the best care, and I’m realizing that if I’m not clear on my money stories that are actually linked to so many other things, then I’m not actually giving my clients the care they need.”

“I went from thinking nobody would pay me $85 per session to confidently charging $250 per session. Now, I can focus on being a great mom and a great therapist.”

Just wanted to share that I calculated my gross income from 2019 is $94K (2018 was $58K). I spent most of last year anxious because I had less clients. But now I see I still made almost double my income!

“You are helping me think about getting my money game right, but you’re also really inspiring me to think about marketing as my authentic self rather than squeezing myself into a mold that doesn’t fit.”
– Lauren J., Therapist
Aren’t you ready to make THIS your reality?
No more holding back - you get to stand in your financial truth and feel empowered to unapologetically raise your rates
Getting off insurance panels that are limiting your income and the level of care you can offer your clients
Charging your full fees for late cancellations without ZERO guilt
Creating more white space on your calendar for clinical readings, quality time with the fam, or to just BE
Fully funding your savings, including saving for a new car, regular babysitters/date nights, travel with the family, and professional development
Because therapists with more money have more capacity to make change
No more googling, “How much do therapists make?” only to spiral into self-doubt without a clear path forward! You CAN build a successful private practice without burning yourself out – whether you’ve been at it for a few years or a few decades.
