E33: How raising her session fees increased the quality of Holly’s clinical work

In this episode, we’re speaking with Holly Anderson, one of our Lean In MAKE BANK grads. Before she got into Lean In. MAKE BANK, she was charging $125 per session. Then she raised her fees by $10 and was like, “I don’t need Tiffany’s program. I just raised by $10. I’m a baller.”

But some part of her realized that she had work to do yet and she decided to jump into it. She now charges $150 for individuals, $180 for couples, and she’s about to raise her fees again by the end of the year up to $175 to $200.

In this episode, Holly will share:

  • What made her realize it was time to change her private practice fees and raise her rates;

  • What she learned about her schedule and what it took for her to know that she needed to do something about it;

  • Her fear in making these changes;

  • What she discovered about herself in the process of preparing for and taking these steps;

  • How these changes that she made showed up in the quality of her clinical work.
