E37: How Lauren created an online private practice that allows her to passionately serve her clients & give back to the community

In this episode, we’re speaking with Lauren Selfridge, a therapist in private practice, who is going to be talking about what it took for her to raise her fees and why she had to change her schedule.  She actually found out on the verge of her private practice that she had MS, which really impacted how she went into private practice.

We’re going to be talking about how Lauren created a private online practice that sustains her, that works for her, and allows her to live her dream life. She is living in two different countries and going back and forth. She can continue to work with the clients that she is passionate about serving and she has been able to creatively build a business. She has a podcast, This Is Not What I Ordered, and also does graphic design work, that allows her to give back.
