I’ve been a social worker and therapist for over 25 years and in that time, there have been many twists and turns. I started in the non-profit world then moved into community mental health then worked in a higher end private practice.
I feel like I've done it all and have certainly paid my dues!
All of these positions I've had over the years had a few things in common: low pay, crappy benefits, unrealistic expectations to manage HUGE caseloads and it all lead to mounting stress burnout and compassion fatigue.
I thought that opening a private practice would be the antidote to all of this but it wasn't. I worked hard and built my solo practice to multi-6 figures...but I was still stressed and exhausted by the end of each day.
Constant battling with insurance companies, having to deal with fluctuations in caseload resulted in a roller coaster-y income and trading time for (not enough) money began to wear on me over the years.
By the end of everyday, I had nothing left to give my family (and forget a healthy social life) and after 12 years, I knew I couldn't continue to live like that!
I thought there HAD to be a better way to create an income for myself and my family, while still being able to help people transform their lives.
Then I discovered that there were coaches online who were making 4x more (at least) than I was as a therapist.
Many of them didn't have any training or certifications in psychology, behavioral sciences or similar disciplines!
This blew my mind!
So I dove in... and it wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. I found myself paying other people thousands of dollars to guide me and I still wasn't getting clients!
Over time and with strategic guidance from the *right* people, things started to shift...
And I believe my results speak for themselves! I recently closed the doors to my private practice and I am enjoying the freedom and abundance that I craved 2 years ago when I started this journey.
I want to help you, therapist friend, to create this too!
I will teach you everything I've learned to help you go from stressed, exhausted and underpaid therapist to successful and abundant online coach.
All you have to to is have the vision, drive and motivation and I'll take care of the rest 😄
