Mandatory Curriculum for Peer Counselors & Therapists

It always joyful and inspiring to listen to each episode of the money sessions. There is a story that everyone can relate to because providers from all walks of life are generously sharing their path to charging premium fees and taking care of themselves all while breaking generational patterns to do so. Tiffany does not hold back and challenges each participant with thought provoking questions that get straight to the heart of the matter. You get to see money work live in action! This is high value content!! If you’re thinking of starting a private practice or feel something needs to change in your private practice you must listen to the money sessions now!

Dose of encouragement

I LOVE this podcast. I love Tiffany’s passion about supporting therapists to go self-pay, charging premium fees, and having the practice you want. She clearly has a well developed approach, and a wonderful communicator. I have been going private pay for way too long, and finally did it. But I keep listening to every new podcast, because I find another dose of encouragement, reassurance, and clarity on my journey. I already work with a practice consultant (when I realized I couldn’t do it on my own well/quickly). But this podcast has helped me move the needle of emotional alignment with my goals much faster. Can’t wait for the next episode!
