Online and in-person opportunities to learn about building a nourishing and sustainable practice.
New! Money Matters Deep Dive Online Course
Be part of the founding cohort as I take my in-person workshop online!
The Money Matters Deep Dive is moving online and I couldn't be more excited.
Dig in to the three money realms of private practice- the personal realm, the business realm, and the clinical realm - and master money matters in your practice.
If you are ready to identify and deal with the blocks that are keeping you from earning what you want and need in your practice..
If you are ready to confidently initiate conversations that address both the concrete and symbolic aspects of money for your clients...
If you are ready to shine some compassion on that money shame so it's not running the show anymore...
Then you'll want to be on the waitlist for the Deep Dive.
Getting on the waitlist isn't making a commitment to the class, but even this small step is an indication that you are ready for something to change in your relationship to money in your practice.
"I found that dedicating time and space to addressing my personal relationship with money and my concerns about money in private practice was incredibly beneficial to my practice and my confidence. The workshop has given me a lot to think about and many resources to dive in to in order to get a more solid grasp on my business finances."

Money Matters in Private Practice
In person two-hour evening class in Oakland, CA
Class size limited.
Next date: TBA
Conversations about the fee are the ones that can make therapists the most uncomfortable, especially if they are newer to private practice. How those conversations unfold is influenced by many factors, including the therapist's personal beliefs and needs around money, their clarity about their business, their class identification, and their ability to address the clinical issues that are connected to the fee. That's a lot going on at once, and that's just what's happening inside the therapist. The fee is also meaningful for the client, in both concrete and symbolic ways. No wonder it can be so anxiety producing.
In this interactive workshop, we will think about fees in private practice from personal, business, and clinical perspectives. Whether you are just starting out or have been in practice for a while, this class will help you
My intention is for this to be a supportive environment where we can think together about the complexities of being business owners and clinicians and people who want to make a good living while doing good work in the world.
Feedback from former participants:
"This was extremely helpful! Particularly in that I was able to cathartically express feelings I have kept inside about money and my practice. I feel empowered and grounded!" - E.C.
