Connect with what matters in your life and your practice


Money is everywhere, and yet, we don’t spend enough time talking about it and openly exploring the impacts money has on us. Instead, we carry around old money beliefs that do not support us and impact the way we show up with clients, our families, and our practice as a whole. 

This workshop was created to support therapists and healers in private practice. We will create a collective space to talk about money and get clarity around the impacts your money relationship has on your life and your business.   

This workshop provides a combination of self-reflection, tax and bookkeeping tips, and practical information about money and the mental health field.

 In This Daylong Workshop We Will:

·       Uncover your vision for success

·       Explore blocks to your own empowerment

·       Gain practical information about finances, taxes, money management

·       Determine what kinds of support you need to succeed in your business

·       Get clear about your financial goals

·       Develop clear systems to support your financial goals

This Workshop Is A Good Fit For:
