“You’ll probably only make about $12 an hour your first year as a counselor”
This is what one of my professors told our class during one of our last meetings in our graduate program. My jaw hit the floor. I never got into this business to become wealthy, but I knew that there was no way I was going to be able to serve my clients if I was struggling to feed myself or put a roof over my head.
This is unfortunately the truth for many therapists. We work 40+ hour weeks, see clients with mental health concerns that we don’t specialize in, and live paycheck to paycheck. I knew I could never be empowered living this way, and I also knew that if I didn’t feel empowered I wouldn’t be able to help my clients rediscover their power, so I knew this route wasn’t going to work for me.
Instead of going to work for a group counseling practice where the owner of the practice would take half of my wages, I decided to take a risk on myself and open my own practice. I spent months manifesting my dream healing space, learning how to attract my ideal clients, and speaking with other therapists to.figure out what worked and didn't work for them, and figuring out how to jump through all of the legal hoops of starting my own business.
I’m happy to say that my first year as a counselor (before I was even fully licensed)
I made well over six figures,
I only worked with my ideal clients,
and I created a schedule that supported my freedom.
Other therapists often ask me how I created my dream practice with a waitlist of clients in a fraction of the time it takes other therapists to do the same and my answer is always that the only thing standing in the way of you creating a practice that feels like a calling instead of a job is your belief in yourself, your knowledge of what steps to take, and your willingness to take the risk.
