    Thanks for sharing. How did you figure out your value? I am working to find the happy medium of not giving my services away but not being over the top.

      Honestly, it was something that is still evolving for me. I know that when I started out I did not charge as much as I do now but once I gained specialities and training with other methods of therapy, I knew it was time for me to bump up my rate. I’d look at how much others in your area charge to gauge what your market can handle. Also, know that when you start getting clients more and more, it may be time to bump up. Remember, you are a professional and went to school for a while to gain your education so giving it away would not be true to yourself. Hope that helps:)
