Welcome to Location Independent TherapistsCommunity, support, and resources for location independent mental health professionals (and their clients) everywhere
Who are we?
The mission of Location Independent Therapists is to support mental health professionals around the world in doing the work they love, while living the life of their dreams. We also help connect globally mobile clients with mental health professionals who understand the challenges of international living.
We believe that therapists (and their clients) shouldn’t be limited by geographic location. The psychologists, psychotherapists, and counsellors we work with support their clients across borders and time zones.
What We Do:
- The paid LIT Community – a supportive community for mental health therapists around the world starting or growing their online practice offering hot seat coaching, coworking, business & social events, 24/7 discussion board & a public directory
- The LIT Directory – connecting clients and therapists around the world
- Online workshops for mental health professionals, such as our “Brand Strategy Workshop for (online) Therapists”
- Free resources: On our blog & YouTube channel you’ll find helpful resources, tips, guides & inspiring interviews with location independent therapists around the world. Or join our free Facebook group with over 5,000 mental health professionals around the globe – a great place to ask some of the questions you might have and stay up to date on the latest LIT news.
Introducing the LIT Founders
Hi! We are Melissa Parks & Sonia Jaeger, the LIT co-founders. We are both trained as mental health professionals and over the past few years, we’ve had great success with running our online, portable businesses.
We largely contribute our business success to the online support systems we’ve created, and we want to offer support, inspiration, and connection to mental health professionals worldwide. And that’s why we created the LIT Community, a dedicated space for other mental health professionals around the world who are looking to create (or grow) their location independent businesses. We also offer the LIT Scholarship to make our community more accessible.
Melissa is a trained psychologist now working as a mindset coach for entrepreneurs. After working as an online therapist in Spain and the Netherlands for ten years, Melissa repatriated to her home country, the US. She continues to enjoy collaborating with colleagues around the world through the LIT Community! You can find out more about Melissa here!
