Our doors are currently closed, sign up to our waitlist below to be the first to hear when they’ll next open!
Whether you want to:
- start your location independent therapists (LIT) practice
- grow your LIT practice and attract your ideal clients
- are considering taking your practice on the road
- or moving to a new country altogether
…do you have the support you need to make these dreams a reality?
The LIT Community offers a place to inspire and support location independent mental health professionals as they grow their businesses.
You’ll find colleagues from all over the world working with clients across countries, languages, and time zones. You can connect and collaborate with one another through the discussion board and a variety of events that focus on both business building and supporting your work with clients. We also offer an online directory featuring our members and encourage referrals amongst members.
Working from home (wherever in the world that may be) can be incredibly lonely, but with LIT it doesn’t have to be.
Does this sound like what you’re looking for to help you bring your business to the next level?
This community is where we get together, talk about best practices and the ins and outs of our daily work. Our Community is a safe space for therapists from all around the world to connect and help each other – Melissa, co-founder.

Who are we?
We are an international community of location independent mental health professionals working across borders and time zones. We are licensed psychologists, psychotherapists, counsellors, coaches, and many more working in the mental health field.
We help our clients through (online) counselling and therapy no matter what country they (or we) currently live in or travel to.
We are multilingual, international and welcoming. We know how hard it can be to figure it all out on your own. We are here to help and support you on your journey to and through location-independent counselling! – Sonia, co-founder.
“I was searching for a sense of community; a place to share fears as well as successes, and to learn from other professionals. To date, my favourite part of the community is exactly that culture of sharing that is fostered by each member.”
“I joined [the LIT Community] as a way to push myself to reach my professional goals and to surround myself with other therapists who would “get it” and support me in the process. My favourite part of the community has been connecting with the other members because they have truly inspired me to move forward in my location independent journey. Everyone has unique experiences and perspectives and they are an incredible source of encouragement.“
“While this way of working gives me the freedom and flexibility to work from anywhere, it can become a little lonely. The LIT community serves this need for me – it allows me to exchange ideas with like-minded people and provides a space where we can support one another. My favourite parts of the community so far are the coffee meetings, business meet-up and the case supervision sessions.”
“I was searching for a professional community who are doing what I want to do – a community of people who share similar values and who are working in location independent practices, or working towards that goal. I landed in the right place. The LIT Community has been really supportive and I’ve been enjoying having a place to share ideas and knowledge.“

Who created this group and why?
Hi! We are Melissa Parks & Sonia Jaeger. 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 that success to the online support systems we’ve created. In addition to being business accountability buddies, we’ve also created a peer mastermind group and book club with other online therapists.
We’ve also found a lot of support in the Location Independent Therapists Facebook group that we co-moderate. However, we’re ready to take this group to the next level and create a dedicated space for other mental health professionals around the world who are looking to create (or grow) their location independent businesses.
Melissa just recently repatriated to her home country, the US, after living and working from Spain and the Netherlands for the past 10 years. You can find out more about Melissa here!
Sonia is a German-French psychotherapist who is about to celebrate her 7th anniversary as a digital nomad. You can find out more about Sonia here!
