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.

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.

Testimonials

“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.”

Gabriela Encina

Psychologist and Expat Coach, who mainly works from Chile, Austria and Spain

“I joined the LIT community to network with like-minded professionals and gain motivation and support in this lonely working from home day-to-day reality. So far my favourite parts of the community are the co-working sessions, business meet-ups and the book club.”

Rahel Goenner

German psychotherapist based in Spain helping Humanitarian Aid Workers

“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.”

Romina Reginold

Swiss psychologist currently based in Dubai

“Being location independent means that I can more easily adapt my business to whatever is happening in my life from season to season. I sought out the LIT community because I really value having colleagues to work alongside and I feel that this needs to be a more intentional act when not having a physical space. I am very much enjoying the peer supervision sessions, being around other professionals who “get it” and feeling inspired that this can, and does, work!”

Kelsey Hoff

Canadian therapist currently based in the Middle East

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 recently celebrated her 5th anniversary as a digital nomad. You can find out more about Sonia here!

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.

Membership fee: $99/month (two months free if you sign up annually!)

 

Doors Closed!

We will open the doors 2-3 times per year for 1 week only as we want to focus on making this community the best it can be for our members, not just selling and marketing it
