Kym Tolson, LCSW, The Traveling Therapist

As a therapist who has transformed my love for travel into an exciting digital nomad lifestyle, I've been on a thrilling journey of exploration while residing in Airbnb's around the world. Along the way, I created a close-knit community called "Bill Like A Boss," where insurance-based therapists come together to learn and elevate their practices. In addition to that, I've curated a vibrant membership community specifically tailored to support therapists who are balancing work and travel. Discover more about these empowering communities at I'm eagerly looking forward to guiding you in embracing your dreams and making a positive impact from any corner of the globe. Let's embark on this incredible adventure together!
