Are you looking for a place where you can show up, be seen and really understood?
Would you benefit from being in a community of like-minded people who got into the field of therapy and are on the marathon track of getting licensed?
And are you finding it hard to find affordable therapy hours to meet the requirements of your graduate program and/or count towards your hours?
If you value being real, laughter, courage, confidentiality and are passionate about the field of mental health, then this group may be for you.
This space will be special. It will help ground you, encourage you and care for your big heart and mind that is going a million miles a minute.
Benching this season of not feeling fully qualified, confident, or prepared while working hard to learn, train, and grow is sometimes a roller coaster. Feelings of unworthiness, not being enough and the green compare monster often have a field day during this vulnerable time of training.
It is so hard to juggle staying in the present while pushing forward with your goal – whether it is finishing school, your hours, or getting licensed while trying to make ends meet and have a personal life. It sure can be overwhelming at times.
Self-care is not a luxury – especially for those in the helping professions. This community will be an antidote to cynicism and compassion fatigue.
Give air to your frustrations, share the passions that led you to this career path, and fan the flame of hope that led you to applying for graduate school in the first place.
