CJ's Consultation and Conversation Group
Therapy is a lonely profession. Deep conversations boxed in by important boundaries. Good thoughts, good intentions, and good strategies left to research instead of healthy conversation. This group hopes to bring back support in our industry and provide some community for support, strategy, and growth as providers of mental health.
My name is CJ and I will be hosting this meetup. It is mainly for CP providers but will be open on a limited basis to others in the community. There is no commitment, no payment, and an open door. There is limited space, so please only sign up if you intend to come if you are outside of Counseling Professionals PLLC. I look forward to talking soon!
