I need this!

What if you could feel more confident NOW on how to guide your clients through the therapeutic process, and create positive change?


Being a new clinician can be exciting; you have all this new knowledge, all this education behind you, internship experience, and are ready to change the world one person at a time!

But at the same time, it sometimes can feel isolating and ridiculously stressful with these questions running through your head:


Will I ever feel confident in my clinical skills?
Am I doing this right?
How do other therapists handle this?
What other tools can I use?
I worry I’m never going to be enough. 
Maybe I’m not meant to be a social worker. 


This was my experience too and I learned it can take years of trial & error and under-served clients to finally feel confident.

Looking back, you know what would have helped me quicker and faster?

If I had somewhere to go to teach me all the things about providing direct therapy. 

I’m not talking about the basics I learned in grad school, I needed something MORE. From clinicians actually doing the work. I needed others to bounce ideas off of and specific training on the therapeutic process, from beginning to end. From assessment to termination and everything in between!

If this sounds like you, you're in the right place; I'm glad you're here!

You need these skills and confidence NOW, not in a few years

We are in extreme times where therapeutic support is not only needed but is being sought out now more than ever. The world needs you at the top of your skill set NOW. 

Know how to effectively complete initial assessments, create treatment plans, and understand how common interventions can be so powerful!

Additionally, you need to be able to document your interventions like a pro to effectively to show the progress your client is making and to show your professionalism in the field.
