You are a therapist, counselor, or other professional who works with mental health, either directly or indirectly. You tend to think outside the box and question traditional methods of treatment.
Perhaps you use a variety of modalities or have even developed your own. Or maybe you are highly collaborative, working in tandem with other professionals to gain better results for your patients or clients.
If this describes you, this site is for you. This is your community, your peers, your "tribe", and it's great that you are here. Because.....
Including how we approach treatment! Not only do we have more tools and techniques to use in addition to talk therapy, but there's also more cross-over from neuroscience, holistic treatments, functional and integrative medicine, and a higher degree of collaboration between professionals. We can mix and match and find the best tools for our patients and clients.
The stigma that has so long plagued our industry is dying. In the past few years, with many notable celebrities admitting to struggling with anxiety or depression or other mental health issues, there has been more awareness and acceptance of mental health conditions.
Now, we are in the middle of a worldwide crisis with the pandemic, and it's common knowledge that most people are experiencing at least heightened anxiety as a result of the uncertain times we are experiencing.
"Mental health" is becoming a HEALTH issue with the realization that mental health is akin to physical health — there's good and not-so-good mental health, mental and emotional health are part of being a human being, AND our mental health deserves attention.
Finally, mental health is being looked upon favorably and we are moving past diagnosis, disease, and disorder. Mental health is about being HEALTHY!
It's time to show that good mental health is as important as good physical health and that it applies to everyone, not just those with conditions or disorders.
These are just some of the things we discuss in our community.
This is a closed group of professionals whose work involves mental health, including psychologists, psychiatrists, psychotherapists, and specialized practitioners. The focus of this community is to provide opportunities for connection that are not available anywhere else.
I'm a psychotherapist who's on a mission to change the way we perceive and treat mental health. Instead of focusing on disorders and diagnoses and what's wrong with people, let's focus on what's right!
My practice is in Texas and I've worked with just about everything related to mental health — anxiety and depression of course, but also substance use, addiction, couples, families, gender identity, teen issues, spiritual conflict, and severe disorders.
Early in my practice, I felt results from the traditional hour-a-week sessions were painfully slow, so I began experimenting with different models. This experimentation yielded great results and became the basis for several of my programs, including Intensives, Therapeutic Life Coaching and Master Potentialist®.
My practice took off, as did my effectiveness and skill level. Now I want to find other visionaries so we can build a community of great practitioners and share our knowledge.
Private practice can be isolating, so I started two mental health associations in my local area. It was a great experience — it connected me to colleagues, helped me build a strong referral network, and gave me a plethora of opportunities.
Now, I want to expand on that. So I built this community to connect with innovative mental health professionals from all over the world.
Imagine what we can do together!
In my practice, I work primarily with business leaders in helping them uncover new opportunities to reach their maximum potential. This includes mental health practitioners. I want to see you THRIVE - personally and professionally!
My goal is to provide you with tools that can help you do just that, including significantly increasing your income! I believe this is very important in our profession. The work we do is life-changing and the idea that we should sacrifice financial freedom in order to help others needs to change. But we'll talk more about that later.
Get signed up in the community, and let's do great things!
