Our goal is to create a thriving community of Intentional Therapists.
An opportunity for like-minded female mental health professionals of all backgrounds to connect and share resources, support, and permission to take care of ourselves.
Recognizing the importance of women supporting women, we offer a number of group-based services to help tackle the barriers and support you in taking care of your most important asset, you! Please feel welcome to contact us directly about creating a half- or full-day virtual workshop or series of workshops for your own group of female mental health professionals.
We also open registration throughout the year for cohorts of our online offering, Thrivival Skills for Therapists! More information is available here for our Spring 2023 cohort. Please also contact us directly if you would like to go through this program with your own group.
And don't forget to sign up for our email newsletter to be the first to find out about Thrivival Skills, other workshops and events, and receive access to special pricing.
On our Media page you can find links to our recent podcast interviews, as well as our own newly launched podcast, Thrivival 101: A Fresh Take on Self-Care for Female Mental Health Clinicians.
And please check out our TGIF Blog for all our past musings on our self-care struggles and successes.
Finally, we hope the curated resources below will also help you to broaden your definition of self-care and find some additional ongoing support and inspiration.
