A Professional Development Course**

For most of us, the idea of pursuing a career as a mental health therapist can come out of poignant moments. It may be a draw to the schedule flexibility and freedom that the field can allow, discovering a deep fascination with the science of human experience, or the inspiration we feel after being helped by a therapist in our own lives.
But being able to connect our dreams with the reality of working in the mental health field can sometimes have disconnects, and this course is designed to help you make those connections between your dreams and the reality of your work as a clinician.
Whether you’re wrapping up your graduate studies to enter the field, or you are a working therapist who is trying explore new paths to further build the career you want, we believe we can help you set a complete path with this course.
Our curriculum includes:
  • An outline of the work settings for mental health clinicians, including opportunities of which you may have never thought
  • Creating expectations for you’re earning potential, as well as opportunities to quickly pay off your student debt.
  • Looking at some of the most dynamic job markets in the United State, looking at how factors of cost-of-living, job growth, and the expansion of telehealth, are all providing unique opportunities for new and established therapists.
  • How to develop therapy niches that are both impactful and in-demand, creating more opportunity in your career
  • Creating a sharp résumé/CV, and establishing your online presence in a way that benefits your career (Templates Included).
  • Considering the pros and cons of further education, like a doctorate or specialty certifications.
  • New therapist guidance in navigating supervision & licensure (Supervision Tracker Template Included)
  • Settings rhythms of selfcare in your work as a clinician.

This course has come from the current passions and past struggles of our instructor, Dr. David Hall. David was 25 years old when he graduated with his Master in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2006. His masters program had given him good clinical training, but he felt he had little-to-no guidance as to how to build his career, nor even a very good understanding of most of his career options. He stumbled forward, making some wrong turns, but generally finding paths for positive growth. Since then, David has worked as a therapist in 2 states, had jobs in treatment centers and group practices, completed a doctorate, earned multiple clinical licenses and certifications, served on a state association board, and started a psychiatry practice, a counseling clinic, and a teaching/consulting business for to help others working in behavioral health.
