Breaking into this field in 2013, I have had an observation of a paradox with us mental health providers and other independently licensed helping professionals:
- Although our jobs are centered around working with others and it fundamentally pro-social, we tend to be independent loaners working to be islands of high powered helpers.
What I find missing is more collaborative efforts in our fields and specialties.
I strongly believe in the new paradigm that the new competition is collaboration.
I invite other psychotherapists and even other helping providers to collaborate in some form. Either those in my region or through media. I feel that many forward thinking and innovative therapists need to work together to create new projects, agencies, practices or anything else that can happen when we work together.
If interested in some form of collaborative efforts, please contact me!
