MasterClass Series – clinical trainings designed to build therapeutic competency & mastery
“Never become so much of an expert that you stop gaining expertise. View life as a continuous learning experience.”
The world of therapy is always growing and changing and there are amazing resources everywhere, right at our fingertips! While resources are truly abundant, it can be overwhelming & daunting to try and learn so much in isolation through an online resource, book or training tape. It might also feel like we are only scratching the surface of many theories when we learn in isolation and still long for a deeper understanding in learning & clinical application that is only possible through relationship.
The intention of each MasterClass Series is to create a safe learning community where we can scratch beneath surface in an effort to develop deeper level of competencies & confidence for each therapist. We are trending toward mastery of each person’s own therapeutic skillset while fostering a safe learning environment to be curious, interactive and challenged where your personal learning & growing edge is.
Each MC Series will have its own theme which is the focus for 6, 90 minute classes. Group training classes are designed to be small for optimal, personal learning and therefore participation will be limited to 6 students/class.
These trainings will help you:
- Gain clarity on conceptualization of attachment based model being explored (EFT, Somatic Experiencing, PolyVegal Theory, etc)
- Map out how to implement clinical skills of model in your own work
- Assist in the development of your own personal therapeutic style
- Bolster competence & confidence
- Feed your hunger & curiosity in learning

“Being the ‘best you can be’ is really only possible when you are
deeply connected to another. Splendid isolation is for planets, not people.”
