So many of my guests on The Trauma Therapist | Podcast
have said, in one way or another, that It's Not What You Know. It's Who You Are.
 
I love that! It inspires me!
 
And I think it's taken me some time to truly live that and to own that.
 
I'm planning a live, online, 10-Day training/workshop/experience for new trauma therapists called The Heart-Centered Therapist.
 
Learn more here: http://bit.ly/2tvQrhv
 
This is also for anyone in the helping professions: therapists, social workers, counselors, coaches etc.
 
The Heart-Centered Therapist, live, 10-Day training/workshop is about uncovering and honoring the unique and incredible person that you are, and learning to bring that to the work you do.
 
Who you are--your story, your experiences, and the degree to which you either shove them down and run from them, or own and honor them, impacts and influences your work with those who've been impacted by trauma.
 
Join me for a 10-Day, online training/workshop/experience over Zoom video.
 
Date:
Monday, March 4 thru 8 and then Monday, March 11 thru 15.
11 am PST
