    We believe that…

    • Regulations need to keep the public safe and supported AND empower clinicians to be their best and feel their best while doing the work they love. These aren’t competing values.
    • Therapists are in the trenches and our insights matter. We’re uniquely positioned to elevate unheard voices and foster collaboration. Wise public policy brings therapists to the table.
    • We are strongest as a unified voice. Empowering therapists in all practice settings, and at all stages on their professional journey, makes for a stronger community and more joyful and effective clinicians.

    And we’re currently working on…

    • Opening doors for newer clinicians and keeping therapy sustainable for seasoned ones.
    • Policy advocacy, for our profession and Arizona, that supports therapists and clients.
    • A resource collection for peer support, big growth, and therapist self-care/support.
    • Securing stakeholder status for a private practitioner caucus at our board.
    • Moving legislation that empowers clinicians and clients in the market.

    Please reach out to book a consultation to discuss your needs, dreams, and passions today. We can put together a plan for individual support, group learning experiences, collaborative projects, or anything else calling out for action!!!


    Kick in to fund our efforts

    Advocacy can’t run on enthusiasm, community, and coffee alone! 😉 In order to make real change, we need to engage our trusted team of experts in media, lobbying, and organizing. Powerful change, like advocating at the Capitol and getting the Counseling Compact to the finish line, require the resources so that we can give it our FULL attention and best effort. Please kick in here, at the only mental health professional association in our state singularly focused on accomplishing the changes we need, for our professional community and the clients we serve.
