According to Joyce Marter, LCPC, licensed psychotherapist and author of The Financial Mindset Fix: A Mental Fitness Program for an Abundant Life, ideas for connecting with fellow therapists include:
- Join your professional association and become involved in membership activities. Meet people in your area by getting involved at the local or state level. If you have the time, volunteer or work at a conference.
- Join online listserv or social media groups for therapists in your geographic area or who specialize in your area of interest. Make sure to post and engage. Nobody likes a silent lurker.
- Attend continuing education training. If you’re comfortable going in person, you can ask others to get coffee during a break. Swap business cards and LinkedIn info and reach out with a professional note post-conference.
- Get involved in your graduate training program’s alumni association and network. They will likely have in-person and virtual events.
