I believe that in the field of professional counseling, you can't have too much support, especially from others who can relate to your experiences. My idea is to have a monthly or bi-monthly group to get together as a sort of peer supervision.

I don't want to completely decide at this point what the format of the group will be like. I would rather like to have that as a point of discussion at the first meeting. I am open to having a mixture of sit-down serious supervision sessions and also more social gatherings in an effort to promote self-care and to make friends with one another, not just be each other's peers.  

Who would most likely be a good fit for this group? Anyone who works as a professional counselor (has completed a masters level program)--this includes therapists who are in the process of becoming licensed.  This also includes social workers, expressive therapists, psychiatrists... When I say "young" professionals, I am thinking about the age range of 25-45. I'm excited to get this going! As soon as I see some interest in the group, I will start to plan the first meeting. Can't wait to meet you soon!
