Therapists Supporting Therapists, One Conversation at a Time
Heal Us Forward is a therapist-only membership community that provides the opportunity for therapists to give and receive peer support.
We invite you to join, connect with other therapists, have restorative conversations, and FIND YOUR PEOPLE!
Introducing a revolutionary site that is intended to address the health and welfare of therapists by offering unlimited one-on-one meetings with other licensed therapists, as well as the opportunity to give/attend talks and form smaller ongoing groups with those who have similar interests…all for the low, super-affordable membership fee of $10/month!
“Only what is really oneself has the power to heal.”
—Dr. C.G. Jung (CW 7, para. 258)
Be one of the first 50 people to join* and lock in our Founding Member rate. As a special gift to our Founding Members, we guarantee that your rate will never increase as long as you remain a member!
*To join, you must apply and pay a $10 one-time application fee. Only licensed therapists will be accepted.
Is This Right For You?
Heal Us Forward is meant to help the helpers, to provide the opportunity to those who are used to being givers to take some time to receive, as well. Being a therapist can be tough on you and your loved ones, and having this accessible and affordable network of support from other members going through the same things as you can help with stress management and burnout.
Heal Us Forward is about working toward improved balance and wellness with the support of our peers…and you most likely will feel as good from contributing your support as you will from receiving it.
“The antidote to exhaustion is not more rest.
—David Whyte, poet
Why is this important?
Research points to the myriad benefits of compassion and social connection:
- More balance. You’re in a better position for dealing with negative emotions and thoughts.
- Increased happiness. In one compelling study, a key difference between very happy people and less-happy people was good relationships.
- Deeper meaning. Compassion brings meaning, and researchers have found that living a life of meaning is one of the greatest determinants of happiness. Not only does compassion ensure depth, fulfillment and purpose in our lives, studies show that it has powerful health benefits and even leads to a longer life!
- Better health. Loneliness was associated with a higher risk of high blood pressure in a recent study of older people.
- A longer life. People with strong social and community ties were two to three times less likely to die during a 9-year study.
What this is meant to be used for:
- taking the opportunity to connect with other therapists.
- having restorative conversations.
- sharing wisdom, nurturance, and mentorship.
- supporting and holding space for each other.
- meeting, socializing, and networking with colleagues in other locations, including sharing your ideas and approaches with each other…FINDING YOUR PEOPLE!!
- creating a safe space for therapists to find each other…like an “exclusive club” that only therapists can access.
- finding a person who truly “gets it” for you to relate with and vent…especially if you have nobody strong enough to lean into.
- ensuring your social support system is more consistently nourishing and balanced. It’s hard for therapists to receive!
- lowering the levels of burnout associated with being a therapist.
- staying better connected to your Self, so you can be more of your Self in the world and with those you love.
What this is NOT meant to be used for:
- THERAPY. Think connecting, networking, coaching, supporting, chatting, sharing, venting, and bouncing ideas off each other instead (observing the limits of confidentiality, obviously)…but NOT therapy.
- establishing any sort of doctor-patient or therapist-client relationship.
- sharing of confidential information about clients, which should NEVER be disclosed.
- making any sort of diagnosis or attempting to replace the judgment of a qualified licensed healthcare provider.
- any form of emergency or otherwise psychological or medical treatment.
- Please note that Heal Us Forward, LLC is NOT a healthcare provider, and this website is NOT intended to be a substitute for professional medical or psychological advice, diagnosis, or treatment.
