Early Career Professional Consultation Group
TASHRA also holds a monthly peer consultation group for Early Career Professionals. This group is suited for post-graduate students, interns, and professionals who earned their license no more than seven years ago.
Please contact Kaylie Engel [email protected] to sign up for one of these groups and learning about new group openings.
Groups will be capped at 10 participants. Once we have reached a cap, we will close a group.
Those who attend a meeting will be sent a monthly or quarterly invoice. Each meeting includes a charge of $20. Payment plans are set up individually with participants to fit their financial needs and schedule. We will ask group participants to step back from a group if they miss 3 meetings in a row, in order to facilitate the participation of those who can attend more regularly.
