About the Salon Series:

This monthly salon series is a chance to network, share, discuss and learn about different aspects of therapy: how the relationship heals, workplace demands, the spiritual lens, self-care, developmental perspectives, creativity, etc. The goal of the evening is to facilitate a rich discussion and connection among the participant about interesting clinical issues.
