Let's start with my absolute favorite group: a group for assessment clinicians contemplating their next step. Leveling Out and Leveling Up: Assessment Clinicians Contemplating What's Next
You're amazing at what you do. But lately, the work hasn't felt so amazing. Are you burned out? Overwhelmed? Looking for a way out? Or maybe you're ready to take your career to the next level -- but you're not sure what that next step looks like?
Come contemplate your next steps with other caring, compassionate clinicians who know exactly what you're going through.
In this group, we'll talk about how to level out if you feel like you're sinking into burnout and overwhelm. We'll also make a plan for how to level up to the next stage of your career.
This is not a "self care" group. We'll be getting practical and getting real. At each session, we'll review one of the five options for leveling out and leveling up: Moving On, Moving Out, Moving In, Leaning In, and Moving Up.
We'll decide how that option could fit with your core values and align with your real life. We'll provide each other with ideas, inspiration, and accountability. This is a group for re-shaping our hearts, our minds, or our jobs, to better fit what we need at this stage of our career.
When Do We Meet:
This 6-week session will be held on Friday Mornings, 9 AM Pacific (12PM Eastern). 90 minutes each session, starting January 6, 2023.
What's the Cost:
$90 per session ($540 total)
What's the Format:
This is a structured course. We follow a workbook that's packed full of ideas, exercises, and self-assessments. (Want a sneak peek? Take a look at the pic below!) We discuss what we're learning as a group and have lots of time to apply what we're discovering to our own lives.
Who's It Right For: Best fit for assessment clinicians who are 5-25 years into their career, or anyone who has dreamed of leaving assessment behind to open up a pop-up Taco Shop. Participation Limited to 6-8 clinicians. Where Do I Sign Up: Click here
And here's more info on my most popular course, gearing up for our 6th session:
A 5-week Course to Whip Your Reports Into Shape
Whether you're looking to write reports that are more effective, more efficient, or more aligned with your values, this 5-week program is for you.
We'll focus finding your highest value as an assessor, so you can enhance what you already do well while streamlining the rest.
This small group will provide support and accountability along with practical suggestions and real-world exercises. We follow a set structure, and you get a PowerPoint workbook for each week. (Want a sneak peek? See some sample pages in the pic below.)
In about a month, you'll be writing reports that take you less time while showcasing more of your skill. All levels of experience with report-writing welcome.
When Do We Meet:
This 5-week course will be held on Wednesday evenings, 4PM Pacific (7PM Eastern), 90 minutes each session, starting January 4, 2023.
What's the Cost:
$125 per session ($625 total)
Who's It Right For:

And don't forget to sign up for the Winter Cohort of the child, adolescent, and young adult Consult Groups!
Several folks have asked specifically for a group for early career clinicians, so that's on offer this season. There's also a group for all levels of professional experience.
Child Assessment Consult Groups
In these groups, we focus on deepening our clinical practice, one case at a time.
During each meeting, we cover one to two cases presentations per meeting (sign-up in advance, and if preferred, you can talk/ask about a general topic -- e.g., "can we talk about how to give difficult feedback to parents?" -- instead of presenting a case).
Topics we cover include:
Refining the referral question
Listening for the "Secret Questions"
Asking great interview questions
Setting ourselves up to avoid bias
Working through the Four Questions to sort through complex data
Using our test battery strategically
Using ourselves as an assessment tool
Identifying our core values and becoming our own authority
Delivering empowering feedbacks
When Do We Meet: These 6-week sessions meet every other Thursday for 90 minutes.
