Consultation groups

What you do is important.

What you do is hard.

You are not alone.

We are here to help.

Counseling can be a lonely venture. Often we wonder if our counsel is wise or if others might have more insight. Just as iron sharpens iron, we sharpen our skills best in community. Connection Point is excited to offer online Consultation Groups to bridge the gap that exists between training and individual practice.
