 “Working at TCP I have been able to grow and find my voice as a therapist. It is so important to have community support in a field that can be isolating at times, and I have found this at TCP through excellent group supervision and programming for staff members. The feminist nature of the organization also makes TCP a workplace where I actually feel that my voice is heard, which is something quite unique.”

“I love working at TCP because the staff is full of therapists who are curious, open, and willing to grow with their clients.”

“I love working for TCP because I have the freedom and support to practice from my unique perspective and be my authentic self as a clinician, while maintaining connection to an amazing group of dynamic feminist therapists.”
