 “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.”
