You're struggling with the Killer Bs:



You're feeling insecure about owning your expertise and pursuing your passion.

T H E  S T R U G G L E


You know you were meant for more . . .

You are working hard to build a business, while serving your clients, but you're at a loss for how to grow, market, and nurture your business, as well as how to communicate your expertise with confidence.

Or, maybe you don’t yet have a business, and you’re not sure whether to climb the ladder, or to create work that moves you. You’re confused by all the possiblities--private practce (group or solo?), coaching, online therapy, writing, speaking, and on and on. You’ve done the research, but you don't know where to begin. You love being a therapist, but you’re ready for work that feeds your soul and lets you live your life!




The Refreshed Therapist Network is an online community where you will:


Say "bye" to burnout + career disappointment.

Reject limitations placed on you by others (and yourself).

Design work that blends your training with your passion (NO one-size-fit-all businesses in here!)

Put yourself on your schedule and make yourself a priority.

Grow your mindset, push through fear, and take action!

--all while continuing to expand your therapy knowledge and expertise.


This is all possible within an encouraging community of like-minded therapists.

Learn how to design a career you love--straight from the experts who've done it.

Let go of isolation and stress by finding answers when you need them.

Create your career vision, one step at a time.





The refreshed therapist life begins when . . .

you not only know the possibilities that exist, but you also feel supported as you sift through the right options for creating work you love. It's fueled by systems that save you time in your work and business, freeing you to focus on the essentials--the people and activities that energize you.

Through stories of therapists who've created innovative careers, recognize that there are no limits to what you can accomplish. Rest in your personal mission, and let it infuse your work, as you become the designer of your career.

  • Own your expertise in every way, and market yourself with confidence.
  • Find time, consistently, for the activities and people you love most.
  • Understand how to move from where you are now in your work/business life, to where you want to be.

Working as a therapist in private practice can sometimes be isolating, and it's an ongoing challenge to stay up-to-speed on what's happening in the field. The Refreshed Therapist Network showed up at just the right time for me, and I've gotten tremendous value from all it has to offer. The timely and relevant content keeps me informed, and it encourages me to know I have access to a community of likeminded professionals who can relate to my experiences in practice. RTN is a fabulous resource for therapists, regardless of their discipline or practice setting, and I'm grateful it exists!

The RTN offers a safe place for therapists to find support and inspiration. I joined right after graduating with a degree in counseling.  Navigating the professional landscape as a new therapist was confusing and overwhelming for me.  Ili and the community of therapists offer me invaluable insights and advice on topics like job hunting, supervision issues, state licensing requirements, self-care, . . . that I was not able to find anywhere else.  I highly recommend joining!

Being a therapist is a particularly difficult job. We are exposed to a lot of pain. And expected to help. Self care for a therapist is, therefore, a particular need. The Refreshed Therapist Network is a great way to connect with other therapists and take a deeper look at your own self care. There are so many helpful resources in there to support you and your practice.  And the monthly masterclasses give you something new to connect with every month. If you are a therapist looking to make connections and revive yourself, RTN is a great place to start.

Carey Jeffrey, RTN founding member:

I discovered Refreshed Therapist Network on Pinterest. I was impressed with RTN's relevant information and mission. I thought "RTN is just what I need now." [Before RTN] I felt paralyzed and discouraged. I now feel enormously better! 

Kimberley Mapel, Grow Level member, private practice:

I really enjoy the RTN mastermind calls, and appreciate this opportunity...I feel like I am growing, and that feels AMAZING! . . . Feeling optimistic that these much needed changes will transform from an intention to habit!! Thanks, Ili Rivera Walter and to all in the member's room for your support! --Kimberley M., Grow Level member

Julia Gutgsell, Learn Level member, therapist-in-training, United Kingdom:

[RTN] is immensely helpful. I particularly enjoy that whenever I have a question, I am able to ask others about it and don't have to wait until I see my supervisor. I really enjoy the book club . . . I am also finding the videos with other therapists really interesting [i.e., the masterclasses], as it helps me to kind of figure out what kind of therapist I am (if that makes sense). I think my main take away, as a trainee therapist is that it gives me a broad framework and mindset . . . [also] speaking to other professionals, with lots of experience and with diverse therapeutic modality has been really helpful.

Behind the Scenes: Your Facilitator

  Ili Rivera Walter, PhD, LMFT    Therapist mentor + community builder

Ili Rivera Walter, PhD, LMFT

Therapist mentor + community builder

Hi. I'm Ili, the founder and facilitator of The Refreshed Therapist Network. This community is a project of passion and need. You see, as a therapist, I've experienced isolation in work and confusion in business. I've also had to face tough decisions about how to prioritize my values, and the people I love, while contributing to the world as a therapist. I built this network, so that you don't have to face these experiences without support.

I've also longed to pick the brains of other therapists, as well as my therapy mentors and heroes. Through this network, I bring you these interviews and classes, in order to shorten your learning curve and nurture new, exciting ideas for your life and work.

I LOVE being a therapist--a marriage and family therapist in particular, and I believe that being a therapist is the BEST profession in the world. It also brings unique challenges.

There's a ton of information "out there" for therapists about building private practices and learning specific theories. Until now (until RTN), however, there hasn't been a community where we could go to break out of limitations, create innovate businesses, and get honest about what it means to live life as a therapist. Welcome to this new space.

Although I am a seasoned therapist, and I have areas of expertise, I am not the only expert of this community. I also facilitate others' expertise, and bring it to you, so that you have a wealth of information and perspectives.



As a member of RTN, you are continually nurtured through resources, encouragement, and community. As a therapist, I understand your struggles. I built this community based on my knowledge of the therapist life. It is designed to inspire you, make your work more efficient, and support you as you achieve your goals. Within community, we can accomplish so much more!



Find support daily for cultivating a lifestyle of soul care, communicating your personal brand + expertise, and pursuing your work with passion!

As a result of being a member, you will:

  • learn from those who've been there and done it
  • gain courage through a community that will cheer for you
  • shorten your learning curve through guest experts' stories and instruction
  • feel confident that you're creating work that fits your interests, strengths, and vision
  • understand how to live refreshed as a therapist


This community is designed to be a one-stop-shop for you--where you will save time, see results, love your work, and live your life!

Don't wait.
