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 get honest about what it means to live life as a therapist, while growing in therapy skills and business acumen. Welcome to this new space.
Although I am a seasoned therapist, and I have areas of expertise (you can read more about me, and the RTN story, here), 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.
