Do any of these apply to you?

You feel isolated at work. No one on your campus works with kids in quite the same way as you do. You’ve tried to share with family and friends, but they just don’t get it. You don’t blame them, yet the encounters leave you feeling isolated…Yes, they’re your village, but they can’t fully understand the situation you are in. They can’t fully understand the complexity of your work, nor are they able to offer the ideas and resources that you often crave.  Or perhaps…

You are working with a child and feel totally in over your head. The biggest imposter syndrome. You are feeling those grad school vibes, when you weren’t as sure of yourself. You don’t have time to go down another Google rabbit hole to find just the right intervention to help this particular child.

This work is seriously tough. I was never burned out; I always loved the work. I was just unbearably depleted…the system, the bandwidth, the caseload, the moral injury, you know what I mean.

But you don’t have to stay in a state of overwhelm. There is a better way. The KINSHIP CLUB way.

There is power in community. The KINSHIP CLUB is the FAM you didn’t realize how much you needed.

Yet, you look at your jam-packed schedule and think there is no time to be a part of another group or community. But mentally and emotionally can you afford not to? Real Talk: burnout is at an all time high in our profession.  This community of splendid & magnificent humans (just like you!) are the ultimate antidote to the frustration and will help you ride those burnout waves. 

Or perhaps the thought of spending the money is making you pause. Think of it as an investment in yourself, the best form of self-care. 

You’re not the only one who has said, “If I just hang in here, things will get better.” Yes, because you are that kind of human. Strong, diligent, caring, committed to making kids’ lives better. It doesn’t have to be this hard. Come join our restorative, healing and downright fun community of mental health professionals who help kids.

sarah heart belongs to social work

Hi! I’m Sarah…

My therapy gig began somewhere around my 10th birthday when I opened up a counseling office in the corner of the living room. My family would squeeze into the tiny space I created behind the couch and share their thoughts, feelings, hopes and dreams (that’s how I remember it anyways…). I was hooked. 

Fast-forward a few decades and here I am – still trying my best to give out high quality doses of comfort, kinship and connection.

My experiences with moral injury in the Social Work field helped shape the clinician I am now. Those experiences also left me depleted, exhausted, and with a constant case of the existential blues. There was a lot of inner conflict & turmoil that came with the territory.

I loved working in schools and didn’t want to leave my job. But I was overflowing with resentment for those F&$#! charts and everything they represented. 

Something had to change… 

So I signed up for my first play therapy class. And holy moly! it was some of the most life-giving, light you up inside kind of stuff I had ever experienced. I needed to know more about this extraordinary way of thinking about and being with children.

I want you to catch that same play therapy fever that I caught all those years ago.

“I am here to help mental health professionals learn to take care of themselves while they improve the quality of care they provide to the kids they serve. Inside the KINSHIP CLUB you will cultivate resilience so you can continue to do the work you were made to do.”

Is the KINSHIP CLUB right for you? 

Are you…skipping lunch, working late, and worrying about the humans you serve long after your work day has ended?

AND you…

  • Want to feel a part of a community.
  • Need to be reminded of what you love about this work.
  • Thrive on learning and professional development that are relevant, meaningful, FUN, and accessible (no need to take a full day off work or travel far).

The KINSHIP CLUB is right for you!

Reach out TODAY and become a part of the KINSHIP CLUB Family.

This work can feel heavy, heartbreaking & downright isolating. The KINSHIP CLUB is an oasis of calm amidst the chaos.

I’ll be with you every step of the way to help you to feel SEEN, HEARD and VALUED. It is time to make a decision to have the personalized support, wealth of resources and warm connection with “like-hearted” colleagues.

I cannot wait to see you develop your skills as an amazing mental health clinician and to see your confidence with kids soar. Let’s connect over shared belly laughs and deep conversations inside the KINSHIP CLUB!

Loving you big time, Fam.

Sarah
