THERAPIST BEYOND BORDERS
Change. One Person at a Time
WHO WE ARE
Psychological safety drives stronger engagement and better results.
Therapist Beyond Borders is a social justice consultancy that strives to support organizational transformation by making safety, dignity, and belonging a priority for all staff. The objective of our work centers around creating a culture of vulnerability to counter the hierarchical systems at many organizations that diminish staff experience.
Understanding structural oppression frees organizations from beliefs and policies that can undermine members of historically marginalized groups.
It is essential that top level leaders engage in this foundational work so they may both serve as role models for change in their organizations and skillfully embody awareness.
Therapist Beyond Borders clinicians are licensed, seasoned mental health and organizational development professionals with strong interpersonal skills, vast global experience, and extensive experience with group facilitation.
WHAT WE DO
Are you ready to take your organization and staff from surviving to thriving? We can help reshape the relationships and functions that form the backbone of your organization and allow them to flourish.
MENTAL HEALTH SYSTEM REVIEW
BEYOND DISTRESS IN UNIVERSITY MENTAL HEALTH
Universities nationwide are struggling to meet the demand of students and staff in distress. Counseling centers are flooded with utilization rates spiking to unprecedented levels. Therapist Beyond Borders can perform a comprehensive review that allows university administrators to understand the health and effectiveness of their current support systems, and receive expert guidance on how to creatively envision and implement a better system.
GROUP TRAUMA HEALING
Unexpected events can befall any individual, society or institution without warning. These events can result in strong feelings, rifts and deep wounds that are difficult to heal and overcome, but which can greatly impact how people feel about work, interacting with colleagues, and general outlook.
Therapist Beyond Borders offers psychological first aid, trauma-informed group facilitation, and healing in the aftermath of trauma. We strive to help groups and individuals heal after difficult events, and establish a new, healthier normal.
Most organizations replicate the social inequities that exist in society often without realizing it. Confronting bias means understanding first that it exists in each of us. Anti-oppression efforts begin with basic awareness of how members of privileged groups enjoy unearned advantages and members of marginalized groups are deprived of them, as well as a sense of how often microaggressions occur. Organizations that are committed to anti-oppression workplaces will have regular conversations about topics like race, gender, sexual and gender identity age, disability and national origin.
Therapist Beyond Borders offers workshops that enhance awareness and understanding on topics such as implicit bias, microaggression, race, gender, power and privilege, to support organizations to foster a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace.
