Healers & Helpers 2020: A Therapy Matchmaking Event

Our 3rd Annual Healers & Helpers: A Virtual Mental Wellness Matchmaking Event (FKA "Therapy Speed Dating") is finally here.

Everything is taking place via Zoom and scheduling will be through Calendly. Detailed instructions will be sent to registered participants. A new additional this year is our Featured Helpers panel segment that will highlight a few of the Helper's work on LIVE and Zoom so tune in the day of to learn more about these Helpers before meeting them on Zoom.
