One of THE best resources for therapists

Dr. Cassidy is my go to resource for all things around being a therapist. From the deep, vulnerable work of being a therapist to creating an authentic social media as a therapist to running a business. She covers it all. I deeply respect her as a therapist, business owner and human. This is well worth a listen from anyone in the mental health field.
