Our Story. 

Work in Progress grew out of a dream that therapists and other mental health providers could access a community that felt inclusive, diverse, safe and respectful so that they could show up as their best selves for the people they support.

By creating both a virtual and physical community, Work in Progress strives to cultivate a like-minded and diverse collective of mental health workers who embrace flexible work arrangements, rest, and opportunities for building their ideal practice. Work in Progress is committed to opportunities for teaching and learning (as well as unlearning) and offers peer/group supervision as part of

each practitioner’s contract.

We believe that good therapy should be accessible for all bodies. A rate reduction program for clients that simultaneously benefits the therapist has been developed

at Work in Progress. We are always open to collaboration and feedback. We are all works in progress.
