As we left 2020 behind, healing professionals the world over will be challenged to help clients cope in the coming post-COVID world. It’s our duty to prepare with the latest science, therapeutic techniques, and to show up whole ourselves.
It’s what we trained for and what we’ve aspired to over many years.
