Frame – FREE Online Recorded Workshops by Frame – Weekdays and Weekends @ Online
Jan 30 all-day

Visit link: tryframe.com

WHAT IF I’M JUST NOT READY TO TRY THERAPY?

That’s OK. The L.A.-based mental health startup Frame hosts digital workshops, led by licensed therapists, “for people who aren’t ready to try therapy,” said the company’s CEO Kendall Bird.

“It’s a way for people around the country — and specifically in Los Angeles — to get a sense of what therapy could be like for them, to have a better understanding of what you can talk about in therapy and also to learn that there are really different styles of therapists,” she said.

For people not ready or wanting to seek counseling with a therapist just yet, but who could use some information on common topics Frame offers FREE anonymous, online recorded workshops led by licensed therapists from the Frame network, designed to leave you with tangible tools for real life. Tune in when and where it works for you, as a supplement to your in-person sessions, or as a convenient way to explore specific topics and learn about what gets talked about in therapy.

SUPPORT IN YOUR COMMUNITY

Military Survivor Helpline

 

Please note this program is specifically designed for survivors grieving the death of a military loved one.

Individual grief counseling is important to many survivors in our grief journeys. The opportunity to sit one-on-one with a skilled therapist who understands grief and trauma can help you work through some of the hardest parts of your loss. Finding the right fit is important, and we can help. The right grief counselor can help you discover strengths, develop your own coping skills, and help you work through questions, changes in relationships, and secondary losses.

We rely on a large network of strong community partners, and we are confident we can connect you with resources specific to your needs. Each resource has been verified and actively supports the TAPS mission. We do careful research and compile resources with love and care.

Call our military survivor helpline

800-959-TAPS (8277)

or

to be connected with grief and trauma resources.

WHAT IF I’M JUST NOT READY TO TRY THERAPY?

That’s OK. The L.A.-based mental health startup Frame hosts digital workshops, led by licensed therapists, “for people who aren’t ready to try therapy,” said the company’s CEO Kendall Bird.

“It’s a way for people around the country — and specifically in Los Angeles — to get a sense of what therapy could be like for them, to have a better understanding of what you can talk about in therapy and also to learn that there are really different styles of therapists,” she said.

For people not ready or wanting to seek counseling with a therapist just yet, but who could use some information on common topics Frame offers FREE anonymous, online recorded workshops led by licensed therapists from the Frame network, designed to leave you with tangible tools for real life. Tune in when and where it works for you, as a supplement to your in-person sessions, or as a convenient way to explore specific topics and learn about what gets talked about in therapy.

Frame workshops:

Topics include but are not limited to:

For now, linking up directly with a therapist or counselor through Frame may only available for California residents, but you can add your name to a waiting list.  If you have insurance, you may want to contact them regarding providers in the network.  If you do not have insurance, you may want to explore community based services and/or faith based services that may offer Free or Sliding Scale services.  Or you may want to explore other self-help options online.

SUPPORT IN YOUR COMMUNITY

Military Survivor Helpline

 

Please note this program is specifically designed for survivors grieving the death of a military loved one.

Individual grief counseling is important to many survivors in our grief journeys. The opportunity to sit one-on-one with a skilled therapist who understands grief and trauma can help you work through some of the hardest parts of your loss. Finding the right fit is important, and we can help. The right grief counselor can help you discover strengths, develop your own coping skills, and help you work through questions, changes in relationships, and secondary losses.

We rely on a large network of strong community partners, and we are confident we can connect you with resources specific to your needs. Each resource has been verified and actively supports the TAPS mission. We do careful research and compile resources with love and care.

Call our military survivor helpline

800-959-TAPS (8277)

or

email info@taps.org

to be connected with grief and trauma resources.

Frame – FREE Online Recorded Workshops by Frame – Weekdays and Weekends @ Online
Feb 1 all-day

Visit link: tryframe.com

WHAT IF I’M JUST NOT READY TO TRY THERAPY?

That’s OK. The L.A.-based mental health startup Frame hosts digital workshops, led by licensed therapists, “for people who aren’t ready to try therapy,” said the company’s CEO Kendall Bird.

“It’s a way for people around the country — and specifically in Los Angeles — to get a sense of what therapy could be like for them, to have a better understanding of what you can talk about in therapy and also to learn that there are really different styles of therapists,” she said.

For people not ready or wanting to seek counseling with a therapist just yet, but who could use some information on common topics Frame offers FREE anonymous, online recorded workshops led by licensed therapists from the Frame network, designed to leave you with tangible tools for real life. Tune in when and where it works for you, as a supplement to your in-person sessions, or as a convenient way to explore specific topics and learn about what gets talked about in therapy.

Frame workshops:

Topics include but are not limited to:

For now, linking up directly with a therapist or counselor through Frame may only available for California residents, but you can add your name to a waiting list.  If you have insurance, you may want to contact them regarding providers in the network.  If you do not have insurance, you may want to explore community based services and/or faith based services that may offer Free or Sliding Scale services.  Or you may want to explore other self-help options online.

SUPPORT IN YOUR COMMUNITY

Military Survivor Helpline

 

Please note this program is specifically designed for survivors grieving the death of a military loved one.

Individual grief counseling is important to many survivors in our grief journeys. The opportunity to sit one-on-one with a skilled therapist who understands grief and trauma can help you work through some of the hardest parts of your loss. Finding the right fit is important, and we can help. The right grief counselor can help you discover strengths, develop your own coping skills, and help you work through questions, changes in relationships, and secondary losses.

We rely on a large network of strong community partners, and we are confident we can connect you with resources specific to your needs. Each resource has been verified and actively supports the TAPS mission. We do careful research and compile resources with love and care.

Call our military survivor helpline

800-959-TAPS (8277)

WHAT IF I’M JUST NOT READY TO TRY THERAPY?

That’s OK. The L.A.-based mental health startup Frame hosts digital workshops, led by licensed therapists, “for people who aren’t ready to try therapy,” said the company’s CEO Kendall Bird.

“It’s a way for people around the country — and specifically in Los Angeles — to get a sense of what therapy could be like for them, to have a better understanding of what you can talk about in therapy and also to learn that there are really different styles of therapists,” she said.

For people not ready or wanting to seek counseling with a therapist just yet, but who could use some information on common topics Frame offers FREE anonymous, online recorded workshops led by licensed therapists from the Frame network, designed to leave you with tangible tools for real life. Tune in when and where it works for you, as a supplement to your in-person sessions, or as a convenient way to explore specific topics and learn about what gets talked about in therapy.

Frame workshops:

For now, linking up directly with a therapist or counselor through Frame may only available for California residents, but you can add your name to a waiting list.  If you have insurance, you may want to contact them regarding providers in the network.  If you do not have insurance, you may want to explore community based services and/or faith based services that may offer Free or Sliding Scale services.  Or you may want to explore other self-help options online.

SUPPORT IN YOUR COMMUNITY

Military Survivor Helpline

 

Please note this program is specifically designed for survivors grieving the death of a military loved one.

Individual grief counseling is important to many survivors in our grief journeys. The opportunity to sit one-on-one with a skilled therapist who understands grief and trauma can help you work through some of the hardest parts of your loss. Finding the right fit is important, and we can help. The right grief counselor can help you discover strengths, develop your own coping skills, and help you work through questions, changes in relationships, and secondary losses.

We rely on a large network of strong community partners, and we are confident we can connect you with resources specific to your needs. Each resource has been verified and actively supports the TAPS mission. We do careful research and compile resources with love and care.

Call our military survivor helpline
