“NJAWT is truly a wonderful organization that lives up to its mission statement. I joined with the desire to meet more professionals to connect and network with and also to advance my clinical knowledge. Both goals have been met in spades. I’ve met incredible women who are not only my colleagues and great resources but have become friends. The programs and support groups have been both interesting and effective in creating opportunities for sharing and learning. I am so happy to be a member and encourage all women therapists to join this great organization of professionals.”

“NJAWT has been so valuable to me over the last 9 years, especially when I began my private practice and moved to New Jersey. The ability to be part of a community where I can meet Entrepreneurial women within the mental health field and, who in many cases, also have a private practice, has allowed me a chance to network, socialize and learn from others. I am forever grateful for the opportunity this organization has given me to become more familiar with Jersey and to meet other therapists right away.”

“One of the greatest benefits of being an NJAWT member are the specialized practice groups that meet monthly to share ideas and support each other in our professional practice.”
