The mission of The Counselors Mentor is two fold. The first is to guide and encourage developing counselors through each step of their professional experience, from grad school to private practice. This site is specifically targeted for mental health professionals who need a mentor to help them through their “in between” stage.

My second goal is to reach, teach and inspire the community with mental health support and training. The tips are straight from me, Sarah Rivera, a mental health group practice owner and supervisor who has a zest to inspire growth in any person. The Mentor’s mission is to prompt professional development through supervision, consultation, community support, speaking engagements, and support to launch a private practice.
