"As therapists it is often hard to find a space where you don't have to maintain a therapist persona. At Oasis Well Being we are committed to creating opportunities that allow you to participate without the worry of this persona, where you can be human, where you can receive meaningful support."
Integrative Self Care
We understand that mental health professionals and social workers need a safe space where they, too, can do the inner-work that is crucial to their wellness. One of our core goals, is to thoughtfully and intentionally create an OASIS, a meaningful space specifically designed for mental health professionals and social workers. With our program OASIS: Integrative Self Care for Therapists, we're providing a safe space where the inner-work is more than a conversation about self-care, it is a process of integrating meaningful self-care into your daily practices.
Creating Space for You
OASIS SELF-CARE FOR THERAPISTS
Create space in your life, prioritize alignment with yourself, and embrace your inner-work.

CREATE A SPACE IN YOUR LIFE WHERE YOU CAN PRIORITIZE ALIGNMENT WITH YOU
Move through your own human emotions with support and in community with other therapists. As a group we are not only having conversations about the difficult experiences we have as therapists but also as individuals. We are paying attention to our bodies, and the dysregulation and regulations in our nervous systems to help us process trauma, grief, and other emotions that we are feeling and dealing with as therapists and humans. Regulating our nervous systems so important for us to do given that we are exposed to many additional traumas as we listen, hold space and help our clients each day.
EXPERIENCE A SAFE SPACE DESIGNED ONLY FOR THERAPISTS
It is our commitment to create space where therapists can do the deeper work; have the harder discussions about the things that are going on; move beyond the clinical supervision model and peer support groups where we talk about clinical interventions, so we can deep dive into meaningful self-care. This space is about allowing therapists to be human and take care of their human sides.
MEDITATE, MOVE, BREATHE
In our group, we use somatic exercises: meditation, movement, breathwork, bioenergetic exercises. We talk about polyvagal theory and how our autonomic nervous systems get dysregulated. We explore the ways that we can re-regulate - so that we can discover where things are getting stuck, how they are getting stuck, and what helps you as an individual to move through these moments and events.
FIND YOUR FLOW, CREATE YOUR OASIS SELF-CARE PROGRAM
In this program, we aren’t just reviewing self-care tasks, we're actually practicing them together. We are setting aside 2 hours a week to dive in, take care of ourselves, and then go another step deeper to identify the things that we can do in between those sessions. We discover how we can really embody the practices and fully integrate them into our lives. By the end of the 6-week program our participants are walking away with practices they have integrated into their lives that can be used over the long-term, and they have experienced creating them with support from other therapists who share common needs.
WHO IS THIS PROGRAM FOR?
Mental Health Professionals fully or limited licensed- social workers, marriage and family therapists, counselors, psychologists, art therapists who are working (or have worked in the past) in a setting where they are providing mental health support services to the public.
