Natalie Frank, Ph.D. (Clinical Psychology), I’m sorry that you had to go through all of this. In professional life, that is extremely hurtful. But, I think that in hindsight, it is also their loss. I hope you find other professional opportunities for yourself. Perhaps, you are not meant to be in those groups anyway. Maybe it’s better to branch out anyway. I imagine it will take some to recover. But, know that you are a tremendous writer and psychologist. No one can take those things from you. As long as you continue to practice your art, you are standing up for yourself. Btw, I love that you wrote about this. You have every right to.
