Prior to working at Carolina Pediatric Therapy, I worked in work settings where the professional was measured by their productivity and how much money they made the agency. I did not feel appreciated or taken care of, and I certainly did not feel like I was a part of a team. So when I came to CPT, I was burnt out and a little suspicious of anyone that said that they wanted me to flourish, work in my giftings, or be a part of a greater picture of helping kids and families do these same things.
But over the last three years, my trust has been gained 100 times over and then some. I have found my people. And who knew that it was a group of physical, occupational, and speech therapists? People who care about each other and want to change children and family lives for the better. The great part is that they take care of me in the process. I no longer feel like I’m valued by my productivity, but rather just by being me. It has empowered me to be a better therapist and to work alongside of people who value the important things. Behavioral Health was a field I wanted to go into in order to support kids and families in difficult seasons, and finally I have found a group of people that are making it happen.
