EBTC - East Bay Therapist Community

A Gateway to a Connected Therapist Collective


Being a therapist is a journey that can sometimes feel lonely.
But it doesn't have to be.

As therapists, we often find ourselves in solitary spaces, behind closed doors,
delving into the depths of others' most intimate experiences.

We share in their joys and sorrows, yet the demands of our profession limit our ability
to freely share these experiences with our cherished ones.

We understand the unique struggles of our profession, from the rewarding moments
to the heart-wrenching ones.

The weight of loss, particularly when a client's journey takes a tragic turn,
can be a burden carried alone, understood best by our fellow therapists.

At EBTC, we're more than just a therapist networking hub; we're a dream brought to life. Founded by Nes Pinar, who is passionate about uniting people to build meaningful communities, EBTC is a manifestation of years of dreaming and conversations with fellow therapists. It's a space where we jump into the depths of collective wisdom, leaning on each other for support and knowledge.
