The Red Maple Community of Practice

A place for people that develop others... 

My name is Raechel, and I would like to warmly welcome you to the Red Maple Community of Practice. (the "COP"). The COP is a space dedicated to those that do the unique work of developing others. We are located at 41 Erb Street East.


My vision for the COP is to create a community of refreshment, support, and dignity for those that do my work. This special group of people face real, occupational hazards such as burnout, empathy fatigue, and vicarious trauma. I believe the protection we need lies in a strong sense of community together, which is what this space is about. I'd love to hear from you! Send me an e-mail or, beginning September, 2020, stop by 41 Erb Street East in uptown Waterloo. Let's get to know each other!

The Community of Practice is home to a group of therapists, coaches, consultants, and peers that we trust.
