Therapy for Therapists
Being a therapist may make you more prone to compassion fatigue and feelings of overwhelm. Working with a therapist who intimately knows the in’s and out’s of therapy work can be imperative especially when trying to balance one’s personal and professional life. Emotional depletion, vicarious trauma, counter-transference, lack of privacy and isolation are all common issues therapists face as part of their job. Working with a therapist can help you create balance and prevent burnout so that you’re able to better function as not only an individual, but also as a therapist.
Local Experts in Therapy for Therapists
Adolescent/Teen Therapy, Individual Therapy
I work with therapists and therapists-in-training. I love working with this demographic because it's full of people who have dedicated their lives toward self-growth! Motivation is no issue, and we get straight down to the work and to the point.
See above on Compassion Fatigue. Therapy for therapists may look like compassion fatigue, but it could also be more like consultation. You may be triggered by a client or supervisee and simply need to jump into the issue, work through it, and move forward. I trust you as a professional and won't ask you to start at the beginning or be overly gentle. Let's get the work done.
I love working with other therapists. I always encourage them to take themselves out of their role, and just be a person in therapy without having to feel like a professional.
