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.

Laura Brassie

Adolescent/Teen Therapy, Child Therapy, Individual Therapy

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.

Jenna Rosenfeld

Individual Therapy

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.
