Therapists Who Treat Other Therapists

Therapists need therapy too! While therapists are trained to provide counseling services to their clients they unfortunately can't provide the same service to themselves. Therapists experience burn out, compassion fatigue, counter transference and more while working with clients. A good therapist that want's to stay in tip top shape will receive their own counseling from a practitioner that is trained to treat their fellow colleague. Reach out to one of the qualified specialist below.

Therapists are a particular brand of pain in the ass, especially when in therapy. I know this because I am a terrible patient/client. We need someone who can see us being cerebral and bring us back into our heart and body. I will lovingly challenge you while helping you feel seen, heard and understood. I'll also help your partner feel comfortable and not terrified to be outnumbered as we geek out over therapy jargon.

— Angie Dion, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Those of us on the front lines need someone to talk to too....and our own space to process the unique difficulties surrounding our experiences as we support our communities going through crisis and pandemic adjustments. The void we scream into is full, so I recommend that we each have our own helping professional to debrief with. I specialize in working with therapists and counselors of a variety of backgrounds and work experiences, and can help you sort out counter-transference stress.

— Hannah Zimmerman, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Missoula, MT
 

As therapists, we are often expected (and expect of ourselves) to always be serving. But we know that this is not sustainable and does not honor our work, our gifts, or the people we serve. I am passionate about helping fellow healers prevent or overcome burnout and find sustainable ways to be in this work with longevity. I am intimately aware of vicarious trauma, compassion fatigue, and burnout and this guides my work with fellow activists and healers.

— Briana Driver, Clinical Social Worker in Los Angeles, CA

I have been supervising doctoral and master's level clinicians for the past five years, specifically in their work with a neurodiverse population. For some of these budding clinicians I have had to act as the person "holds space" for them so that they can emerge lighter and ready to be present and attuned with their clients.

— Marivi Acuna, Clinical Psychologist in Fort Worth, TX
 

Secondary trauma, burnout, overworked and underpaid -- perhaps every therapist has been there before. But, I am here to help you reconnect with your passion for helping people, starting first with yourself.

— Tricia Mazza, Psychotherapist in Richmond, VA
 

Being a therapist is hard at times. We are human and struggle at times. Being a therapist can trigger our own issues; and those need to be addressed to be the most effective therapist you can be. And to be the healthiest version of you. For you, your family, friends, and clients. I have had the privilege to work with other therapist's and help guide them through difficult times. I have been the therapist client and know what it is like. Now is the time to give yourself the care you deserve.

— Eric Strom, Clinical Social Worker in Minnetonka, MN

I grew up among therapists and I was client before I became a therapist. I bring a well rounded experiential perspective as well as education and experience in Modern Psychoanalysis, Transpersonal approaches, Dialectic Behavioral Therapy, and mindfulness. I offer an extensive background in group therapy including the experience being a long term participant in several process groups. In my own practice I facilitate DBT groups, process groups, consultation groups and workshops on group dynamics.

— Elizabeth Stahl, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Boulder, CO
 

I am a seasoned therapist with 40 years in the field. I am a former agency clinical director who consulted regularly with the clinical staff. I am a long term clinical supervisor for CSWA's as well. I know intricately the challenges we therapists face in providing services in our clinical practices.... Burnout and Compassion Fatigue are at an all time high in our field. Self care is Key and having your own therapist to process with can help stem the tide of becoming overwhelmed.

— Joseph Doherty, Psychologist in Portland, OR

Therapist & providers for others experience burnout from providing care to their clients, patients & to their own family members. Also, the expectations put on them or they put on themselves. You often wonder where do I fit in & who takes care of me? How do I continue to keep giving, when my reserves are being depleted or empty? I assist therapist/providers with finding the balance amongst their family, career, relationships & most importantly for themselves. Are you ready for selfcare?

— Cheryl Carr, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Hamburg, NY
 

With over 20 years in the field, I understand the challenges associated with our line of work - the fine line between wanting to help yet overextending, the stress, and the pressure. It's often hard to leave work when you have spent the day immersed in the struggles of others. Oftentimes therapists believe that because they are therapists, they "should" be able to handle it on their own. There's no shame in needing support. Give yourself what you need - the same way you give it to others.

— Natalie Bernstein, Clinical Psychologist in Pittsburgh, PA

You place the world before yourself, but after a while your cup runs dry. You are tired or know if you keep this up you will be. Burnout, compassion fatigue & vicarious trauma are real! Here we fill YOUR cup so you can continue to breathe life into your work and/or family. Allow us to hold the space for you to access your inner wisdom. That which you access so easily for others, but struggle to find when you are the one in need. We see you. We appreciate you. We'd be honored to serve you

— Melissa Cramer, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Chapel Hill, NC
 

Burnout. Compassion fatigue. Vicarious trauma. The experiences that we have as therapists often go unacknowledged, unidentified, and untreated. I'd like to change that narrative. In my work as a therapist in high-risk, high-turnover facilities, I found that I had a passion for offering empathetic, supportive counseling to therapists and other helping professionals. I offer a safe, non-judgmental space for you to be honored and supported in your experience as both a therapist and human.

— Briana Driver, Clinical Social Worker in Los Angeles, CA

I have experience treating working professionals including those in the mental health and medical field, as well as first responders. I am trained in trauma, compassion fatigue, and burnout treatments that are effective in helping with everything from vicarious trauma to complex trauma.

— Jessica Arneson, Counselor in ,
 

I have extensive experience with clinical supervision and emotional support of social workers and psychiatrists. I've worked in mental health agencies and hospitals with a diversity of high-risk patients and I aim to support anyone who is experiencing burn-out or compassion fatigue.
