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.

I provide respectful place to allow a therapist to walk through their every day life without shame or the burden to be a caretaker. Allow for discussion around delimas both through their professional or personal life. Getting support from a someone who understands the helping profession so intimately fosters vulnerablity, problem solving, and saying things without having to measure their words or meaning.

— Amanda Fink, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor in Waxhaw, NC

You actually know what you need to do - you’re a trained therapist after all. You guide people through this every day and ask them to trust the process and trust themselves. I've seen so many therapists fail to practice what they preach. Many of us are overworked and underpaid, feeling more than burnout and imposter syndrome, but moral injury. What if you could create a truly nourishing practice that promotes your own well being *while* being client centered? I can help!

— Rachel Gabrielle, Counselor in Seattle, WA
 

I have worked with many therapists who needed treatment themselves. Therapists are human, too and just because we know what resources, tools, and practices can be helpful does not mean they are easily integrated into our lives. I thoroughly enjoy working with other therapists and helping them to deepen their relationship with all of the parts of themselves that need love and care.

— Thaeda Franz, Licensed Professional Counselor

I enjoy seeing therapists as clients because they are motivated and insightful.

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

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
 

Good therapists go to therapy, and I wish we normalized this more. I love working with therapists who are newer to the field, as well as more seasoned folks. I am also experienced working with clinicians experiencing burnout, compassion fatigue, and vicarious trauma.

— Heather Beller, Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Chicago, IL

It is shocking the number of therapists who are not in therapy. The use of YOUR SELF is the greatest tool you possess as a therapist. I am here to help you to know & to reveal the parts that make you whole, the ones you like & don't like, & the ones yet to be discovered. Your work as a therapist will transform & deepen as a result. You're holding a sacred space for so many others, shouldn't you have the same for you?

— Melissa Bennett-Heinz, Psychotherapist in NYC, NY
 

My professional practice skills are well complimented by the extensive personal work I have done in therapy myself. I know what it is like being a therapist in therapy. It is vulnerable and intimidating no matter the reason for seeking therapy. I get it. What I have to offer is a wealth of diverse experience both professionally and personally that allows me to meet other therapists where they are at in their career and in their life in a trusted space that gives voice to truth.

— Heidi Bailey, Clinical Social Worker in Ocean Isle Beach, NC

It has been my privilege to have other therapists as clients, and I welcome other healing professionals in my office for a frank and empathetic counseling experience.

— Ellen Ross Hodge, Counselor in Seattle, WA
 

I have a passion and desire to assist others. Therapist experience burnout from being care givers to their clients, patients & to their own family members. Also, the expectations put on them or they put on themselves. They 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 that balance amongst their family, career, relationships and most importantly for themselves.

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

As an intern, it is so important to do your own personal growth and healing, especially when you are working for cheap and paying a supervisor. This is why I offer reduced-rate therapy to interns and associates. As a counselor-in-training, it is critical that you work with someone who isn’t a classmate, isn’t in training themselves, and is experienced enough to give you the support you need while you work on your own license. gatestherapy.com/lmft-associates-therapy/

— Kathryn Gates, Marriage & Family Therapist in Austin, TX

Therapists need their own therapists more than ever right now. You are showing up every day, witnessing for others, and giving your all; it is crucial to have your own space to share and process your own experiences. It is also an incredible process to ensure your own healing and development. I will always begin with a strength based approach and incorporate a variety of strategies to address stress management, compassion fatigue, trauma, anxiety, and other related experiences.

— Regina Whittington, Therapist in Clayton, MO
 

We will explore, laugh, create and provide a space of comfortability to share all aspects of life. Through exploration of blind spots, potholes without judgment to gain positive outcomes.

— Collene Taylor, Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Supervisor in Rockford, IL

I firmly believe that the best therapists do their own work. Doing our own work allows us to examine our countertransference, & embody the ideas we convey to our clients. If we embody & model these ideas, rather than just provide book knowledge, clients will have a much deeper experience. Shame about colleagues knowing we are struggling personally is a huge barrier to clinicians finding their own therapist. I'm passionate about deconstructing this stigma.

— Kirstin Carl, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Encino, CA
