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.

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

We as therapists has some of the most difficult jobs out there. We carry everyone's most vulnerable moments and have the privilege of hearing their stories... all while also needing to care for ourselves. I love treating other therapists because therapists are a special population in need of additional support, understanding, and treatment from someone who gets it.

— Angela Harris, Mental Health Counselor in Dallas, TX
 

As an occupational therapist I understand the physical, psychological and emotional stress related to the work we do. My holistic and multicultural training is an asset to supporting my colleagues in the search for balance and self care. I utilize movement, and sensory self regulation activities to establish healthy daily practices for caregivers and mental health professionals.

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/

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

Those of us on the front lines need someone to talk to too....and our own space to process the unique difficulties surrounding us in this time. The void we scream into is full, so I recommend that we each have our own helping professional to debrief with.

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

Are you a therapist who’s struggling with your mental health? Maybe your gift is that you’ve dealt with many of the same issues your clients have. This helps you be more empathetic and compassionate. But at the same time, the very things that make you a good therapist make it hard to be one. You are human just like everyone else and there is no shame in struggling. If you want to overcome feelings of inadequacy and renew your self-confidence, I encourage you to pursue therapy with me.

— Sara Dochterman, Clinical Social Worker

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
 

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 help therapists, medical professionals, healers of all types engage in their own therapeutic work, shame-free and judgement-free. As a therapist or professional in a helping profession, you also need help, but where can you go that will feel safe, kind, have the insight you're looking for, and be truly confidential?

— Whitney Russell, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in convenient and effective online therapy & career coaching in Austin, Dallas/Ft Worth, Houston, San Antonio, and everywhere across Texas, TX
 

Therapists need their own therapists more than ever. You are showing up and staying present while witnessing for others every day and it is crucial that you have your own sacred space. Whether it's to work through specific presenting issue or to process a myriad of experiences, you deserve the same quality service you provide to decompress, process, nurture your sense of self, and heal.

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.

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.
