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.

When you come to therapy with me, it's your turn. Many therapists are drawn to my practice because I use AEDP to work experientially and relationally, focusing on strengths and your innate healing capacity. Our work will give you a deep experience of being seen, heard, accompanied, and known. We will work collaboratively to undo aloneness and access your big beautiful heart.

— Carolyn Moore, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in San Francisco, CA

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

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

I have provided therapy to many other therapists, as well as other healthcare professionals and honor your effort to take care of yourself be exploring therapy. A lot of folks feel like they are "supposed to be" the healer and helper, and it can be hard to look for support for yourself. I see it as a huge strength that you are considering therapy for yourself and believe it can help you make space to be the therapist (or other provider) that you want to be.

— Elizabeth (Beth) Youngman, Licensed Master of Social Work in Columbus, OH

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

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 online therapy,

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

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 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.

— Liz Silverman, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Brooklyn, NY

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

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

So often we seem to forget ourselves, to hold, honor, and reach out for help ourselves as therapists and healing practitioners. Whether experiencing burnout working in agencies that have unrealistic demands and impossible expectations, or feeling weighed down by the heaviness of the stories shared by your clients, or becoming disconnected from yourself because the message reinforced to helping professionals is that we should erase ourselves to do this work, you deserve a place to rest.

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

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
