Therapy For Therapists
My search to find the right therapist and my experiences in my own personal therapy has helped me become more aware and responsive to the needs of therapists seeking their own therapy. I have found that working with the right therapist, (i.e., someone who is attuned, skilled, has done their own personal work and who can demonstrate their competency) has helped me immensely to work through unresolved issues and to identify and work towards my personal goals. It has also deepened my clinical work dramatically, in ways that I couldn't have simply done with consultation, or training workshops alone. I have a strong psychodynamic foundation, and I integrate elements of Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), Internal Family Systems (IFS) and EMDR into my work.
If you are a therapist seeking your own therapist, I invite you to schedule an initial consultation (at no charge) to determine if you'd like to work with me. It takes immense courage for us to make ourselves vulnerable in a way that we ask of our clients, and to turn our attention inward, towards our own defensive walls and unmet needs. I commend this first step you are taking to contact me, and look forward to meeting you.
