The Modern Therapist Blog

Our blog is here!

  • What Drives You? (blog) - When we think about creating a mission statement, we might think of buttoned up folks in a board room wordsmithing language that doesn’t really say anything. It’s too corporate. It’s a waste of time… But is it? When a business has a mission statement, or at least clarity of purpose, there is guidance on how […]
  • Making Decisions Now (blog) - Many of us are two months into quarantine and have settled into a new normal. There are people who are working from home, have shifted to 100% telehealth, and others who have navigated CDC and WHO guidelines to keep going to work or seeing clients in their office. We have transformed how we live to […]
  • Traumatizing Trauma Workers: Don’t Leave the choice to the worker (blog) - Circling in the news recently and being shared widely on social media is the story of Dr. Lorna Breen, a New York ER doctor who died by suicide after having served in the frontlines in treating cases of COVID-19. While Dr. Breen was not a therapist, any member of our healthcare community that dies by […]
  • Gaslighting the Mental Health Workforce (blog) - I’ve seen several people share this article  about the gaslighting that will occur after the COVID-19 pandemic in an urge to get to a sense of normalcy. One of the places that we will fully expect to see this is in the roles of mental health workers. There are already suggestions that mental health treatment […]
  • Now What? (blog) - Each one of us has had to scramble to shift and change as our world has gone into crisis. Many of us have made a full switch to virtual meetings and sessions. There are economic uncertainties and there is emotional fall-out that we are navigating at the same time as our clients and colleagues. It […]
  • Mental health workers after COVID-19 (blog) - We’ve long been advocates for therapists getting paid and at the forefront of pushing social advocacy for the therapist job. It doesn’t take a crystal ball right now to see that the COVID-19 coronavirus will have an economic impact on the near future of our profession. This may not be the news that we want […]
  • Are You Too Personal About Your Work? (blog) - Originally posted on Evolve to Thrive ( When you’re passionate about what you do, you can put a lot of yourself into your work. Even more, if you’ve embarked on this work because of a life changing experience, the work can feel more important than anything else in your life. I know how vital this […]
  • Psychotherapy’s ‘Yes Man’ Problem (blog) - Earlier this week, I shared our most recent podcast episode in several online groups. Almost immediately, the content was challenged by someone who had obviously not listened to the episode because our guests are still in graduate school. Most of the remainder of the comments were positive and supportive. Ironically, part of the episode described […]
  • Saying ‘Trust your gut’ is bad advice (blog) - Your first instinct is that this article is wrong.   Now reflect for a moment. Where did that feeling come from? What evidence do you have for that feeling? You’re only five sentences in, and you have made a decision about this article’s validity…and we haven’t even gotten to the point!   Oftentimes, in clinical […]
  • NO EXCUSES – You Have to Network!! (blog) - So many people HATE networking. Especially helping professionals, it seems. Many therapists think that networking is selling themselves or passing a million cards or brochures out and hoping they get a referral. That’s just wrong. This mindset can be very short-sighted and, potentially, dangerous. Networking is a critical best practice for your clinical work! 5 […]
