The Modern Therapist Blog

Our blog is here!

  • 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 […]
  • Volunteering for shame (blog) - We clearly stand for paying people for work, as evidenced by our episode on A Living Wage for Prelicensees. Additionally, there’s an aspect of the pervasiveness of volunteer positions for prelicenesees in our profession that is potentially killing the ability to earn a living wage once licensed—and it’s not for the reasons that one might […]
  • You Don’t Have to be a Thought Leader (blog) - You have undoubtedly heard that you should start a private practice and that you should not take insurance or that you should have a side hustle or that you should definitely not work in community mental health. You may have even inferred these things from what we and our interviews with fellow #moderntherapists have said […]
  • OK Boomer is Coming to the Mental Health Workforce (blog) - “OK Boomer” is going to come to the mental health workforce We haven’t exactly shied away from looking at generational differences in the mental health labor force. While the debate continues on about what exactly is happening, what has seemingly been lost in the mix is why this is happening. Generational differences have existed for […]
  • What is my responsibility? (blog) - It’s been almost 2 weeks since Therapy Reimagined 2019. Curt and I connected with so many #moderntherapists in impromptu conversations, in-depth discussions during workshops, and in our live podcast where we talked about how we are defining the #therapymovement. In reflection, I realized that we are promoting the idea that each of us must take […]
  • Therapists hating therapists: Part 2 (or 3?) (blog) - Over the last couple of months, we’ve published some stuff that has generated quite the heated discussions in the comments sections of our blogs, on social media posts, and even extending into some emails, phone calls, and personal discussions that we have been fortunate enough to continue. Most notably, we are looking at the responses […]
  • You Should Not Become A Therapist – 5 Reasons Why (blog) - Many of us are good listeners and have it in our hearts to help other people. We like to figure out how individuals think and help them improve their quality of life. But should all of us be therapists? Probably not. Being a therapist is hard, so unless you are really up for the challenges […]
  • Older therapists hate younger therapists (blog) - Why are we so bad at applying therapy skills to…therapy? For a field that is built on teaching people critical thinking about their lives, helping them develop strategies about improving their lives, encouraging personal advocacy, and fighting injustices, we do a pretty poor job of treating the workforce in our field with the same principles. […]
  • Advanced Schedule Wrangling – A Key Factor in Avoiding Burnout! (blog) - We talked recently on the podcast about the different ways that entrepreneurs and employees burnout: All Kinds of Burned Out. We weren’t able to go deeper into some solutions, so I thought I would dig in on one of the most important things that creates a sustainable career: a manageable schedule. If you’re ready to […]
