The Modern Therapist Blog

Our blog is here!

  • 3 Things I Wish I Knew Starting Out (blog) - Curt and I frequently get asked, “What would you have done differently to avoid burnout in public mental health?” That question used to stop me in my tracks. I have had ideas and philosophical ponderings about what others can do to avoid the burnout they experience. But what led me to burning out within my […]
  • We’re failing as lifelong learners (blog) - When it comes to therapist education, we have a bad case of “that’s how we’ve always done it.” Our education system is slow to change, including how to address client-informed care, working within interdisciplinary teams, and subject areas such as substance use and sexuality. This creates workforce problems where employers find that new graduates are […]
  • How to Navigate through your Growing Pains as a Therapist (blog) - Becoming a successful therapist would be so much easier if you were told exactly what to do to make it all work out. So often we get thrown off course by the growing pains or obstacles that are actually fairly predictable.   Here are some of the common growing pains we see at each stage […]
  • Is it time to burn it all down? (blog) - Your degree and your license are likely keeping your clients from feeling better more quickly. The educational system is making you jump through hoops that shouldn’t necessarily be there, teaching you things that don’t necessarily benefit clients, and holding you accountable to things that aren’t necessarily inclusive of today’s clients. There is a chasm between […]
  • Please Stop Running! (blog) - We need to stop running! Not all of you amazing marathon runners – you all keep up the good work. We’re talking about the busy-ness and chaos that ensues when there’s too much to do and no time to breathe. It feels like so many people we’ve talked to are running around like chickens with […]
  • Let’s Break Some Rules (blog) - A lot of our focus over at Therapy Reimagined seems to hit on growing therapists and early career professionals. However, this isn’t the entirety of our profession. Not by a long shot. There are those who advance and mature; those who become established and senior in our world. Ultimately, those who set the path for […]
  • Making Daily Business Decisions (blog) - When there is a lot to do, it can be really hard to figure out what to focus your attention on, and what to spend time, money, and energy on… you name it. Here are some quick questions to help you sort through your to-do list. Ask yourself the following, in this order: Where is […]
  • Use It or Lose It (blog) - We’ve all heard about “use it or lose it”—the idea that if we don’t use skills or habits that the skills will diminish over time. Does this hold true for therapy skills? While it doesn’t take much thinking to realize that we aren’t as good at things that we learned long ago, how soon do […]
  • The 7 Best Excuses to Avoid Starting Your Private Practice (blog) - So, you want to start a private practice. Or at least you think you do. You’re dreaming about your gorgeous office while watching and reading a million free resources about how to get your first client. You have debated niche, insurance, and location and you’re going to get started. Really. Well, maybe next month. Or […]
  • Validation (blog) - We’ve been asked quite a few times lately about what our mission is with our podcast and conference. When we first started out, our mission was to validate the experiences of the modern therapist and it continues to be to this day. To say, “Yes, grad school doesn’t prepare you for productivity standards”, and “Documenting […]
