Therapists and personal trauma: Some lessons in self-care


It has now been a couple of months since I recorded this video. I've been sitting on it, in part, because I was unsure about my level of comfort sharing my experience with others. However, the more I reflected on it, the more I connected with our collective experience of humanness. If I am feeling this way, others must have similar experiences. It is my hope that my story helps to support your personal journey.

I purposely did not share the specific events of the incident to prevent my re-triggering and to prevent activating the trauma of those who might be listening.
