Care for the Care-Giver

Part of my practice specializes in providing confidential psychological services to health care workers and other professionals. Care for the care-giver is often overlooked until serious emotional and health concerns arise.

In my work with professionals, I find that extra attention and sensitivity to issues of shame, trust and privacy is essential, otherwise the therapeutic work is stymied.

Some of the issues that arise with health care workers, psychotherapists and other professionals are:

  • Burnout
  • Secondary and vicarious traumatization
  • Clinical consultation / supervision
