      Renee- Yes!! Isn’t that our goal with our clients? To help them become more whole, healed, and dive deep into their purpose on this planet? Thanks so much for reading and spreading the word!

    There are a lot of therapists who are incompetent. They give bad advice.They live in a rarified social atmosphere. I know a bad ones and good ones. They take advantage of people’s ignorance. If one does not know what is going on in therapy,they may be misled. My personal advice is to find a competent, ethical psychiatrist instead. Some therapists have never been in psychotherapy themselves. If they had been they would never made the cut.

      It is true. There are therapists that are not appropriate. There are also MDs, Psychiatrists, Psychologists, Social Workers, and other mental health professionals that are not well trained.

      We fully agree that all mental health professionals should attend psychotherapy. I am not aware of a mandate that requires psychiatrists to attend psychotherapy- but if there is one that is fantastic!

      Personally, I love finding great psychiatrists that are doing psychotherapy- Irvin Yalom, MD is one of our heros! However, there are not enough great psychiatrists around- nor are there enough great therapists.

      The best we can do in our role is empower great therapists to translate their greatness into a website and marketing that makes it clear to potential clients who the good (and not so good) ones are!
