Dr. Karen Dyck & Dr. Melissa Tiessen are two mid-career(ish!) psychologists working in private practice. They started Intentional Therapist out of recognizing that self-care is so incredibly important for the work we do as mental health clinicians, yet we get little to no training in this area.
In this episode, Melissa Tiessen and Karen Dyck discuss female therapists' unique challenges in their personal and professional environments. Pursuing a balance between your individual needs and the well-being of your clientele is the most significant way to ensure your ability to provide the best level of care possible. Although we may prioritize helping others, we must create space for personal health to be more effective. Regardless of gender, all therapists should approach their practice intentionally and maintain an awareness of their individual needs.
