In this episode, Sarah shares a little bit about the importance of caring for ourselves as therapists. We touch on compassion fatigue, burnout, and what steps you can take to dig yourself out of the trenches (and how to notice you’re down there in the first place!) Sarah has an incredible warmth about her that makes talking and learning from her so easy. Her compassion for helpers is palpable and her advocacy for therapists in the frontlines is a much needed voice in our community. Take a listen to this very important episode!
