Shaun Kell, LMFT

Like many therapists, I got into this work seeking my own wholeness. But the further I got, the more I saw that none of us will be whole until we all are. A decade in (and as grandiose as this sounds), I see the work as both my livelihood and my gift to the world. 

Supervision should help you develop confidence and competence, yes, but should also help you to come into yourself as a therapist. After all, what we offer clients is our time and attention. So "we must tune the instrument” (Irvin Yalom).

Advice to new therapists: This work is not for wimps. Be brave! And also, can we all agree to just stop it with the "therapist voice?"

WORDS I LIVE BY:
"Let me
keep my mind on what matters,
which is my work,
which is mostly standing still and learning to be
astonished."
- Mary Oliver
