What I really appreciate about your newsletter is that it has helped me understand that I am not alone in my feelings of being a new therapist. It has provided a way for me to self-validate my thoughts and feelings and turn them into positive growth. Thank you for sharing your experience and knowledge!
In grad school, so often I’ve been met with condescending “advice” from well-meaning therapists. It sometimes feels like “just wait til you get here—it sucks.” But Ben’s words make room for the way the system is broken, and also the way the work is beautiful. So often when I’m done reading, I feel like he’s saying “Just wait til you get here—it’s gonna be ok.”
I’ve appreciated Ben’s vulnerability and thought-provoking questions. It’s a weekly reminder to me to take time to reflect and I feel seen in Ben’s experiences.
