HEAL THE HEALER
Therapists and other clinicians can find themselves in need of their own support at times. About 10 percent of Ephrat’s practice consists of therapists who come to her for individual, family, and couples therapy, as well as consultation regarding their own therapy clients and also business consultation for those who are building private practices. Ephrat is sensitive to some of the unique aspects of therapists seeking their own services. It is one of her great joys to mentor and support other clinicians in their personal and professional journeys.
