Shame and Countertransference
Many counseling programs discuss clinicians experiencing countertransference as something 'bad' or to feel shame about so, many therapists struggle when they feel countertransference coming up in session. Countertransference happening is a normal part of therapeutic work, but it is very important how a clinician addresses it with themselves and with their clients so it can be an opportunity for growth. My goal is to educate you about the different types of countertransference and how they show up, normalize the shame that can come up around it, as well as give choices about how to handle it when you feel it.
Becky has been a therapist for about 15 years, recently started her own group practice focused on trauma, Resilience Counseling and Wellness. She is trained in the Neuroaffective Relational Model (NARM), Somatic Experiencing (SE), and Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). Becky earned her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Master of Arts in Professional Counseling, a CACREP program, from Texas State University -San Marcos. She began her career as an Academic Advisor at Texas State, then as a Career Counselor at the University of Houston before transitioning to full-time private practice. Becky has over 15 years of experience working with trauma, grief and loss, anxiety, and chronic illness.
