Jenny Brackman, the Therapist Coach
Helping Clinicians move from Surviving to Thriving, because Helping doesn't have to Hurt
State-Dependent Self-Care plan, part 1 (part 2 is no charge)
Hi! My name is Jenny Brackman.
I specialize in helping therapists move from surviving to thriving, because helping doesn’t have to hurt.
People enter the helping professions with a fervor and a fire to change lives, but the painful process of bearing witness to traumas day in and day out brings a mental, physical, relational and spiritual toll, often uncovering past wounds.
The demands of clinical work often leads to the belief: I don’t have time to deal with this.
Some of my clients have expressed these shame-laden fears:
I can help others, but why can’t I help myself?
no one can find out how much I’m struggling
I need help, but I'm tired of the medical model; I don't want a diagnosis
This could come back to my supervisor, or worse, my state’s licensing board
These fears take a great deal of energy to suppress and, as a result, their careers are floundering.
My clients are overjoyed to realize that coaching brings them a degree of anonymity they can’t experience through traditional therapy.
How did I start coaching therapists? Well, in the words of Bob Ross, it was a happy little accident. I found my own experience with secondary traumatic stress and compassion fatigue helped me to connect with them. I just had a knack for it, and soon I found I tapped into a need.
Why coach with Jenny Brackman?
As Dr. Eric Gentry's protégé , Jenny has spent hundreds of hours under his tutelage, assimilating the active ingredients of Forward-Facing Trauma Therapy, Forward-Facing Professional Resilience, and the Accelerated Recovery Program (ARP) for Compassion Fatigue, the world's first evidence-based treatment program for compassion fatigue.
Her clients appreciate her non-clinical perspective and have often told her that she's helped them faster than any therapy they've tried.
