Oh, Sara, thank you for taking us on this journey with you! I’m a writing coach who works very closely with the therapy community (I came across your post via the NYT piece as I do some research for a storytelling for healers & therapists course I am creating). Though I don’t have the same restrictions on my writing, I help hold space for many therapists trying to decide how much they can say about their own lives and their clinical experience.
Along with a colleague (a therapist herself), I co-facilitate a group for clinicians asking many of the questions you are (right now, it’s all based in Facebook). I would love to have you join us. https://connectfulness.com/the-practice-of-being-seen/
