Kea comes from the school of thought that everybody needs a therapist, and this includes therapists too. Whether they have experienced trauma, have a mental illness or not, therapy is beneficial to them as well. As therapists are sitting in sessions listening to their clients, it can take a toll on them if they do not take care of themselves. But, what happens when a therapist who experienced trauma and has a mental illness? How do they help your clients? During this episode, Kea interviews Shivonne Odom.
