Inspiration for the Weary Therapist: A Practical Clinical Companion 

by David Klow

Inspiration for the Weary Therapist is a companion for the modern practitioner. Addressing a diverse audience and written by a master clinician and supervisor, Inspiration for the Weary Therapist helps modern therapists traverse the complicated landscape of practicing therapy in the age of COVID.

Instead of a heavy, theoretical approach that can leave the already exhausted therapist feeling more overwhelmed, this book from Routledge Press guides readers through challenging professional situations, soothes them during upsetting clinical moments, and encourages them to keep going during changing times. Rather than teaching mental health professionals how to practice, this book helps them believe in themselves again and reconnect with their confidence as clinicians through increased self-compassion and personal growth.

This practical and helpful guide is essential reading for all mental health practitioners who are searching for inspiration and motivation and who want to reconnect to what it means to be a therapist.


You Are Not Crazy: Letters From Your Therapist 

by David Klow

People today live in psychological bubbles. They think that they are the only ones who experience what they do. They think that they are crazy, yet do not realize that everyone around them is having quite similar experiences.

This book, from Wyatt-MacKenzie Publishing, ends this psychological isolation. It helps people realize that they are not the only ones who have strange thoughts or behave inconsistently.

Psychotherapist David Klow brings deep insight, wisdom, and warmth to this process as he helps readers find new understanding about themselves. Through a series of heartfelt letters to his patients, he relates timeless and impactful information that normalizes life’s struggles.
