Dear “Concerned” Therapists…

Caption For Image

I suppose I need one place where I can speak from a place of “professionalism”.

That doesn’t mean I am going to hold back on what I have to say, but somewhere out there is a White Therapist who is the equivalent of “The Joker Who Believes He’s Batman” and if I don’t have one facing public persona that follows the rules of behavior more becoming of a therapist, he will use his money to make my life very difficult.

The Situational Therapist is a character that I play.

Well, so is Derrick Hoard LMFT, but the point is that I will use this platform to provide more nuanced takes.

But just so we’re clear.

My views don’t represent the views of any professional associations that I may be a part of and are my own.

I want to have a place to speak to upcoming therapists, current therapists, and other professionals who interact with individuals we have labeled as mentally ill.

At least until my licensing board gets tired of my ****.

So, thank you for following and I look forward to providing the background explanation for the work I am doing in the public.

I look forward to building this relationship.

Sincerely,

Derrick J. Hoard
