I've never met a therapist I didn't think had emotional or ego issues.

Secondary trauma is tough. Its basically PTSD for everyone's major issues in life all day, every day

I'm not surprised... I have heard it said that most people who go into those professions do so in an effort to heal themselves.

I know when I was considering that line of work that healing myself was definitely a motivating factor.

I've met a lot of folks that work in the field and most, if not all, have various emotional problems themselves. So, this is not surprising. Great people but it's hard business.
