"Wise and real. This book offers a glimpse inside the mind of a therapist who is always pushing himself to be better while keeping the well-being of his clients front and center. The author's authentic and humorous voice comes through in a series of reflections about therapy, what it means to be a therapist, and what it means to live an authentic life. This is a worthwhile read for any therapist or any client who has ever wondered what their therapist is thinking. The quotes that are sprinkled throughout are especially wonderful; many of them were unknown to me and were welcome additions to my knowledge base!"

-J.M. LMFT, Palo Alto, CA


Inspired Therapist shares wisdom and inspirational tidbits accumulated over thousands of sessions. This is a thoughtful examination of what it takes to be (and become) a healer, and Warshaw's unique blend of humor and insight make it fun as well as enlightening. Inspired Therapist lets long-time practitioners reconnect with their passion, and provides sustenance for weary travelers along the path to getting licensed. With its smooth conversational style, Inspired Therapist is an energizing experience for therapists of all ages and developmental stages.
