Donna, I believe you and am so glad you are continuing to offer your gifts to your clients. Years of experience are so important.

Where I am now is that I am going to resign, take a break, travel, rest, take care of some household things and enjoy my husband. Then, I will re evaluate.

I am a Psychotherapist going on age 70. I work two days a week in private practice. I love my job.

I have learned so much throughout the years that my patients find my help invaluable. I have a gift. You have a gift. Why not use it?

I have often heard that the best career is one that you look forward to everyday.

Since you love your field of work, have you considered semi-retirement? Reduce the number of days that you work and take on fewer clients. See if that might work for you.

This approach will give you a flexible schedule and you can work as much or as little as you desire.


Introducing Myself
by: Linda / FL


I am Linda from FL and have worked my entire career as a psychotherapist/Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I have been contemplating retirement for the last few years and here I am still thinking "what to do?"

I am asking for you the reader to share any thoughts, feelings, and experiences you might have had as someone in the helping profession about your retirement decision.

I have thoroughly enjoyed my work as it gives me ongoing lifelong learning as well as helping others. I have such ambivalence about letting go and shifting gears.

Please share.
