What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?

TRUST and that there is a mutual and collaborative approach to the direction and goals of therapy. I also believe and recognize that the person in therapy is the expert on their own experience. My role, as the therapist, is to make interpretations, offer suggestions, and guide them to their best self.

What do you think is the biggest barrier today for people seeking care?

Ourselves! I believe some people perceive engaging in therapy means they are faulted or weak in some way. To the absolute contrary, I think true acceptance that you need support and the willingness to do something different proves an individual to be intelligent and strong! It is the first step for change to occur.

Were there lessons in your professional or academic career that left an impression on you, and how has that informed your work today?

To always say Yes! I believe 80% of life is just showing up. When we show up, good things tend to happen. The first day of my new job after graduate school, I was asked by my supervisor to run a 2 hour therapy group. Every part of me wanted to say NO! I was terrified! Despite my fear and intimidation, I agreed and facilitated the group. Years later, during the exit interview, my supervisor reminded me of what I did on that first day. She said my willingness to do something I was fearful of (apparently my face spelled apprehension) made a lasting impression on her and she made sure to convey this to my new director. Today, I continue to take healthy risks and have learned, met people, and gone places I could never have imagined were possible in my career. In my practice, I tell these stories to motivate and encourage people to face their fears and move past regret. As I like to remind myself and others, it's usually never as bad as we thought it would be!!
