As a teenager, I lost my grandfather and had difficulty coping with my first time experiencing grief. I found therapy to be comforting and decided it was something I wanted to do. I enlisted in the Air Force after high school, but always had the idea of becoming a therapist in mind. The first college class I took while active duty was a psychology course and I continued pursuing my education. After seperating from the military, I was hired at a horse therapy program and enrolled in college full time.
I am loving video therapy! I used to love doing home sessions. I liked to visit with people and see them relaxed in their own environments. I think telehealth is a great format for people who are shy or reserved. Since it can be anxiety provoking for many people to come to the office. Increased access to video and teletherapy has been one silver lining of 2020. I love animals and am delighted by pet interuptions.!
I stay in contact with my supervisors and colleagues. When I am expereincing burnout, I reach out to my supervisors for support. If I am out of my comfort zone, I seek out other therapists for their expertise. I am also a part of several therapist community groups in order to stay up to date on tools and information.
