Therapists are no different in truly learning from experience. I try to take things from my life, both good and bad, and try to help clients sees ways that I have been successful in healing and growing from all aspects of life.
I try to maintain a positive outlook on life, and I want to carry that in to my therapy sessions. We learn a lot from the things that feel heavy and they can be turned around to be the very things we need to push us forward to make change.
I want to offer support in whatever way I can, and don't want you to ever feel pressured to do something that you are not comfortable with. At first, it's really just about getting to know each other and talking about any thing that you feel is effecting you and your daily routines and we just kind of go from there. There is no magic way to go about it, we do what is best for you! I don't ever want anyone to feel pressured from me to follow up, to complete any kind of homework or do anything they don't want to do. My job is to offer therapy and support at the level that you want it. It is YOUR therapy and support, you drive what kind of things we talk about and work on.
