I discovered my passion for psychotherapy in young adulthood. Family background and educational opportunities such as local and professional presentations have inspired me to to recognize that if their is persistence their is opportunity for growth.
I am a very organized easy going person which thus helps me to build rapport. Additionally, I might be soft spoken and assertive. in sessions My actions in therapy are strongly routed in resilience and a great deal of patience when I guide clients along their therapeutic journey.
The most profound and interesting thing I have learned in therapy involves collaboration with other staff members to work together. Specifically, I am referring to a client who had a diagnosis of Schizophrenia and had been responding to voices. The client would barely look at me in session. I knew immediately that a psychiatrist would help with her medication care needs. After correspondence with the psychiatrist on treatment compliance. After some time this client articulated she had being to share her thoughts and look directly at me, it brought me much joy to see the significant progress that this client had made. It took months of intensive therapy and frequent psychiatrist appointments to help this client become the best version of themselves. Ultimately, I learned the importance of being very observant and patient with my client. Most of all I learned over the years of working that clients and staff have a way of teaching clinicians like myself something new every day.
