What does success look like in therapy? How will a client know that they are making progress?
Success in therapy is when a client becomes motivated and open to exploring their issues and when he/she/they understand that the therapy is work and requires application of learning in real life. Success is when a client feels understood and is willing to work through pain. A client will know they are making progress when they can be honest with themselves,reflect, endure discomfort and develop a trusting rapport with the therapist.
Are there any recurring themes or issues you’ve noticed as you treat people in your area of specialization, and how has this insight guided your approach?
Ive found that many people fear change because they begin to understand that with change comes loss. Its courageous to acknowledge the need for change but even scarier to move from a place of knowing (comfort or discomfort)to move into an unknown space. With loss comes anxiety and often it helps to have a person beside you lighting the way. Someone who understands the pain, helps you carry it and move forward.
In what ways does your personality influence your approach to therapy?
Throughout my life i have always been defined as the "positive one" - a person who despite the odds can develop a plan and foresee a successful outcome. People are drawn to me due to my compassionate and non-judgemental stance. Those who know me understand that I can partner with them in carrying their burden/pain. Of course, in order to accomplish this, trust needs to be established and earned. I am willing accept feedback and feel it is important to ensure we are working together to reach ones goals.
