Often, clients start therapy and are so disconnected what they are doing to actually survive and cope with overwhelming emotional and relational pain. This overwhelming feeling and increased experience of distress can dull a person’s ability to identify and believe in their own capabilities and strengths. Psychological distress can cover the most vibrant experiences in a gray or even black cloak of despair. Therapy is not about changing what makes a person unique. I believe therapy is about building on the individual and unique positive characteristics of every person. Successful therapy should identify untapped inner strengths that maybe have been quieted or ignored. Successful therapy is about turning pain and psychological distress into emotional strength and resilience. Endings with clients are sad because I no longer have the incredible privilege of witnessing their life journeys. Ending are also much sweeter when a client doesn’t credit me with the identified personal changes but instead gives the credit rightfully to themselves. At the end of our work, I hope the identified strengths, skill sets, coping mechanisms, positive qualities, and personal characteristics they have at the end of therapy they now see were present all along. Present before they even met me. The experienced change is due to their bravery to see themselves truly and live authentically. To live in a vibrant world, not dulled gray or black but that includes shades of both they have control over.
