How do you determine therapy goals with clients? What does that process look like?

I listen to the client and inquire about what is causing distress in their life and what they want to accpmplish through therapy. Once the client has identified the area (s) they would like to address, I assist in prioritizing the area (s) into goals. Then I partner with the client to determine realistic objectives, steps, and timelines to reach idenitifed goals. The client and I work together to improve clients enjoyment of life through increasing their coping mechanisms to mediate their stressors.

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?

Yes. The pandemic, and pandemic related changes in clients routines and financial stability, has heightened stress, anxiety, and depression in many clients I'm working with. These symptoms are showing up as general personal distress, relationship issues, parenting concerns, work issues, reevaluating life choices, strains on finances, resurgence of memories of past trauma's, and an increase in acting out behaviors. This phenomena is quite understandable in context to the pressures the pandemic has brought about for society as a whole.

In what ways have your personal experiences influenced your work with your clients?

My personal expereinces have encreased my ability to empathize with my cients and have unconditional belief in their resilience. My experiences have enabled me to connect with the power of vulenerability, and; understand one's stuggle to embrace it. My experiences have taught me that my ability to embrace my vulnerable self helps me to connect with my fellow man. This fill me with hope, and with hope much can be accomplished. We are all the same at our core. We seek to be seen, heard, loved, and accepted for who and what we are. I understand that we are all overcoming something in the process of becoming our best selves. My passion is the assisst my client in that journey to their best self/life.
