When determining therapy goals with clients I include the client. First, I learn about you and what brought you to participate in therapy. Then we talk about what you would like to accomplish from a goals perspective. I will assist you in setting goals that are appropriate. I also set goals that are attainable and not unrealistic. The purpose is not to set you up for failure, it is to help you achieve success.
Finances and insurance plays a big role in seeking therapy. Particularly, in this time of COVID, which has changed our world as we knew it. Unfortunately though, COVID has added increased stressors for people. I also believe there has been a stigma for years from society on therapy and I find this difficult for people to reach out. If we lived more by our own thoughts, feelings and emotions instead of what society dictates to us I feel we would all live happier and healthier lives.
Therapy can be extremely beneficial if you choose it to be. There is no problem too small for therapy. If you feel it is necessary for you, then it is. Go into it with an open mind and you probably will find the therapists are friendly, welcoming and nonjudgemental. I am here to support you and to provide you with tools to better yourself and your future. I believe each person is an individual with personal experiences which are yours that you carry and effect you in a very personal way. There is no right or wrong way. I accept you for who you are and believe in positive reinforcement and praise.
