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

In order to determine goals for clients I simply ask the client what they would like to work on in therapy and if those goals are obtainable.

In what ways do your life philosophy and treatment philosophy overlap?

To me it's compassion and empathy. To be clear I am human which mean I go through various challenges in life myself and when I go through my challenges I relate to my clients better.

What do you think is the biggest barrier today for people seeking care?

Unfortunately it's the stigma that therapy is only for severely mental ill people which in fact is false. I believe everyone could benefit from talking and seeking guidance from a professional at some point.

Work History

Having begun working with clients in a mental health agency in 2016 is where it all began.
