My personal experiences has helped me in gaining a better perspective on how to support clients who are going through the most difficult challenges. It has also increased my ability to empathize with client and to be present with them in their journey towards healing.
Success in therapy can look as simple as the opportunity to connect with a therapist who understands your struggles and is able to listen and support you in your journey. Progress can be recognized by personal growth and increased ability to handle stressful moments.
I grew up in a small town in Jamaica, where my mother would offer support to anyone who was in need. She would feed those who were hungry, traveled to the doctor with the elderly when they were sick, ensured that children who came to our home were fed, and counseled both the young and the old. I became inspired by my mother helping others, and the helping profession chose me by way of a natural calling.
