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

Counseling is an individualized journey. The client drives the direction and I provide support and guidance. I assist the clients in setting short-term goals that help them achieve their long-term goals. I primarily use a motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioral therapy framework. It is important to examine our thoughts as they drive our behaviors.
