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

I believe that a significant barrier that might prevent people from seeking the care the stigmatization of mental health illnesses and care. I advocate to others that there is no shame in seeking the care that you might need. Seeking mental health care is a very personal choice the individual makes for their overall wellness and wellbeing.

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

Well, I generally try to look at the problem, issue or concern from various points of view, come up with potential solutions and try to solve the problem, issue or concern by using each solution and determine if that is the best possible solution to the problem, issue or concern. Throughout my personal experiences, I have used this method most of the time. At, times it may not work ideally but i tend to strive to keep looking at experiences from different perspectives as best as I can. I, tend to be self-motivated for the most part and encourage others to do the same. At times, everyone needs to re-examine their personal experiences in order to gain additional insight on how to manage that particular problem, issue or concern using their best knowledge, skills and abilities.

What do you view as a key component of the therapeutic relationship?

For me the most important key component of the therapeutic relationship is building rapport with the client. I wholeheartedly believe that once this has been established the therapist and client can then move forward and address the issues, concerns or problems that brought the client to therapy.
