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

The relationship between therapist and client is crucial to success. A good therapeutic relationship involves trust, empathy, respect and congruence. It is important for the therapist to communicate empathy and understanding in a supportive setting.

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

One of the leading barriers to seeking health care is the stigma attached to mental care. Not only the social stigma, but also one's own beliefs about mental illness can prevent them from seeking support.

What does success look like in therapy? How will a client know that they are making progress?

The client begins identifying and reaching the goals set in therapy. For example, the client identifies and removes sources creating anxiety. The one most obvious but simple sign of progress is the client starts to feel better.
