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

My personal experiences have allowed me to interact with individuals of all walks of life, race, culture, social-economic, gender, and non-gender conforming backgrounds. This has provided me with a wealth of cultural humility that I incorporate in all aspects of my work.

Information gathering, rapport building, and developing the therapeutic alliance. It requires humility and patience to learn from your client before giving out advice.
