What do you think is the biggest barrier today for people seeking care?
I believe the stigma attached to mental health is the biggest barrier. There is a strong belief passed down through generations in my community that one should not tell anyone their personal or family business. I am proud to say that I can see those cycles being broken as people realize that needing help does not make them weak or any less of a man, woman, or Christian.
What does a first session with you look like?
During the first session, we will review practice policies to ensure the client has a firm grasp on what is expected of them as the client and what they can expect from me as the therapist. We will then complete the intake process so I can get a better picture of who the client is. Lastly, we will work collaboratively to make all of the identified goals manageable for the client.
How do you determine therapy goals with clients? What does that process look like?
I do allow clients to determine what their treatment goals will be and how they would like to accomplish their goals. I simply ask the client what they would like to get out of therapy. My purpose in that process is to make sure the client is creating goals that are attainable. I then make sure that the client's goals are stated therapeutically for the treatment plan.
