"Good Will Hunting". It was a fantastic model for therapy (other than introductory session in which Robin Williams' character lost his cool for a minute). It was not what many might see as orthodox therapy with lots of "how do you feel" statements, even though the therapist validated his client's feelings and thoughts. He knew his client was exceptionally intelligent, but so much emotional damage in his past having not been dealt with or processed, which could jeopardize his future. Unresolved trauma can be like a cancer, it must be addressed, but at client's pace.
It begins with basic introductions between therapist and client. It is about getting to know each other a little bit to establish rapport. It may include introduction into their presenting reason for coming to therapy.
I'm excited about the disintegrating stigma of mental health and mental illness, that people who seek counseling aren't "crazy" and that depression and anxiety, so prevalent now, makes up a large societal consensus. I'm not saying in any way that I'm glad people are experiencing depression anxiety. That would like a dentist being so happy that people get cavities. I'm saying I'm glad that people experiencing and struggling with depression and anxiety, as well as other mental health issues which surface, are coming forward and following through with the need to address what they're struggling with.

I have 20 years of experience working with children, teens, incarcerated males, and senior adults dealing with many mental health issues. Primarily, it has been depression and anxiety, something rather prevalent in this day and time. I do have experience in working with clients who had disorders related to psychosis and dementia. My experience and skill in dealing with depression and anxiety has been building for as long as I've been in the field of mental health and social services.
