People often ask me, “How do you deal with a profession that holds so much sadness” My answer? My clients are my heros! As a therapist, I love what I do and I have the opportunity to work with some of the most resilient people I know! They would have to be resilient to deal with some of the struggles they are facing. In 20 years of clinical work, I have seen just as many triumphs as tragedies. I see change more often than not, and I gain hope from watching people overcome boulders! In my view, therapy is nothing more than education. The old stigma of pathology associated with therapy is long gone. In my work, I see people undergo three main phases during the therapeutic process: 1-self awareness; 2-skill building; 3- implementation. I love watching this progression in people and feel lucky to be part of hopeful transformation leading to a meaningful life!
