How I Help Clients Thrive
My belief is that positive change occurs when a person truly feels seen, heard, and valued; which, I strive to offer each client I connect with during therapy. As a therapist, I do my very best in creating a safe and secure environment through a strong therapeutic rapport with my clients. My hope is that clients will feel safe, as well as empowered to do the vulnerable work that is so necessary in achieving their goals. I work collaboratively with clients in exploring the changes they are wanting to create in their life. My hope for clients is that they will walk away from this experience feeling more confident in themselves and their ability to create personal changes, as well as achieve future goals.
What I Like Best About Being a Counselor
Something I believe we all have in common is the need to be known by others. In order to achieve this, we must take the scary step of allowing ourselves to be seen. This is such a vulnerable and yet beautiful act and one I find as such an honor to work towards with my clients.
One of the most challenging obstacles I’ve seen for clients when first entering counseling is lack of self-worth. I believe that without self-worth adds the challenge of being able to fully see one’s potential in their ability to achieve anything that comes their way. As a therapist, my favorite moments in session are when clients finally see, as well as acknowledge their worth and their ability to create a life worth living.
Some of my favorite moments in session include clients expressing excitement about an accomplishment they have made and one that they might not have believed they could have achieved in the past. This is so incredibly rewarding and such an honor to be a witness to. I love taking the time to celebrate these moments with my clients!
“Vulnerability is the birthplace of love, belonging, joy, courage, empathy, & creativity. It is the source of hope, empathy, accountability, and authenticity. If we want greater clarity in our purpose or deeper & more meaningful spiritual lives, vulnerability is the path.”
