What is important to you, for your client to feel, when working with you?
It is very important to me that the client enjoys working with the therapist and vice versa in order to have a more successful session each time. Creating a bond will help the client listen and follow instructions given to by the therapist.
Who do you believe you are for a client as they manage their problems?
To my clients, I believe I am here to help them achieve what they find impossible. They depend on me to help them in their struggles and I depend on them to brighten up my day!
What drives your passion for seeing clients?
Working with my clients brings a joy to my life! My ultimate goal is to help my clients become the best version of themselves.
How do you believe clients "get better"?
I believe clients get better with consistency. This is very important amongst not just the therapist but with their family members as well in order to achieve desired outcomes the best way possible.
