My own experience as a client. The meaningful conversations I had with my own counsellor changed my life. You could say that I felt inspired to pay it forward.
My clients! Every single day. Watching someone have the strength and courage to make changes in their life (however big or small) is always inspiring to witness.
I think my biggest strength is using my creativity to help others. I love trying new things, and figuring out how to approach issues from different angles.
Everyone is so unique. There truly is no ‘normal’. I think that the more clients I work with, and the more people I meet in my personal life the more I am able to expand my perspective and challenge my own beliefs. I love walking away from a conversation with a different opinoin than the one with which I arrived.
Completing my education. It took no small amount of tears and sleepless nights, but thanks to my amazing family and partner, I’m on the other side of it now.
Reading thrillers, paddle boarding, eating sushi, trying new restaurants, camping.
The Shining, it doesn’t get spookier than that!
I would tell them that they are in the driver’s seat when it comes to our sessions. I always want my clients to feel empowered and in control in choosing both topics we discuss, and goals we are working toward.
