How do you try to make a difference in the lives of your patients?
I try to make a difference in my clients' lives by treating each client individually, tailoring treatment plans and therapeutic techniques to his or her own needs. Each client is different, and I treat each client specially. I try to go above and beyond to provide my clients with what they need at any given moment, as well as try my best to create a safe space for my clients to discuss, process and heal from their respective struggles. I meet my clients where they are at emotionally and mentally, and do what I ethically and therapeutically can to help them meet their goals. I remain empathetic and compassionate with my clients, and give each of them the attention and devotion that they deserve. Furthermore, I seek guidance and supervision from other professionals in order to continue growing as a mental health professional, as well as engage in continuing education and keep up-to-date with research and ethical guidelines in my field.
