Endlessly scrolling through therapist’s profiles can be frustrating and confusing, I get it! So, let me tell you what I am looking for in a client. I am looking for a client who would benefit from a safe space to discuss and process their emotions. A client who would like to improve their overall mental health by learning new positive coping skills and wouldn’t mind completing therapeutic homework outside of session. My client would benefit from processing past traumatic events and learn how those experiences impact their current life.
