I see a primary goal of psychotherapy as providing the individual with a sense of empowerment: the belief that you are able to control your own thoughts and actions and through that interact more effectively in social, personal, and occupational arenas. Therapy begins with establing a supportive therapeutic relationship, in which one feels accepted and validated. The specific methods I use vary depending on the nature of the problem and the needs of the client.
“At the end of the day, we can endure much more than we think we can” <Frida Kahlo> This quote has helped myself and others realize that we’re able to handle more than we believe we can. However, this doesn’t mean you have to do it alone or feel as if you are failure for reaching out for help. Therapy is creating a safe space where you can focus on your personal needs. It is a place where you can practice selfcare and be the positive change you aim to be. Therapy allows you to be open and honest with yourself. Finally, it is a place where you can be selfish and heard without any judgment or misunderstanding. Let's fight the stigma!
