We live in a time where mental health struggle is a highly prevalent reality. I regularly talk with children, teens, and adults who are struggling with challenges including anxiety, ADHD, depression, and family concerns. Many times, we feel depressed and anxious because of negative thoughts about self, overwhelming circumstances, and challenging relational dynamics. These concerns are extremely common and are causing many people to have difficulty experiencing life with joy and satisfaction and functioning to their full potential.

There is a curious habit that I've noticed, especially when working with teens, that clients will mostly only work on the "issue of the week." This can have numerous benefits and can also delay the client's progress on any underlying concerns or patterns. Ideally, once a client has agreed to their treatment goals, they continue to take attainable steps towards that goal in therapy and in their daily life. When a client feels comfortable with their therapist to share their thoughts, emotions, and vulnerabilities, then deeper work can happen.
