My Guiding Ethical Principles
are to meet people's needs. Whatever issue (whether we find it together or it is known from the start) that is impacting daily life for someone, it is my duty to support them (whoever it may be) and help guide them or their family through the process of intervention to reach a common goal.
This guiding principle is doing what is ethically right for the parties involved to meet each of their needs in terms of structure of sessions and cost. If individual goals exist, then we work toward what would be the best "fit" and if need be, meet separately. I consider myself to provide trained professional care but cost is something that I look at as an ethical piece if it is a factor when it comes to supporting others.
A specialty of mine is pre-adolescents and adolescents and parenting. After numerous years in schools, I have a toolkit of knowledge that i work from. However, every case is different. Another guiding principle is that EVERY CHILD IS DIFFERENT. Not every adolescent that has behavior issues are the same. There are different reasons for each and ways to help.
Ethically, I do not believe in the word NEVER! I believe in encouragement, positive mindset, pride, and even if many of those must be learned, they are imperative to ethically improving the lives of others.
How My Own Struggles Made Me a Better Therapist
they forced me to process many events, utilize many of our government resources and sit on the "other side" of the table. Some of these experiences were eye-opening and I never really understood how much they could influence my practice. You never know how someone TRULY feels; but if you ask, they are always willing to share for support.
I notice that I am a better practitioner because of my experiences and connect more authentically in relationships when working to help people. We are all human, it is what helps us work together to reach goals.
