My Approach to Helping

I've known for the majority of my life that I wanted to be a therapist. For me, there is no greater thing you can do but to help another person who is in need. However, I don't just want to help; I want to be able to provide assistance to people in crisis, dealing with trauma, depression/anxiety/substance abuse issues, so that they are free from the need for further help. My approach to helping people is to lead them on a journey of self-discovery where they find that just because they are experiencing issues and concerns that seem impossible to overcome, it doesn't mean that they can't find ways to overcome it.

"The only help worth giving is freeing from the need for further help"-Nisargadatta Maharaj

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

Many people are concerned about the therapy process and often feel that if others know they are receiving therapeutic services, they will be labeled, shamed, or that they might be viewed negatively. When I am asked about the types of clients I have seen in therapy, I almost always equate it to overall wellness. For example, if you have a medical condition does that mean you are weak or flawed? Or does it mean that you may just need some assistance to getting back to (or as close to) your previous level of everyday functioning?

I tell potential clients that therapy is not a sign of weakness or some sort of character flaw. Everyone needs someone to talk to at some point in their lives. Sometimes it's just to vent, other times it's to help learn new ways to manage stress, and in just a few instances it's to help overcome an unmanageable problem. More people than not have had to survive difficult situations, conflict, trauma, stress, or just living everyday life and sometimes just need someone to provide a new and fresh perspective. Wanting a new outlook on life and how to manage problems does not mean you are weak or flawed; it can simply mean that you want or need new ways to learn how to live your best life.
