As a therapist, you truly never stop learning. I don’t mean in a traditional, textbook type of sense (although you keep doing that too). You learn just by noticing. By allowing yourself to fully connect with your senses, your environment, and other people. It’s a total perspective shift that I’m not sure even the best graduate school could bottle up and sell. You just have to live it.
Choosing to go on this journey was by far the hardest and best thing I have ever done. Along the way I have had the privilege of training with some of therapy’s finest practitioners. I found my theory of choice halfway across the world (oh narrative, how I love you), and gained a tremendous amount of knowledge about myself in the process.
That being said, my intention for this blog is to share my story with the hopes that 1) if you’re a client, you can get to know me better, 2) if you’re a fellow therapist, we can connect in some way, and 3) if you’re considering going into this field, you can get an honest idea of what it’s like.
I may be a fish out of water when it comes to blogging (see picture…get it?), but I’ll give it my best shot.
