Treatment Approach Summary:
A good session... a real session... requires that my client leaves with something new. It could be a plan, more hope, new motivation, psychoeducation, curiosity for new knowledge... but it has to be something. I enjoy finding it with the people I serve. Sometimes sessions are supercharged with planning and brainstorming! Sometimes it is time to find stillness and allow the thoughts and feelings to deepen and be heard. After 15 years in social work, I have found you cannot predict your client's actions... and neither can they. Instead, you need to walk with them into new places.
