I BELIEVE THAT MY JOB IS TO PUT MYSELF OUT OF A JOB. I BELIEVE PEOPLE HAVE THE RESOURCES WITHIN THEMSELVES TO HEAL THEIR OWN WOUNDS. MT JOB IS TO ASK THE RIGHT QUESTIONS + PROVIDE SUPPORT FOR THE CHANGES. I DON'T TELL FOLKS WHAT TO DO. IT IS DISRESECTFUL + NON-THERAPEUTIC. MY CLIENTS TELL ME THEY FIND ME NONJUDGEMENTAL. THIS IS ESSENTIAL FOR A THERAPIST. EMDR + NLP ARE EXTREMELY HELPFUL FOR TRAUMS, PHOBIAS + ANXIETY. HELPING CLIENTS FEEL SAFE IS ESSENTIAL. I HAVE ALSO TAUGHT + SUPERVISED STUDENT THERAPISTS AT FAIRFIELD UNIVERSITY FOR 12 YEARS PART-TIME.
