Greetings and welcome to my first blog. I've never wrote anything for the masses to read. I don't even really know what a "blog" is or what to make of it. In fact, I'm quite apprehensive about committing to this and having to see it through, mostly in fear of being critiqued by my readers. I hear my fellow colleagues explain to their clients that we, therapists, don't "judge," however as humans with thoughts and opinions, it's often impossible not to. Do I think of my clients differently after they share their deepest darkest secrets? Nah, we all have skeletons in our closets, who am I to judge? Instead, I'll lend a listening ear and empathetic heart. Do you want my opinion or advice? Ask and maybe I'll tell you, or maybe I'll just guide you to the answers to your questions. In the meantime, please be kind as we venture on this new journey together where you continue to judge me, and I'll continue to write.
