I try to keep my sessions as relaxed as possible. I often tell my patients they are driving the bus and I am along for the ride, only to provide support, honesty, encouragement, and directions if they ask. Everyone needs a neutral person they can tell their deepest, darkest secrets to without judgement. I will never pretend I know what one is going through, but I will support my patients in whatever way is necessary. I truly value everyone as an individual. Everyone has their own story that I believe should be told.
My self-care is spending time with my family, (husband and 2 boys), we love being outside. I love being by water, lake, ocean, pool, it doesn’t matter I could sit outside by a body of water all day, every day. I try to engage in some form of physical activity daily, I always feel better if I have started my day with a workout. I try as much as I can when I am stressed to draw, paint, or create in some way.
