One of the most compelling aspects of therapy is the moment when a client realizes change has occurred. I have witnessed many of these powerful moments. Often I do not know when it happened but the client looks different, speaks differently, and are able to reglect on their life from a place of health. Those moments are what compels me to continue this work.
I have had clients ask, “how will I know I have reached my goals, that real change has occurred?” My response is always that I do not know but we will arrive there together, they will have my support and encouragement through out. In the end I believe that is why they came to my door, they became tired of doing the hard work of change and healing alone. So we share the journey and the moment of joy when change occurs together, as a team.
