Thanks very much, Beth. I appreciate your attentive listening, your feedback, and your caring.
When I finish a session with you, I feel like I just came out of a great yoga class. I’m more confident and I’m full of joy.
Beth, you are a wonderful combination of grounded and intuitive - both are qualities that are essential in therapy. It is clear you have a deep understanding of social work theory which you use through your intuition and heart. The therapy you provide is not an intellectual exercise but human to human communication that is well informed through sound psychological theory and practice and then reinforced with therapeutic use of your intuition. You're excellent at creating a safe space to explore all the possibilities of one's issues especially when they meet at the intersection of personal identity and cultural expectation. I would also like to add that you use intuition effectively by sharing it with proper timing and development. When you share the intuition, it is apparent that you have sensed the idea for much longer than the few moments it takes to express it. As I got to you know, I realize you approach life as a spiritual being having a human experience. This perspective makes one's struggles less personal and opens them up to being learning experiences.
When I think of your work, I think of a safe and sacred space to be vulnerable, to be with my emotions, and fully supported in that vulnerability. When I think of you, I think of compassionate care, empathic presence, and a secure base to release and let go. It's more than just talk therapy, its what you offer in that space, your warmth, your ability to relate, your willingness to create sanctuary that sets you apart from other therapists.
Beth, you are:
Deeply present and intuitive, spiritually connected
Insightful and continually deepening
Grounded and kind
Wise and willing to share from depth of personal experience
A compassionate, trauma-informed, healing presence
You supported my self discovery and growth with a balance of safety and challenge
