I am grateful to have entered my 8th month since my private practice opened. I’ve welcomed 15 clients to date and so appreciate the referrals from the community. My private practice hours now fall on Thursday evenings and Saturdays with a couple Skype clients I have added to other week day evenings. It’s hard to believe just a year ago I was finishing up my last month at the University of Southern California’s masters of social work program. The year of transitions has been both exciting and challenging.
Spring is here and several of my clients are using this time to look at their goals for this next year, tweaking some, while adding others, and also realizing what they’ve accomplished. The challenge then becomes to draw out the steps to those goals that become a part of a larger plan; and most importantly, to track the progress.
This month’s newsletter I am going to focus on facing addictions, tips on how to address feeling overwhelmed, and an inspiring story I’ve found that I feel depicts hope.
