Scripps Ranch and Bankers Hill Therapist Sara Cole.
Ask a Therapist . . .
Did you ever wonder what your therapist was writing or how they know what to say or when they get a chance to eat? Do you wonder why anybody would want to sit and listen to other people's problems all day? Or maybe you wonder if a therapist could actually help you. Well here is your chance to ask whatever you like and I will try to answer. I cannot give you therapy in the form of an answer or solve your deepest darkest problems. This is meant to be fun and informative. So with that in mind, let the curiosity take over and ask away.
In the past people have asked me if I have a favorite client. I could give the teacher answer and say "all of my clients are my favorite clients". But in reality it is much more complicated than that. The reason I chat with people on the phone is that I want to make sure it feels like we are able to connect and that we don't trigger one another for any reason. I do actually really enjoy working with all of my clients and I want to assure you that if for some reason I met a potential client and they reminded me of an ex or were dealing with a situation I didn't feel like I could address in a neutral way, I would refer them to someone who I think would be a better fit. I have a client that I think has a great sense of humor and I have a client who I think is so incredibly strong and I have another client who I really enjoy their ability to tell a story. So none of them is my "favorite client" but they all have different characteristics that I can truly appreciate.
People often also ask me about what I am writing during session. I have been in the client seat before and wondered the same thing. I can assure you that if you were to look at my notes, they would make very little sense to you. My purpose in writing notes is to write down just enough that if I look a them latter I will remember the session, if I gave you homework or anything else I would need to know at some later date if I came back to them.
