I saw my first client today. I feel like a real life therapist. Well, to be honest, I sat in on the session while my supervisor did the intake assessment. But they’re going to be my client! Mine! And I did talk a little bit, and ask some questions.
At one point, I almost choked up while the client was talking about her mother. I wasn’t sad, I don’t think, so much as moved. But also a little sad.
I’ve got to get a hell of a lot thicker skin if I’m gonna do this job.
