Since I was a child people confided in me. People naturally want to tell their story. They trust me instantly and share their secrets and their sufferings. I realized that I had a gift of wisdom and understanding.
most of my career was working with young sexually abused children. Now I work with adjustment disorders. I see clients who suffer from marital issues, depression, anxiety, PTSD, different sexual orientations, grief therapy, faith based struggles and relationship issues.

The client must pay attention to whether the counselor is humble and willing to get feedback. The client must feel safe and confident that the counselor has their back. The client should feel comfortable to be transparent and honest.
