For many in this therapy world of ours, we know exactly what this means. It means that the person that has walked into your home and been part of your lives is ready to move on.
The most rewarding part of my work is when a client proudly shares about an experience that demonstrates their hard work and that they have achieved their therapeutic goal. While this moment may not be traceable back to one particular change in behavior or moment of insight, I can be confident that the hard work they have put into therapy has helped them achieve their goal.
Trust and connect. I believe these words describe human relationships and what is essential in our therapeutic relationships.
We are such dynamic beings, we change day to day, moment to moment. It is awe inspiring to be able to spend time with someone and get to know who they truly are, find commonalities, and have a real heartfelt connection with another human being.
The most challenging part of this work I do is changing the mindset that RDI is like nothing else you have ever tried. The most rewarding part of this work is seeing a parent of an autistic child have an “ah ha” moment, then they finally get it.
I have chosen to continue my professional path with autistic people and their loved ones… I am exactly where I want to be.
