What question have you always wanted to ask a psychotherapist?

I have clients all the time asking me questions pertaining to my career and personal al life. One of the main questions is, how do you handle or separate yourself from hearing everyone’s bad news? My answer is that I have a mental process where I imagine all of the client's pain and suffering falling into a void in the middle of my office. I share this perspective with them, and it helps them to know my office is a safe space to unload.

So I am asking you now, what are the things you have always wanted to ask psychotherapists?

Let’s have a conversation! Leave your questions in the comment section, and I will make sure to answer! 😃
