Team Member Spotlight-Heather
Hello and Happy Friday!
I hope you had a good week and that you were able to find love around you or within you. Today we are featuring Heather, she is a great therapist and she has a loving heart and beautiful soul.
What we love most about her: Heather is kind, encouraging, and has a positive attitude. She is a team player and we love having her as part of our team. I hope you enjoy getting to know her better:
Why do you love being a part of Calderas Counseling?
I love being a part of Calderas Counseling because I have the opportunity to work with clients with whom I'm able to do life-affirming and client-centered work and I also have the chance to collaborate with amazing clinicians! I love our team at Calderas Counseling.
What do you enjoy most about your work with clients?
I enjoy collaborating with clients on treatment goals, helping to orient them to the counseling process, and celebrating their wins! I love getting to see life change from a front-row seat!
What challenged you this week? Could you have handled it differently?
This week, I was challenged by a client who seems to be slow to engage with counseling. We have been working together for a few months, but they are a little reluctant to engage with the counseling process. I have to focus on moving at the client's pace, and not my own. I can always learn to handle things like this better, so yes, I could have handled it differently by going into the session with a different mindset.
What three things do you need to succeed for the week?
Time to do my notes; good, quality sleep; and Diet Coke
Who inspires you?
I am fortunate to be surrounded by women and men whom I admire, but the person I most admire is my sister, Jennifer. She is loving, kind, sees people, remembers their life events, about their children, and makes people feel safe and loved. She is amazing! She inspires me to be the very best version of myself that I can be, and I love her for it.
Heather’s goal is to help clients feel comfortable, especially if they haven’t been to therapy before. She is a wonderful therapist and we are so happy to have her as part of Calderas Counseling!
Have a wonderful weekend,
