Once a Client​ONCE A CLIENT, ALWAYS A CLIENT


A former client, now in her early twenties asked to return to see her therapist after five years. They met and discussed issues within her family and pressure she continues feeling, to deny that the abuse took place (even though her father pled guilty and is in prison). After just one session with her therapist she was able to recall strategies and coping skills she was taught during her previous therapy sessions. Prior to the next scheduled session, the client called and reported she feels empowered and confident in her ability. She reported that she did not feel she needed to return at this time and thanked her therapist for being there for her.
