Seeking a Qualified Supervisor?
I graduated in 2002, and right after graduation, I went… OH CRAP…. I think I made a mistake. I picked the wrong field! I was starting to work one on one with my clients, and I felt like maybe I was an imposter, maybe I could not really help them. I was fortunate enough to have tapped into some really experienced women who helped me through my mini-crisis and assured me that I had not completely messed up.
But….getting started was hard. As a highly sensitive therapist, with a non-sensitive supervisor, there were questions I was afraid to ask…and quite frankly, I did not always trust my supervisor. My own anxiety kicked in, and I needed help! So, I had to seek out other therapists to help guide me, ones that were more sensitive, and who understood my high awareness of myself and my clients.
