Leap of Faith to Trust

Every time a client walks into my office and decides to put their trust into our therapeutic alliance and the treatment that comes out of that, I am aware that they are taking a leap of faith. I honor this deeply and continue to be impressed with how many actually take this leap. When the rare individual I meet can’t/doesn’t do this– which I think speaks to their general distrust that has developed for them in life– I’m ultimately not surprised. It takes courage and some confidence to reach out to a stranger and ask for help with one’s darkest, most personal concerns. And when I’m not the right stranger for someone, I trust/have faith that another one will be.
