  • Seeing Red Over All The Red Tape

    Mar 31, 2011
    I consider myself an easy going guy. I understand the need for paperwork and was taught by many a mentor that in our field if it is not documented then it did not happen. I even teach documentation to graduate students and others from time to time but I am astonished at the mountains of red tape that seem to be considered normal to some people and programs.

  • “It’s my life and my choice if I want to die”

    Mar 24, 2011
    There are many times when a counselor has to step away from their personal beliefs and feelings in order to deal impartially with an issue, choice or decision that is contrary to everything that they believe in. Though I am typically able to do this with ease there are times when doing this is very difficult. Not long ago I found myself in just that type of situation when a client advised me that though they had a life changing medical condition that could be treated surgically; they were opting not to have the surgery due to concerns related to living with the long term results of treatment. The surgery was serious to be sure and far from what a typical surgeon would likely refer to as average or routine but it WOULD reportedly save my client’s life.

I won’t pretend that I am an expert in that area and will be clear that that is beyond my current knowledge base. But I do believe in Karma, the power of positive thought or just being a good person; whatever term you use is ok by me.

  • Learning A Friend Died While In A Session

    Mar 09, 2011
    We are in this profession for a reason: we care. Maybe we care too much at times, although I am not sure that is possible so long as you stay within ethical codes and set good boundaries. My point is that as clinicians we do what we can to help others and that means that we have a tendency to be selfless at times. But at what point does this stop? At what point do we put ourselves first?

  • Marketing On A Shoestring

    Mar 08, 2011
    One of the most common questions I get when I am lecturing on private practice related issues pertains to marketing. Many folks appear to think that they need a budget the size of Wal-Mart or Home Depot in order to “break into” the business of therapy in their area. The truth is that it is not the size of the marketing budget but the quality of the plan that makes the most impact on a new practice.
