Transitioning is tough work. To make my life easier and to allow a smooth transition for my clients, my last day is now March 15th.
When I return to work in January, I plan to get started on terminating my relationship with my clients. I have been in a therapeutic relationship for up to 15 years with some individuals.
My current clients struggle with severe mental illness. I want to give them enough time to process their feelings. Many of my clients experienced severe emotional and physical abuse as children.
They may feel abandoned and need to talk about their feelings. I want to give them that space.
