It’s a Wrap! with Peter Merrell

I'm most proud of the relationships I've built with my clients. I really enjoyed my time working with them, all of them, and it was just a great time of growth for me and a great time where I felt like I just formed connections with people in my community that I, for me personally, helped me a ton. This was a new place I lived and so having this as a job and with clients that live in this community, I felt like, you know, I immediately was a part of the community, which was really important to me. I think the biggest thing is just my ability to have fun with my clients in session. I think just creating a space that they just feel really comfortable to be themselves and talk about whatever they want to talk about was, has been one of my biggest strengths as a clinician and I think it worked out great for a lot of my clients and I really hope that they felt comfortable and felt like they could be themselves and kind of form their own self -identity. So I'm really proud about that. I think just how I approach therapy and as a therapist it really create a warm and inviting space for a lot of my clients. I will miss a lot about working here. I think my peers, my co -workers, Kent, my supervisor, and Brian. The whole team has been exceptional, and so fun, and so inviting, so welcoming. Makes you a little fearful about where I'm going next and the people I'm going to be with. I'm sure they'll be great, but it's always hard to kind of, you know, lose that kind of community and people that you've grown with and developed a lot of strong relationships with.
