Have Your Yes, and Have Your No

We speak with clients all the time about healthy boundaries. This is important in creating a healthy life balance. We as counselors and therapists are no different. We all have our own way of doing things and managing our work, but the greatest gift I have given myself in the last few years is the ability to say I am unable to make a commitment, to offer options that work for me, and to look at my time differently. I prioritize what is important, or take on tasks that provide reward and balance.  I am fortunate to be at a place where I can share time and resources and help others build their practice.  I have learned to allot my time according to priorities, such as family, learning, creating community, and providing a standard of work that I can be proud of.  

Beyond boundaries of time, are boundaries of treatment. I truly believe that any therapist, or counselor, cannot do everything well. We find an approach, a practice, a method that works well with our belief system and this begins to define our work. We may find a population that we work well with, and that helps us hone in on our best work. When I hear counselors say they work with everyone and use many different approaches, I wonder if they have found where their best work lies. This is not to say we shouldn’t be eclectic. I sure am. But I know my strengths and can honestly offer those in a way that I know I can help people. I also know my limitations or concerns outside my reach,  and can say “no” and feel like I have served myself in the process. Having a terrific referral list, with other counselors I know and trust, has helped make this feel even better.

As the Tao Te Ching says, A wise man has his yes and he has his no. You too, should have yours.

How to access our Zoom workshops

There are two ways to view our live Zoom workshops. If you are having trouble logging in, please refer to the instructions below.

Log in via link from email

When you registered for our Zoom Workshop, you should have received an email from Vivian Morgan with access information. I looks something like this:

  1. Make sure you have Zoom installed on your computer or mobile device.
  2. Simply click on the link that says “Click Here to Join“.

You most likely will not need to enter the passcode since Zoom’s unique link already has it embedded. There are some instances where you Zoom will ask you for the passcode. The passcode is in the same email right after the “Click Here to Join” link.

Please note that these emails are unique to your registration, so it is not possible to share the access information with anyone.
