My name is Katie de Lorimier and I am currently studying Counseling Psychology. I will be sharing these responses with classmates in my Advanced Practicum Class for my Counseling Psychology Masters Degree program. The purpose of this survey is to gather honest responses from therapists and clients regarding the beginning of their "therapy experience." I began seeing clients this past Fall as a Marriage and Family Therapist Trainee, and I've worked through (and continue to work through) fears, doubts, and over-analyzing my performance, while trying to provide my clients with the best possible therapy experience. Whether you are taking this survey as a client or therapist, I really appreciate your honest responses. This survey is also linked to the podcast The Mental Illness Happy Hour. Survey results are available at www.mentalpod.com. All information submitted is completely anonymous.
