Interview with Natasha Collins, Marriage and Family Therapist in San Francisco, CA

9.)  KP: What do you consider your strengths as a therapist?

Natasha: Similar to what you just said, I think that a huge strength is that I really believe in the therapeutic process and that people have the capacity to change and develop the skills that they need to reach their goals. I think that my belief in the importance of empowering individuals can help instill hope and confidence in the people with whom I’m working.

I also think that I do a pretty good job of creating a nonjudgmental space and environment for someone who is going through the process of trying to make changes in their life.  I think that’s really important.  I am able to build rapport with other people pretty easily, which is also a valuable strength to have as a therapist as. It’s important to feel connected to the person you’re going to seek consultation or support from.  Lastly, I am goal oriented in my approach, and I see that as a strength, too, because I think that when people are investing time in something, it’s natural to want to see results and feel like the person you’re working with is also invested in seeing results.
