This great note and gift is from a client whom I saw beginning at age 4. We have been through many phases of his life together and he has fought the good fight and shows his appreciation for it. I often say that as therapists, we are the client’s “GPS” system. We can map out the route for their personal growth and development success, but they are the ones that choose to take the path. To this very special client, I bow to his courage and resilience on his journey.
