In this solo episode, Paul Krauss MA LPC reflects on his ten years of providing psychotherapy in a variety of contexts and with diverse populations and socioeconomic demographics. This is part one of two episodes of reflections on Paul's life and career. In part one, Paul discusses more of his personal journey that led him from newly graduated to starting a successful private practice, as well learning many different techniques and lessons along the way. Paul discusses the struggles of trying to find his way in the field of psychology and the ups and downs and difficulties, but also the personal transformation that he went through along the way to his current situation. Paul hopes that this podcast will help new therapists that are getting into the field that are looking for direction as well as seasoned professionals who are looking for new ways to work and help others.
*Psychotherapy is interchangeable with the term Counseling.* But since there are many "types" of counseling that have nothing to do with psychology (credit counseling, etc.), Paul chose this term for a direct reference
In part two, Paul Krauss will discuss his experience and opinions with various modalities of psychotherapy and their implications (Part 2 will be released as Episode 21).
