My inaugural blog post was called Personal Disclosures. And in my post Tale of Two Rookie Moms, I wrote about my therapy work with a stay-home mom who was struggling emotionally. I told her how hard maternity leave was for me, and how I felt so much more myself, so much more balanced, so much more capable as a mother, by going back to work. My client seemed grateful that I’d been so self-revealing. It seemed to free her to consider all her options, and choose her own path.
That’s what personal disclosures by a therapist are supposed to do for clients. But I’ve always shied away from inserting my own experiences in the therapy session. Nowadays, that’s much harder to do.
