Your chosen theoretical orientation and why: Narrative because I truly believe in the power of storytelling in shaping how we see ourselves and our experiences.

One piece of advice for new clinicians: Learn one theoretical model really well when you begin practicing, but always remember that taking time to be with your client, being curious and non-judgmental about their experience is vitally important to building a therapeutic relationship.
