How It Feels

The parents of adolescent and young adult clients, when they are paying for their children's therapy, sometimes expect it to produce quicker results than it does. In such situations, I often feel like the captain of a ship which is carrying a precious cargo across a shallow strait strewn with hidden rocks and powerful currents, being criticized by the merchant who commissioned the voyage for not traveling faster.

Some parents, told about hidden rocks and currents, appreciate it. Others say, “I don’t see any rocks or feel any currents.”
