Some of the clients that I have encountered feel as if they are worthless because of the situation they are in. Because I can relate to them, often times I find myself encouraging the patients to look forward to the future by sharing my story and letting them know that I understand that it is not easy being in their situation, but that they can overcome it by staying positive and working toward their goal and emphasizing the importance of continuing education.
