As a Licensed Clinical Professional Counsellor hear Alexia Muniz Catan talk about her journey recognizing a gap in her community and creating a program for her not-for-profit in order to meet the need. Alexia attended, onsite at the family’s residence for family support. She provided care for families with intellectual disabilities as well as autistic individuals in her local counties. This then had her moving towards online private practice. Alexia and Julie both work with kids as young as 5 years old, they discuss online practice and their thoughts around what age is appropriate to work with youth online and what online practice would look like with a younger population as online therapy practice emerges.
Alexia practices mostly using Solution-Focused therapy; she looks at the basis of what is comfortable for the client when processing what is going on to help them transition to change. Asking clients about what they did or didn’t like in past therapy experiences and how there is value in knowing, as your therapist, what you didn’t like. A great discussion ensues around the importance of continuing to work with your therapist during times you might feel uncomfortable and assessing if this is a regular pattern in your life that therapy can help with.
