I am obtaining my Masters in Marriage and Family Therapy to become a therapist and am looking to build my personal digital brand. MFTs view problems as systemic (the "problem child" is often subconsciously helping parents who are disengaged or talk only when arguing, communicate even if only to discuss the kid’s problems). There is also a ripple effect - if you care for yourself, you may care for those around you (family, school/work, community), for those in the same state, country, and globally.
I am also being trained in Internal Family Systems, a therapeutic model that speaks in "parts language" (selfleadership.org) and this will be my main modality. I also have experience in play therapy, working with adolescents, couples and families. I believe all people (with the exception of sociopaths) can find inner peace and healing within and that "good enough" and healthy relationships are possible (i.e. perfection and Hollywood happiness are not needed nor desirable).
Image I want people to relate to my name - professional, hope, peace, strength, caring, respectfully curious.
Personal meaningful symbols/images: Nature (trees, paths amidst trees, sun, horizons (with path, stones), water, Celtic symbol - the claddagh, modern art, black/white photography and b/w photos with focused color. Favorite photographer/artist: Scott Matyjaszek (http://www.artephax.com/) – specifically Photo Sculpture Series of Italian doors/alleys/stone bridges, and the Wisdom Tree Series.
I own the domain rights (w/o content) to andreanus.com and will eventually be writing about therapeutic experiences and procedures, possibly in a journalistic manner, for the intended audience to be for clients/potential clients.
