The therapy industry is one that is notoriously tough to break into, much less find success. Working with people to delve into their darkest problems in order to overcome them is a task that few are suited to actually attempt. Roseann Bennett is a family therapist with over ten years in the industry. In 2009 she established the Center for Assessment and Treatment. Since the center opened its doors, Bennett and her team has managed to help hundreds of people to work through their problems. Giving back is a huge reward for Bennett but it doesn’t mean that the job is easy. Bennett was gracious enough to share some tips that she adheres to in order to find success in her field.
For Roseann Bennett, the key to success has always been about motivating herself to work hard and work often. Bennett is an early riser and she is quick to get on her grind, focusing on connecting with clients and employees at the beginning of her day. From her alarm clock to when she shuts down for the night, Bennett is always working hard to make her business prosper. Bennett knows that this kind of work ethic can be hard to tap into for some people, but that doesn’t make it wrong.
Through her day at the Center, Bennett is pegged in an operational role as a leader. She is charged with keeping her employees on point and her clients happy, working toward making the breakthroughs that are so integral to the entire field. Bennett calls these breakthroughs the most important aspect of her job and the point at which she feels most connected to her job.
While work is a huge part of her life, Bennett knows that it is important to maintain a healthy balance when outside of the office. or her, a proper work-life balance requires spending time with family and having conversations with her husband. Bennett likes to read at night and wind down with a massage on the weekends. Self-care is integral, she believes, to maintaining a proper balance in life — and that is something many people should learn.
