I have 4 years experience as a mental health counselor at a large group practice and now in a solo practice, 14 years experience as an independent college and career counselor, and 5 years as a middle and high school teacher. I'm also a published mental health writer with recent articles featured on OC87 Recovery Diaries, The Mighty, and MindBodyGreen websites. I also am the creator and instructor of a holistic writing workshop designed for all ages and levels, Releasing The Writer Within.
Professional Development trainings:
Aside from the requirements that LMHCs have for professional development, I am committed to my own personal growth and mental well-being and continue to read books and articles on self improvement and psychology. Currently, I recently completed a Mindfulness Course and am interested in pursuing more training in this area to benefit both myself and my clients.
