Why are you working in therapy/mental health?
Experiences from my time in the military led me to pursue a career in counseling.
One of my assignments while in the Air Force was working at a military
jail, rehabilitating individuals who had been convicted of a crime. During
my time at the jail, I discovered that most of the individuals incarcerated
there came from broken families. Out of this experience and other instances
where I watched families struggle to cope, I became passionate about doing
what I could to help.
Why is being a Therapist/Counselor important to you?
Aristotle said, “The more you know, the more you know you don’t
know”. I believe that each of us can grow personally, but that conflict
presents us the greatest opportunity to grow. It is during these times,
change only seems natural and we as individuals are more apt to follow
thru on the changes we make. For me, being a counselor means being a mirror
during these key times and to show people what they might not see had
they not experienced conflict.
Why did you choose to work for CCH?
Prior to being employed at CCH, I completed an 8-month internship in Behavioral
Health Services at CCH. Having enjoyed my time as an intern, I applied
for the next open position.
What has made you feel the most pride in your work at CCH?
I believe employees not only strive to give the best possible care, they
treat clients the way they want to be treated.
Who is your mental health hero and why?
One of my first supervisors, Tom Folse, taught me that first and foremost
counseling is about the relationship with the client.
If you had one piece of advice for a therapy-seeker, what would it be?
Ask questions, make suggestions and do not be afraid to switch therapists
if you not feel like it is a good fit.
What do you do for fun?
I enjoy time with my family; we spend most of our time homesteading a small
farm. I am a DIYer and enjoy building things, as well as raising and growing
our own food.
