Since teaching adjunct at ITT, the passion for instructing has flared. I would really like to or I think I would like to teach the future counselors and social workers of America on the University track…well you know what that means right? This kid is going to have to go back to school for a Ph.D if that’s really what I want to do and get PAID. If I do that, this kid will have to find a job at a college or university in order to get tuition paid for. These not for profit companies do not have tuition reimbursement as much as I would like or if anything at all. I’m thinking and thinking…praying and praying. Teaching actually runs in my blood. My aunts are educators, my dad teaches and my cousin is an educator. Just feels right. I am thinking I could increase my skill set as a counselor without direct frontline work and increase my finances by the thousands… I could go anywhere I want to go as a professor. Keep me in your prayers, if indeed you are the praying type. 🙂

Counseling is the name of my game. I have counseled so many individuals since my early days of case management when I was just 22 years old. I have seen a lot and been through the highs and lows of working in the helping profession. My back especially can tell you the story of what's it's like to not take self care seriously when working 60 hour week, plus grad school and personal events. I would like to help those who have also not done well in the self care department. Help me..help you counselor. Counseling4Counselor is the place for you!! Check out my other blog as well, which depicts a transition I made due to being burned out in the helping profession. Update September 2014: I moved back to Nashville from Blacksburg, Salem/Roanoke area after being away almost three years. I transitioned from a big southern city to a much smaller rural college town in a little under 3 years. What I learned about myself, God, and other people is priceless..The biggest lessons came when I came back home to Nashville and how the changes within myself, my city and others affected my whole world. Transitions are not easy. They are challenging, full of joy, disappointments, encouraging, feelings of abandonment, feelings of great nostalgia and the whole bipolar like spectrum..without the mania and without the diagnosis. hehe.
