Phew! My first day of subbing is complete!

December 9 I completed my full-time community mental health internship at Spectrum Human Services’ PROS Program! The last weeks flew by and it was hard saying goodbye to the clients who had shared their life struggles with me. I am looking forward to continuing to promote others’ quality of life in my first professional counseling …

Can you smell that cinnamon?  Can you smell the rich coffee aroma?  Well, check it out, it’s a decaf coffee with a sprinkle of cinnamon and it’s delicious. It’s strange for me to order a decaf coffee, but I needed to do a little work on my thesis and I thought I’d go up to …

In the end my friends we will all be together again…

Three quarters of the way done with my master’s degree?  One more semester?  It’s hard to believe that I’ve been in school since I was 5 years old.  Although I’m not a math major, math has always been a strong point for me, therefore, I’ve been in school for 18 years of my total 23.  …

Another week with the wiki….

Hi everyone, The theme for this past week was the importance of building community partnerships. For health initiatives or any other initiatives for that matter, it is integral that different organizations work together to reach the utmost success. For the assignments, we had a chance to write/participate in a discussion board and use a wiki …

My Plan for Today

If you were to take a picture of my mind right now, you would probably see a little glowing ember in my working memory.  There would be all these thoughts about humor and teaching and self-control and impulsivity and early literacy skills and they would all be reaching out to each other—trying to join each …
