AUTHENTICITY & CONGRUENCE
I had a professor when I was an undergraduate student at The Pennsylvania State University who used to say that all she did was help people to speak their truths. I have found there to be an inherent gift in being able to speak one's truth.
As a child, when I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I always said I wanted to be a therapist. The desire to be a therapist resulted in my attendance at The Pennsylvania State University majoring in Human Development and Family Studies. My experiences with faculty members and graduate teaching assistants resulted in my decision to apply to graduate school. I attended the University of England in Portland, Maine for my MSW. It was not until my first job at an agency where I was told I would be working with children, adolescents and families that I actually felt that being a therapist was what I was meant to do. My goal is to assist the clients with whom I work to live more authentic lives. Speak your truth.
