…and we’re back

It has been almost a year since my last post and I am pleased to come back to this site feeling refreshed and motivated right off the heels of the 2014 American Counseling Association Conference.

This year’s conference was held in Honolulu, Hawaii and provided many of us a chance to learn, re-engage with our practice and our passions, and recuperate from a bitter cold winter we’ve experienced on the East coast.

I had the privilege of hearing from great minds on the subjects ranging from solution-focused therapy and its many practices and applications in secondary school to workshops that helped to demystify the DSM 5.

This spring brings a lot of change. A new job, new client population, new ways of engaging in the world around me. I look forward to bringing that back to this blog space.

We’re back.

The unbearable weight of the first post

It’s a painstaking process, coming up with the very first blog post.  Do I start first with who I am?  What this is about?  Why I am here?  In this strange new digital space, I feel as out of place as a nun at a stag party.  What am I doing here?

So, I followed WordPress instructions and actually completed, step-by-step, the “how to get started tutorial”  No kidding.  Here’s my outline.

That’s me with the curly floating head in the middle consumed by my own idea tree.  The end result was not as epic as I’d hoped.

Following the WordPress guru, I honed in on one topic that allows for all the other interests to sneak on in.  Here is what this site is about.  In one word: Counseling.

In more words: This site is intended for individuals interested in counseling, current counseling students, beginning counselors, and even the older generation who may find wisdom in their own words after listening to a tadpole counselor learn the ropes.  Feel free to use what’s here and provide comments and feedback often.
