Work History

Owning your own private practice doesn’t happen overnight. In fact, very few counselors ever go straight from graduation to going solo. There’s a lot of work that happens along the way. The most seasoned therapists will have had a variety of experiences and work opportunities prior to going into business for themselves. These experiences will likely influence their work in the private practice setting. I believe in being transparent about my work history so that you know what you’re getting when you seek my services.
