After many years of hard work, I'm a LMHC!!!
I'm so relieved that the process is over and proud of myself of this accomplishment.
Mind you that this is a much more subdued reaction from when I was notified two weeks ago. LOL!
Lately, the question of the day is "What are you going to do now????"
The answer to that is, I'm figuring that out now. A few things I know for sure:
- I want to re-engage in online therapy so I'm going to work on my e-therapy certification as well as redesign this blog, my website, and work on writing. I'm going to have to schedule time to work on these things.
- I want to work on my CAP. MUCH easier once you're a LMHC. Shouldn't be to difficult...
- Get my finances back in order. The aftermath is a Federal Disaster Area.
If something comes along, great! If not, I'm okay (except for my commute but that's in my "things I cannot control" pile). I've made things work for this long, what's a little bit longer?
I also want to add that I have the best friends, family, and co-workers a girl could ask for. The congrats I received made me feel really good. Anything is possible when you have good people around you.
If you're a registered intern, associate counselor, whatever, in mental health, my advice to you is...
