I am a licensed mental health counselor and certified coach with more than 10 years of experience. My journey into the world of mental health and coaching is not your typical story. Just like most young adults, I went to college right after high school selecting a career that I thought was popular at the time. I majored in office administration hoping for a long and rewarding career in managing corporate offices. Like most, I ended up with jobs not closely related to my career. Instead, in my earlier work life, I ended up servicing commercial real estate loans at a major bank to managing corporate gifts at the local PBS television station.
