Options are Good

Discovering Your Professional Possibilities & Potential

Thursday, March 24, 2016

Over the past several years I have heard countless counseling students complain that they do not have a good understanding of their career options following graduation. Unfortunately, most assume that their only options are private practice or agency work. Rest assured, that is not the case! There is actually a multitude of career paths directly and indirectly related to the counseling field.

Since I was a child I can remember hearing my father say, “Options are good.” Over the years this statement has motivated me to explore both my professional and personal possibilities and potential. As a professional therapist we have countless opportunities to use our theoretical, practical, and skill-based knowledge in various career settings, including:

  • Hospital rotation
  • Schools
  • Veterans Affairs
  • Humanitarian Missions
  • Retreat Programs
  • Research
  • Many others!...

At the 2016 Family Therapy Conference, I will continue this list and empower you to embrace your potential to shape communities and relationships. Register before April 1!
