My interest in the human psyche led me to becoming a clinical psychologist

I completed my undergraduate degree in psychology and subsequently pursued graduate training in counseling psychology. Thereafter, I completed a doctorate in clinical psychology, which is my area of expertise. My clinical interests have included work with children, teens, adults, diagnostic assessment and addictions. Over the years, I have adopted a broad range of cognitive behavioral and insight oriented techniques in the psychotherapy and counseling process. In addition to the above, I have lectured and presented training seminars and workshops nationally and internationally. Some of my research and publication interests have included addictions, psychometrics, clinical training and supervision, and the integration of spiritual values in psychotherapy and supervision.

What was your first job like?

The greatest challenge, regardless of your tenure, is always getting along with the boss. Sometimes you are lucky but often times, it's a real pain. I’m speaking from personal experience!!!

I know what you mean! It's hard to bite your tongue sometimes.

It was hard for me to adjust to my boss's demands! She was so bossy and she wanted everything done right away. Talk about demanding! pouting face

The biggest challenge was meeting my quota since I was in insurance. It was pretty unreasonable for a new employee and it was so so stressful! I didn't last long in that job.

I was working in the family business and it was hard to keep up with everyone's expectations. Just because I'm my dad's son doesn't mean I have to be like him. face with steam from nose

I didn't like all the traveling! It was way too much stress. I practically lived in my suitcase!

Traveling for work sounds like fun! What possible downside could there be?!

I was working sales fresh out of college so my biggest challenge was always to make my monthly sales target. If only I had other options back then…
