My identity has been so wrapped up with being a therapist and I have been enjoying it so far. I started out as an in-home therapist and was fortunate enough to move up to being a supervisor and later a director but found my true calling in doing therapeutic work with children experiencing trauma and abuse. My undergraduate was actually in music education and I do miss singing and performing and will sometimes still do with my son and have a mock performance at home. This year in August will be my 11th year as a therapist and im toying with the idea of continuing my education but nothing is set in stone just yet.
