Counselor Empowerment & Advocacy
Learn how to build skills that will help you become more confident in your clinical and administrative abilities as a counseling professional while also maintaining life balance.
Identify ways to advocate for yourself as a clinician in order to strengthen your professional voice, promote positive change, and demand growth and continuous evolvement in the profession.
Understand your personal and professional rights as you navigate the field and deal with challenging situations, in addition to your responsibilities to protect the public and enhance the profession.
Clinical Administrative Skill Building
Most counselors do not have a business background. However, it does not negate the importance of having necessary, yet basic administrative skills to assist you throughout your career. To be empowered as a counseling professional, you must learn how to do both counseling and administration effectively. My experience in executive administration and accreditation planning can help you do just that!
