Career Counseling Theory
I use a values-based approach in my work with students. I believe that each student needs to consider what values are important to him or her in order to find a career and lifestyle that will be satisfying. I also utilize John Holland's person-environment fit theory to assist students in determining a career that they will enjoy and succeed in.
Hobbies and Leisure Activities
Spending time with my family, shopping, blogging, and traveling.
Did you always know what career you would choose?
No, I changed my mind several times before I decided on a career in counseling. I considered careers in physical therapy, psychology, marketing, medicine, and education.
What are alternate careers that you might enjoy?
I would probably enjoy work as a personal shopper, travel agent, radio disc jockey, or bed and breakfast owner.
