- About me
- NOTE: I serve as a volunteer staff member on TeenHelp. The support and advice I offer falls under my role as a "non-professional." I cannot treat you as a client, meaning I cannot diagnose you or offer any "professional" services. I am happy to assist you in your search for a mental health professional, should TeenHelp prove to be inadequate for meeting your needs!
I apologize in advance for my tendency to post loooong responses for VM's, PM's, forum posts, and HelpLINK tickets. =P
I earned my Master's degree in clinical psychology in April 2013! I plan to become a marriage and family therapist in a few years, and have extensive research and peer counseling experience beginning at the age of 16 (I am now 25 years old). I am currently working with two organizations: a non-profit agency that specializes in grief/loss counseling, and a private practice that focuses on a variety of issues.
I have been in four relationships, and have learned a great deal from each one. The first was abusive in more ways than one; the second lasted for over four years (despite being long-distance); the third was a "rebound relationship" (which, of course, ended badly); the fourth has been absolutely amazing, and my fiancé proposed on September 7th, 2013! <3 I truly believe that, with effective communication and a great deal of commitment, long-distance relationships can work under the right circumstances. I can honestly say I have experienced the best and worst aspects of relationships, and hope I can use those experiences to help other members on TeenHelp. =)
I am currently a Project Advisor, the Volunteering Officer, an Article Editor, Disputes Committee member, and Performance Committee member. I joined TeenHelp on June 11th, 2009, and became a HelpLINK Mentor on July 16th, 2009. I was promoted to Forum Moderator for "Relationships and Dating" on December 16th, 2009, "Friends and Family" on March 15th, 2010, "Mental Health" on July 29th, 2011, "Education and Careers" on May 17th, 2012, and "Rape and Abuse" on January 25th, 2014. In the past, I held the roles of Avatar Magazine Editor (Mind and Body), Social Networking Officer, Social Groups Moderator, and Operations and Procedures Committee member.
Feel free to send me a VM, PM, or e-mail anytime, about anything! I'm here to listen, not to judge.
