Self analysis, counselor, professional development


As a budding mental health counselor, it is more important than ever that I am attuned with my identity, beliefs, and background. My effectiveness as a counselor hinges on my ability to be self-aware of my thoughts, emotions, and behaviors as I sit with clients. Therefore, I am pleased to get the opportunity to explore myself throughout this self-analysis project. The following project summarizes the professional development journey that I have taken during my graduate program that will support my career for many years to come. Thank you for joining me on a journey of self-exploration that is fueled by my desire to be the best counselor possible for my clients.
