It’s funny…I actually started this blog as a freshman undergrad in 2008. And it’s still here. And now I’m going back to school…something I thought I’d never do!
A few months ago I found out I was accepted into my first pick grad school.
Now if you know me you’ll know I NEVER pictured myself going back to school. Once I completed undergrad it was DEUCES IM OUT.
However, this past year shifted a lot for me, as it has for us all, and it’s made me reflect on what matters most to me and how I want to spend my life.
So I’m doing something I thought I could never do because I didn’t feel smart enough or that I wasn’t “good” enough to do. I thought I had no business doing this.
But it’s something I’ve held in my heart for years at this point and the illumination that last year brought gave me the courage to finally take steps in that direction.
I’m going back to school to get my master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I begin an online program at Southern New Hampshire University in March and I am beyond excited. I took this photo just moments after the call that I got in 🥰
My goal is to eventually have my own private practice, live on a ranch, and offer in-person and online therapy to Colorado residents. If I’m dreaming even BIGGER…it will also include a senior animal sanctuary of some kind and perhaps even animal-assisted trauma therapy. Who knows!
