  • Having a Relationship in the Digital Age

    May 02, 2011
    Before I begin this blog, let me start by saying this is not just about dating. Rather it is about interpersonal relationships in general in today’s tech oriented world. Let’s take a moment and think about all the different ways someone can get in touch with another person these days: phone call, email, text, facebook, instant message, twitter, blog comments, Skype…and the list of social networking sites can go on and on…but you get the gist.

  • When Is Enough Enough?

    Apr 21, 2011
    I’m hopping off the social media train this week because I feel compelled to talk about a pressing matter for myself and would absolutely love some feedback on this particular blog. Last week, I discussed what parts of myself am I going to sacrifice for my professional identity. As a doctoral student who is trying to make a name for herself and flesh out her vita, as well as a new group practice owner, I am finding myself questioning when is enough enough? And by that I mean when is it ok for me to say no and not feel like I’m neglecting something.

    Apr 07, 2011
    I think by now you all have deduced that I enjoy my social media. I tweet (professionally as UltreyaTherapy) and I am on facebook. I tend to focus these blogs on technology in counseling, but I have found myself this last week feeling a need to talk about a trend that I’ve been seeing in my twitter and facebook feeds lately.

  • Supervision 2.0: Thinking Inside the Box

    Mar 31, 2011
    Ok, so if you attended the ACA conference and you decided to peruse presenters you MAY have seen my name in the back as a poster presenter. Let me first say that I am completely humbled by that experience and was so grateful for the opportunity. Let me also say that IF you were one of the few that came by, thank you and can you please email me because somehow I lost my registration book with everyone’s email! I am mortified by that small fact for the record.
