  • My Life In Crisis

    Aug 14, 2015
    It is hard to believe that I have been working in crisis for almost two years now. When I first began I had no real idea what to expect from day to day. It is a bit comical that years later I still feel the exact same way when I come into work. There is never any way to know what can happen in a day working as a Crisis Clinician.

One of the girls offered to go and talk to her but was stopped by another girl. She told her “No, let Nicole go. She knows what to do.”

  • The truth about pressure

    Sep 05, 2012
    Lately I have been feeling a bit lost in what I am doing with myself. It would seem that this should be the most care free time I have had in years with my schooling finally being finished and my babies in daycare while I search for a job. However, I ironically feel a greater sense of unrest than I did before. I know it is partly due to the fact that I feel ill at ease not having a clear professional “purpose”.
