  • Surprising Myself in My Second Career as a Counselor

    Aug 04, 2011
    When I ran, screaming, from corporate America nine years ago, I swore that there were things I’d never want to see or do again. I wanted no part of organizational management- away with the flowcharts, spreadsheets, and silly buzzwords that we euphemistically used: “push-back” to refer to a major system of conflict between two people, for example. I envisioned becoming invested in the transgender liberation struggle as a counselor, working with clients to tackle significant problems in living directly.

  • Our Families Revealed Through Our Counseling Lens

    Jul 12, 2011
    In the years since I entered my undergraduate studies in human services, through graduate school and into the present day, family stuff (italics added here for emphasis) has always been a fascinating thing to examine. Encountering counseling theories was like a treasure trove- “that’s so why she does that when my mother’s around!” and we won’t even talk about the riches the DSM revealed.

  • From Caring Supporter to Scientific Reporter: Sharing Our Written Work with Clients and Research Participants

    Jun 29, 2011
    Over the past couple of weeks, I’ve had the interesting experience of sharing with both clients and research participants articles that I’d written about them.

One of the things I appreciate the most about counseling in the LGBT community is the spirit of helping others that pervades.

  • Taking Counseling to a Global Audience: Reflecting on my Conference in Glasgow

    Jun 22, 2011
    I really appreciate when I have the good fortune to stumble on a professional opportunity that blows my expectations out of the water. I tend to have high expectations, a trait that has had led to inevitable disappointments in life. I think that over the years, I have learned to curb a bit of that an approach things from a perspective that I’d like to think is more Zen-like.

  • Counselor Educators of the World Unite…Around CACREP

    Jun 14, 2011
    I have to begin this week’s blog entry by explaining that I’m a union gal of old, having become a steward with the Communication Workers of America shortly after beginning my first career in telecommunications. Through those times, as well as in my later phone company years as a manager, I came to understand and respect the give and take that came from having a collective bargaining unit (our union) in assuring that the company’s logical goals of profitability were made with account given to the rights and needs of the workers who were building that profit.
