One of my favorite quotes that I has always tried to live by is "Be the change you want to see in the world."
My original goal, before I discovered counseling, was a career in international politics. I received my Bachelors degree in Political Science from Northern Arizona University, with intentions of changing the world for the better. It didn't take a long time of working in Washington, DC, however, for me to discover that politics was not the way in which I was meant to help others.
After returning to Arizona, disillusioned and unsure about my future, I proceeded to do some searching, and eventually, I made my way back to the profession that had been in the back of my mind my entire life.
