Completed My Counseling Residency

One of the most exciting things that I’m looking forward to in 2018 is becoming a licensed professional counselor! That’s right despite my 3.5 month break from work, I was able to complete all of my 3,500 residency hours.

I submitted my paperwork to the board just a few weeks ago. And you can bet I was happy to snap that picture!

They email replied that my paperwork was received, but they stated that it can be up to 3 months before they approve me to sit for my test (which is $250 and intense pressure to pass it!). I’m not necessarily in a hurry to take the test…I need to figure out which program I am going to use to study for it.

I turned in my paperwork before Christmas, and also had the added bonus of celebrating the agency wide Christmas party with my team, as well as our own small team hang out including Secret Santa.

I got a little excited about moscato being served at the agency event…it just makes me feel like an adult, lol!

We even snuck in some fun Christmasey activities with our clients. I learned how to make slime (after failing terribly the first time)

It’s been a long journey with amazing people, and I can’t believe an official paperwork part is almost over :0)
