Leadership and Counseling

I wrote the following article/essay for Chi Sigma Iota which is the Counseling Academic and Professional Honor Society International that I have been blessed to be a member of since 2002. I won second place in their 2010 Essay Contest on Leadership: The Many Voices of CSI and wanted to share that article with you. It will also be published on their website at: www.csi-net.org.

Leadership: Words from a Past Student, Present Counselor, and Future Entrepreneur

It has been with great pleasure that I received the utmost in a counseling education that a university could provide by attending Bradley University in Peoria, IL. I was invited to become a member of Chi Sigma Iota in 2002. I was a very young 22 year old graduate student who was still finding her footing in the world of counseling and mental health. By becoming a member of the university’s chapter, I gained the knowledge and experience I carry to this day from fellow Chi Sigma Iota members and leaders.

As I entered the working world in 2003 after my graduation at Bradley, I was challenged by the initial position I took as a counselor in chemical dependency and substance abuse. By utilizing my ties to Chi Sigma Iota, following their periodic newsletters, and gaining CEUs offered through the fraternity, I was able to become a highly successful counselor and leader from the start of my early twenties.

Now I am entering a new phase in both my personal and professional careers. I am in the process of opening my own private practice. Without the assistance and resources that Chi Sigma Iota has provided me through the years, I would never have been able to say that I am actually starting my own business. With this new beginning, I want to pursue Dr. Herr’s and Chi Sigma Iota’s mission.  I want to continue to conduct and continually improve my professionalism, leadership, and excellence in the counseling field.  I plan to do this by engaging with the fraternity to promote scholarship and research among students, professors, and practitioners in the mental health community and counseling field. I also plan to take on more leadership roles both within the fraternity and outside with other counseling associations with which I am affiliated.

The future lies ahead, and it looks very bright for both myself and my fellow Chi Sigma Iota members.  "I have learned, as a rule of thumb, never to ask whether you can do something. Say, instead, that you are doing it. Then fasten your seat belt. The most remarkable things follow." – Julia Cameron

First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you
don't mind. I was curious to know how you
center yourself and clear your mind before writing. I've had trouble clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas
out. I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the
first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted just trying to
figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
Thank you!

Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put
the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it
pinched her ear. She never wants to go back!
LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!
