I chose to study Psychology out of my desire to learn more about the internal workings of the human mind; to someday help others gain insight into their own minds to help overcome obstacles related to mental health. I have extensive experience both in my personal and professional life interacting with those who suffer the debilitating symptoms and effects of mental illness. My own personal experience interacting with those who suffer these symptoms of mental illness inspired me to develop and further my education in the field of psychology. I would one day like to enroll in a graduate program to further my education in the field of counseling psychology and obtain licensure in this field. Professionally I have acquired five plus years of experience as a Mental Health Worker and Activities coordinator at an assistant living facility for those suffering persistent and severe mental illness. This experience has provided me with an understanding of the importance in facilitating and encouraging the client in taking an active role in their own desired treatment outcomes and goals while successfully learning to manage their overall mental health and wellbeing. I have extensive experience in building rapport with clients, documentation of these interactions and crisis intervention. I would like to further my professional education as I view this as a vital ingredient (along with academic education) maximizing my potential in helping others maximize their own potentials. Most importantly their potential in managing their own mental health and their potential in gaining self sufficiency and a sense of self efficacy in facing whatever comes their way in life. Insightful Psychotherapist with [Number] years of employment in counseling settings and prior history in [Industry]. Proficient applying cognitive behavioral therapy to promote client growth and change. Adept facilitating individual and couples therapy with focus on meeting client goals.
