My Values, Beliefs, and Clinical Gestalt with Individuals and Systems
I was raised in a religious family with strong beliefs in faith and helping others as God would want us to do. I have strong values in honesty, kindness, love, faith and in doing what is right by others.

It will be hard to work with some people such as spousal abusers, child abusers, neglectful parents or anyone that tries to hurt or abuse someone else. My husband became addicted to drugs and was abusive during his use of them so it is very personal to me. It will be easier to step in to help out the one being or that has been abused than it will be to help the abuser. I know that I can do it but, it will just be a little more trying.

At one time I also had birds, a rabbit, and a guinea pig. I am not sure what that says about me other than I love to love. I tend to take in abandoned or abused animals until we can find good homes for them and have done so since I was a small child.
During high school, and even now, all of my friends and classmates would always come to me to discuss their problems. They knew that I would not judge them or repeat what was said to me. This is part of what has driven me to want to become a counselor. I can listen without being judgmental but also helping them figure out,...
