Hello and happy new year!
First, I apologize for the lack of posts over the last few months. I have been busy writing a new blog for PsychCentral called Happily Imperfect, articles for The Good Men Project, and for my counseling blog. As you can see, I’ve been busy writing! One of the things I realized last year is that I like to write and I want to get even better.
As I write this post, I am reflecting on my professional accomplishments in 2015. The highlights include:
- Attending the Most Awesome Conference for Therapists and Rock the Media School (both of which spear-headed tremendous growth for me)
- Connecting online and in-person with like-minded professionals
- Beginning to publish my writing beyond my own blog
- Being quoted in 15 or so articles (including the print edition of Redbook magazine!)
- 2 podcast interviews
- Growing my social media following
I finished out the year with a fabulous vacation with extended family to celebrate my parents’ 50th anniversary. Self-care and rest are important (practicing what I preach)! I also read a great book while on vacation so look for the book review coming later this month.
For 2016, I plan to submit my writing to several more publications, write a self-help workbook, promote and schedule speaking gigs and workshops, collaborate with several colleagues on interviews and writing, create a schedule that allows me to be home more days after school to be around for my kids.
I would also love to get a supervision group started. This was a goal that didn’t materialize last year. If you are in the San Jose area and are interested, please email me at email@example.com so we can explore specifics.
So, what are your goals for 2016?
I’d love to support you in your professional goals whether they are licensure, gaining clarity, combating burn-out, or dealing with emotional issues. Please email me to schedule a coaching session, counseling session, or to interview for supervision.
I wish you all a productive and satisfying professional year!
