Reflections on 2015 and Setting Goals

Reflections on 2015 and Setting Goals

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 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!
