ohh happy day

The day has finally come. 
It is here. 
I have been waiting to write this post. 
Hoping that someday I would be able to write this post. 

So the news is  ....

I GOT A JOB!!!!!!!!!!

A big girl job. I am going to be blessed with the opportunity to be some little kiddo's therapist. Yesterday, I accepted a position with a community mental health center in Anderson Co. It's about a 35 minute commute from my house, but it is so worth it to be doing something that I feel so passionate about.

This job is EXACTLY what I have been waiting for. When I decided to go to graduate school, I did so with the hopes of becoming a therapist someday. I dreamed of working with children, but was open to the idea of counseling adults as well. Throughout the past few years I have been working with adults with substance abuse problems, and have grown to love it. 

Throughout the past four months {since graduation}, I questioned if God still wanted me to work with kids, or if I should pursue working with adults. I applied for jobs all of the board, and when this one was offered to me - well - there was my answer. 


I will be doing individual counseling with children and adolescents. Most of the therapy sessions will be held at the child's school. In addition, I will have the opportunity to work with an after school / group therapy program of elementary age children. I will also be co-facilitating group therapy with middle school aged children.

I'm sure this job will lead to lots of good stories. 
And, of course I will share them with you!

I am giddy about God providing me with this job ... but I am also super pumped about another thing. I promise to share as soon as plans are finalized.

I am one lucky lady!!!
