During those years, I got a second Masters degree, this time in psychology, and logged more than 1500 hours seeing clients as a psych intern. To say I was busy is an understatement. It was quite a ride, and I enjoyed it tremendously.
About 10 years went by, and life was good. And then, boom! Two things happened simultaneously. First, I lost my job. The agency closed its doors, and just like that, we were all unemployed. I thought I’d never stop crying.
As I was grieving the loss of a job I loved, my beloved cat died, very unexpectedly. Now I knew I’d never stop crying.
When I came out of the shock and grief of it all, I realized that I didn’t want to look for work in marketing. That chapter was behind me. I wanted to go back to my roots – helping people in pain.
And, so, a new chapter began. I went back to school and the necessary credentials to be certified as a coach in three different areas – life coaching, grief coaching, and ADHD/Executive Functioning coaching. It took time, commitment and perseverance, but it was so worth it! I am once again living the truth of the statement “If you make your living doing what you love, it will never feel like work”. I am grateful for my good fortune, and I am here to help you find yours.
