How did you first learn about LifeWorks?
I first learned about LifeWorks through a former LifeWorks employee, Dawnn Marie Pirani Brumfield. Knowing my clinical background and research, she thought that I would be a perfect fit for LifeWorks.
What drew you to LifeWorks?
What drew me to LifeWorks was the commitment to learning and to the LGBTQIA+ community. I have been a part of a practice that was LGBTQIA+ affirming, but to find a practice that intentionally centers the LGBTQIA+ community is a dream come true! As a lifelong learner, I love that LifeWorks has implemented in-services and trainings into the ethos of the practice.
What are you hoping to gain at LifeWorks and how do you imagine it will impact your future?
As my first fulltime therapist position out of school, there is a lot that I will learn as I develop and hone my voice within the clinical space. I am hoping to gain a greater understanding of sexuality, particularly with the trainings on BDSM and polyamory. I know that all the knowledge that I gain at LifeWorks will be beneficial to the communities that I want to serve as well as my future writings and professional speaking.
In the short amount of time since you joined LifeWorks, what has surprised you most and why?
What has surprised me the most is how friendly everyone has been thus far. Not that I expected people to be mean, but I have felt welcomed even from my first interview.
Anything else professionally that you are particularly looking forward to this year?
I am looking forward to building up my caseload. Having worked with clients before, I know that you are not always 100% sure of who will come to you. I have often found it interesting that the people that I attract in the clinical space show me more about myself than I can imagine. LOL.
