What I Want To Do When I Grow Up…

Outpatient therapist, Mentor Program Coordinator, Program Manager, Assistant Director, Family Teacher, Senior Center Manager. – these are some of the professional titles I have had since graduating college.

Bathroom partition installer, Federal Express dispatcher, deli clerk, phone solicitor for Encyclopedia Britannica, dolphin trainer,UPS semi-truck worker.- Jobs I held before college.

So I have decided to make a change. I want to try something that will actually benefit my family and my finances instead of only those i help as a social worker. I have worked the 80 hour a week deal, been on-call for those that suffer from mental health issues and need emergency assistance. I have worked most of my jobs way underpaid and way over worked  

So I am interested in trying something that will allow me to enjoy my family and still be able to support them.The problem is that I don’t know where to begin looking . I did speak to someone in the auto industry recently and it seemed interesting to me simply because most of the people I talked to in it are doing well, and I could use some ” doing well”  about now. The idea of making good money without the stress of constant mental health issues to tend to, and constant financial struggles because social workers and therapists do not make a decent wage, is appealing.

So here I am in limbo wondering what I should do. What is God’s plan for my life? What am I supposed to do with the second half of my life? Do I need a break from mental health and working with everyone’s troubles? I think it has slowly eaten away at me and it seems like a good time to look into something else. I don’t know, maybe I am just having an episode of anxiety -after all I do ” have” generalized anxiety disorder. Perhaps I am in a depressive episode -I do ” have” major depressive disorder. Although my PTSD could be kicking in. Who knows though, sometimes I think my other personality is speaking lately. Oh well, I am just glad I didn’t get too caught up in all the labels and DSM assignments like some of the others.

Social Worker - 20+ years. Experienced with mental and behavioral health as well as alternative education, juvenile justice, addictions treatment also. Currently working with agencies and insurers on changing the way all the systems in these work, using my methods and model of treatments for all the above. We have a horrible system in place our success rates in treatment are 20 -35% and we pay doctors to keep us sick. We also have a problem with drug companies paying doctors to write for dangerous meds to even kids, all in the name of $.. I plan on changing that and in the meantime have been aggressively working at using this site as a platform to offer coaching, counseling and many other services in several languages..oh, and services that actually work! There's a new concept.. I use models I have developed and used with success rates more like 75-85%. Only programs I personally put together and ran in my 20 years in field... Please join the incredible group of followers here as very exciting things are happening. We currently have followers in 60 countries. Most of all, I promise to never let you leave my watch still suffering. My goal has always been to educate, dial in the least restrictive, least expensive , most successful and timely treatment possible. I want everyone to know that our country is a pharmaceutical playground and there ARE cures for things like cancer, liver disease, parkinsons and many more..as a matter of fact they are being cured ( not symptoms treated forever) but actually cured of diseases in many countries who don't allow drug companies to dictate laws.. Money is the only reason we are not using the same healthy and safe natural remedies that God put on this planet. Am I saying that our healthcare system is aware of cures but watches millions die slow painful deaths all in the name of money? Well, I will have to think about it - UMM- YES! I am saying that. If you have not read my homepage please do..let me tease you with a tidbit to get you there... Did you know that the USA is one of only 2 countries in entire world that even ALLOWS any drug companies to put an ad for drugs on television? Hmm. Why does the entire world protect their own, and make sure swindlers cant twist their minds an manipulate them into buying snake oil from drug companies..and why do they make legal the natural plants that heal cancer and so much more? I think you get it... Click Follow...
