8 Things They Didn't Teach Me in Counseling School



August of this year marks 11 years since I graduated from graduate school with an M.A in Counseling Psychology. I learned quite a bit in those three years of higher education, and it was invaluable. I spent over 8 months in internship and 5 in practicum during my program plus 11 years of work experience after.


That being said, there are many things I was not taught and I still have daily moments at my full-time job thinking, "Why didn't they mention this?" I want to share some of those with you today.
