I AM WORTH WORKING FOR AND CHANGING FOR

Update: I have completed my master's program and am now working at a private practice as a family therapist. I am what is called an Associate Marriage and Family Therapist (AMFT), and as soon as I have my hours completed and take a test, I will be licensed (LMFT). Sometimes I cannot believe my good fortune to be able to do what I do.

Past posts:

*I was accepted into the graduate program and am now working on my MS in counseling: marriage, family, child therapy. I just started (Aug 2014) so I have another 2 years, followed by a year of internship.

*I got my BS in psychology in May (2014)

Personal Information:
My name is Kimberlynn. I am Irish-American (57% Irish based on ancestry DNA). I am especially proud of my Irish heritage. My family hails from the province of Ulster, in Antrim, Belfast, Derry, Donegal, and Down; and the province of Leinster in Dublin. I grew up in Los Angeles County (Wilmington, Long Beach, Compton), but I have lived in the Central Valley of California (Visalia / Porterville, and now Clovis) for the past 30 years. Once I am licensed as an LMFT I will go into private practice. I am very interested in volunteering my therapeutic services as a United Nations Volunteer (UNV) for refugees in war-torn countries. I am currently in the application process for a doctorate: PhD in Marriage, Family, and Child Therapy with an emphasis in Culture, Diversion, and Social Justice.


Other Information:
I have an AA in social science, a BS in psychology, and an MS in Counseling: Marriage, Family, and Child Therapy and am registered with the BBS as an AMFT




I don't watch much TV - although I am insanely addicted to Criminal Minds - I love me some Dr. Spencer Reed. I do read A LOT. I love to read paranormal stuff - especially if it comes in a series. My current favorite is the Inheritance Cycle by Christopher Paolini

    I was just looking at my pictures when I noticed that you had left a comment on the dragon with a kettle bell! Thank you so much. It was a gift to my chiropractor who diagnosed me with a serious back problem. He had been helping me to continue to strengthen my core, and he is a certified kettle bell instructor. I had to have back surgery almost 6 years ago. (Bone graft was put in.) So now I am ready to take up the kettle bell again with him to help strengthen me. I loved doing the kettle bell! Best exercise there is all around! The red kettle bell in the picture is the 75 pound bell and it is known as the dragon. Thank you for your comment on my picture. It was much appreciated! emoticon
