What are hearing from your peers in this activity concerning their input and what is your feedback? a hope or ambition of achieving something My name is Kierra Furlow and I am a senior here at Fort Valley State University. My professional aspiration is to become a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, and to establish my own private practice. In order to prepare myself as a student who have these aspirations, it is important that I familiarize myself with the literature as it relates to consulting, and also ask my professors who are already in this or similar profession for professional advice. Things that I can do to enhance my knowledge outside of the classroom, is to volunteer at an local family counseling center, where I can possibly have a hands-on experience with the profession. Being that I am currently an intern at the Mental Health and Counseling Service on campus, I have a plethora of knowledge of the "do's and dont's" of counseling, especially as it relates for confidentiality. Hey Kierra, to me it seems like your professional aspirations will be here sooner because you are a senior that’s about to graduate. Since you plan on starting your own private practice, I feel that you should ask our professor. Only because he always talks and give us lots advice on what we will experience if we ever decide to do that. Since you already have an intern you are experiencing first hand what goes on and getting a jump on what to expect from others. Lastly, I like that you stated you have knowledge of the do’s and don’ts. So, you know how to confront certain situations and resolve them.
