Positive and fast paced work environment
Caseload Manager / Counselor (Former Employee) – Oxnard, CA – April 18, 2016
Typical day at work: Conducting one on one counseling sessions with patients which consisted of either working on their individual treatment plans, conducting assessments, or working on and finding tools to deter relapse, manage anxiety and/or depression, or medical ailments.
What I learned: How to connect with individuals on a personal level and create a safe and comfortable environment in which they can openly express their innermost personal problems they have either faced in their past, or currently facing without feeling judged or looked down upon in any way.
Management and co-workers: Great people, positive and encouraging. Were always eager to help and offer insight.
Hardest part of the job: Very early work hours
Most enjoyable part of the job: Providing a service to people in need and making a difference in their lives. The experience gained was priceless and taught me a lot about how to handle highly sensitive situations and information, and how to move forward in treating said issues according to the individuals needs and desires.
Positive work environment, room for promotion
