Productive and fun work place with an excellent clinical team.
Student Counselor (Current Employee) – Hempstead, NY – February 25, 2015
As a counselor, my schedule varied widely every day. First thing in the morning at work I checked my e-mails to update myself about any new changes, information and instructions from my supervisor. For example if there were any changes in topic for the day for group session, if any client was absent, if there were any new admissions that I needed to take care of and so forth. I spent the majority of my week in session with my clients. These were one-on-one counseling sessions and multiple group sessions. I also spent a few hours every day in training, observing, and performing office work.
By conducting individual and group sessions I have learned to deal with new situations and/or crisis patiently. I maintained excellent relationship with my supervisor, co-workers, management team and clinical team.
The hardest part of my job was dealing with sudden changes. For example, changing the group discussion or psycho-ed topic 10 munities before running the group.
The enjoyable part of my work was when I saw improvement in my clients and in addition I have always enjoyed working with my clinical team.
