Through the Eyes of a Therapist Podcast has reached 10 thousand plus downloads!  Thank you to all listeners!


Career counseling can be very helpful for people who are just starting out in college or at a university or those who are changing careers.  They need to be aware of upcoming career/job market trends, career/job requirements, college or university admission requirements, military career knowledge, and personality/skills matching.  My guest today, Vanessa, is a career counselor at a local community college.  She does lots of things like skills and aptitude testing, advising, crisis intervention, and works with the early-college high school students.  She also teaches as an associate professor and serves on different school committees.
