What do you hope to accomplish as a therapist? What are your goals both professionally and personally?
Professionally- My focus is on research. I want to have my own research lab focusing on treatment of serious mental illness, and conduct clinical research in community treatment settings. Hopefully I’ll get some sort of tenure track position or with some kind of stability so I’m not always dependent on grant funding. I want to continue to do clinical work, and am thinking I might have a small private practice and train/supervise graduate students in working with people with serious mental illness as a part of that.
Personally- My personal life goal right now is to see Beyonce on her tour. Other than that- dogs, travel, a big backyard, lovely friends, lots of tea, the woods, hobbies (remember hobbies, fellow grad students?).
