What I like about NDMHCA: I love and appreciate the networking that we have among our members. I always know that support, collaboration, and professional input is only a phone call away. I enjoy working with the college population and serving as a supervisor allows me another avenue to stay abreast of current events and research. Each year I look forward to our NDCA Mid-winter conferences as well as our pre-conference sponsored by our NDMHCA. I value the opportunities that have been afforded to me to serve in many leadership roles in both NDMHCA and NDCA. I encourage any and all members to take the risk to step into a leadership role. I have gained a wealth of information and materials that not only are helpful in my counseling practice but also benefits me as a faculty member in the psychology department on our campus.
