This month's spotlight is on one of our members, Helen Godfrey. Read on to learn more about her!
Tell us a little about yourself
I attended the University of San Diego, MA in Counseling, and the University of Oregon, BA in French. I’ve been in the career services field since 2000 and an LPC in Texas since 2014.
How long have you been a member of HLPCA and why did you join?
I joined in 2012 to connect with other professionals in the field.
Are there other populations you would like to work with or specializations you would like to pursue?
My focus is career and life coaching as well as therapy for anxiety and depression. One reason I love counseling as a profession is because there is always something interesting to learn. I love being able to build upon the skills that I’ve already learned and always add something new. I am interested in so many topics but next up will probably be taking marriage counseling classes.
Tell us something about yourself other members may not know
I was a Peace Corps volunteer in francophone West Africa for 3 years and I also lived and worked in Japan for 2 years. I love Earl Gray tea with milk; giving advice about cats to new owners; walking; worldbeat music; reading (especially counseling books as well as books about cultures. One of my favorite cultural books is Toujours Provence by Peter Mayle) and fine dining.
