ROLES ::   Clinical Counselor - Stave Lake Correctional Centre

Let's just say I like a challenge. I'm a writer - so why not write a Masters degree? When I received my MA in Counseling Psychology, I took an even bigger challenge: rookie therapist at Stave Lake, the country's only prison exclusively for sex offenders. Even there the story theme was key: when those men came forward and talked about their lives and crimes, it opened the possibility to create a different plot, a changed narrative. More than anything else, I learned how to really listen while encouraging reticent people to share their stories.
