Excerpt from a Career Journal: Associate Research Clinical Therapist

Publish in an open access journal | Emerald Publishing

I got asked to become an Associate Research Clinical Therapist by __________ from the _______. She and a woman named __________ from _________ are partners to work on a research project called the _____.  The goal is studying ingredients of effective treatment for suicidal adolescents and their families. This sounds great I am praying the meeting goes well. I confess I was a little leery about the _______connection, but that is not going shake me- not when you have presented me with this wonderful opportunity. I know when you do something its one hundred. I won’t be frustrated. I’ll look around and ask you what I am supposed to learn? How will this impact my future? I’m also reminded that if a door closed, it’s because what’s behind it wasn’t meant for me. If you wouldn’t have closed the _________ door I would NEVER have branched out to work with homeless women or learned about ______ or ______ (who is seeking me out again). I thank you for knowing what is best for me. Tyler Perry may have said it best “It doesn’t mean it’s not going to happen it just means you need to go another way if you keep moving eventually you will get to where you going? You have to know, if God wanted you to go that way no man could close the door. —Prayer :“God help me hold on, help me to get what I dream of, help me choose where I am today so that I can appreciate where I am tomorrow. In Jesus name.”

*the “you” in this entry refers to God. I have found to process with God is to find guidance and direction.”
