-Why do you want to work for CHTA? What is different about you than anyone else who works in this field?

I believe that CHTA will help me grow as a counselor while providing me with the support, challenges, and encouragement that I need to cultivate the positive growth I am seeking. I believe my backgrounds in hospice and art make me a unique fit for CHTA. From my perspective, grief and loss are deeply embedded in experiences of trauma. My aspirations as a counselor are to be a compassionate witness to individuals’ stories, to provide space and empathy for experiences of grief and trauma, and to invite creativity into the healing process whenever possible
