Write a paragraph about your Field Education Experience. Include such details as site, mentor, length/time, and your responsibilities.
It was my privilege to engage in a Field Education Experience for my degree in Christian Counseling at a private counseling practice specializing in art and play therapy. Dan Bayly is an LCPC and the counseling director at Paradise Creek Counseling in Moscow, Idaho. Mr. Bayly was my mentor during my 2 months in working with various ages of children and young adults dealing with a range of psycho-social issues. My main responsibilities included observation and interaction with clients during their sessions (particularly in the realm of experiential play therapy). In addition, I also learned and performed professional counseling clerical duties such as filing insurance, organizing appointments, filing patient charts, and taking patient notes. This time also included involvement with a local chapter of Celebrate Recovery, a Christian form of “AA” group therapy focused on Christ to help those in the community struggling with “hurts, habits, and hangups.” My responsibilities in this aspect of my FEE centered on building relationships and encouraging individual sharing by being an accountability partner for those people desiring help in their commitment to the program.
2. Write a paragraph about your Christian service experiences. List any significant serviceopportunities you participated in while at Central. Describe the location, responsibilities,
and length of service there.
During my time at Central, I had the opportunity to experience a diversity of Christian service experiences. These ranged from working with the inner city youth of Moberly …
… me in a unique position at Central in being married for several years and so my husband and I had the opportunity to help encourage many couples in their faithfulness while dating and many of those individuals are now married and have healthy relationships. Perhaps my favorite individual at Central whom God placed in my life to be an encouragement to exercise and strengthen their faith was Jmichael Greenwood. Jmichael faced mental, physical, and financial struggles. Many nights he spent in our home pouring out his heart and God used both my husband and I to pray and stand with him. Last May, my husband got the opportunity to help Jmichael walk across the stage to receive his diploma. God reminded me in that moment that discipleship is about walking alongside individuals helping them in their spiritual journey. This is what I had the privilege of doing with Jmichael.
