Counselors: Problems the same in different cultures
CICERO – Kathleen Allen is a child of the ’60s. She developed a wanderlust while in her first years of college that carried her to Santa Fe, N.M., where she found the trail head to her true calling.
Allen, a licensed clinical professional counselor, is celebrating her 25th year at Family Service & Mental Health Center. She started as a case manager, helping people make the transition from hospital to home. On occasion, she still will visit clients during a crisis. Her primary duties as a clinical professional counselor, however, are to see clients who have problems and want to change.
“I respond to what is in front of me,” she said. “It’s hard to explain precisely, except we live in a complex society where people expect more of themselves and others. It makes sense to help them see that. I try to makes them see what’s possible, change their perspective. I tell them my job is to put myself out of business,” Allen said.
