We are pleased to feature Dee (Denise) Demers, working with DirectShifts as a Mental Health Counselor with experience in healthcare under her belt. She is an expert in working with different types of staff members and patients.
We asked her to share some of her achievements, experiences, and challenges faced as a mental health counselor with our readers. This will be a source of learning and excellent career advice to all new and aspiring counselors and healthcare professionals in 2022.
If I can help one person, despite the challenges in life being faced, understand that every single human being deserves respect, validation, and a chance to go after a dream, I have achieved the ultimate success in life as I define it. That is the basis of my counseling career.
Tips for a successful counseling career by Dee:
I embraced the energy, professionalism, motivation, support, and guidance in navigating the onboarding process I was involved in. Last but not least, the care and respect were shown to me on every level and during every interaction with DirectShifts staff!
What I use to inspire myself on a daily basis is a quote from my favorite artist, the late Jean-Michel Basquiat: "It's not who you are that holds you back. It's who you think you are not. " Simple words with a profound and life-changing message His short life on this earth was ethereal. The impact of his art is eternal.
