I am a counselor. I am also a client of counseling, a friend of people who have thought about going to counseling, the person who answers the phone at the office sometimes, the classroom parent ... and many other roles. In these roles, I have become very familiar with the questions and concerns that are common about going to counseling. I also know that often these questions and fears can stand in the way of actually getting the help we need to move forward. So, in this post, I will lay out some of the most common fears and questions I have had personally, or heard from others.
Hello all, my name is Hunter McCullough. I am an undergrad Psychology student at Georgia Southern University. Ever since I was in middle school, I knew that I wanted to work with kids after college. Majoring in Psychology has led me to be able to do just that.

Ebb and flow are critical to the function of our lives, our world.
I am so excited to share this link! I was asked by the Career Services department at Georgia Southern to be part of a video project highlighting various careers, so that students working through a career search can be exposed to different professionals in different fields talking about their journey, experience, and day-to-day life. If you click on the link (on the video), you will go to the Candid Career page where you can see my interview split into 5 different sections.
Happy National Play Therapy Week!
