CMHC Blogger

Hi there! My name is Valerie Wark, and I am a second year masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling student at Franciscan. I was born and raised in Houston, TX, and went to college at the University of Dallas before going to live and teach English in Spain for six months and then coming here to Steubenville! This semester I am not only taking three classes on campus, but I am also completing my counseling internship at Coleman Professional Services and at the FUS Wellness Center during the evening hours, and working as the graduate student assistant for the CMHC Department. Somehow in the midst of everything else going on, I try to make time for reading, prayer, pilates, and spending time with my friends. After graduation, I am hoping to get married, become a licensed professional counselor, and work with couples, families, and individuals in both clinical and pastoral settings.
