As of August, 2015 I am now back in New York City. I used to live here, specifically in Queens but now I'm living in Brooklyn. I missed you NYC!
While in North Carolina I did a lot of great things including running my own counseling practice for two years and teaching at a high school. In NY I'll be shifting my focus a little to more technology and digital media work and setting up a coaching practice vs a counseling practice. (More on that later.)
Charlotte, NC was great, I have few complaints but there is something about living in a big city that makes you feel like almost anything is within your reach. I don't mean that it is empowering but that everything is here, in some form. Anything you want to see or learn, is accessible here. Even if there is someone you want to see in person, such as an author or a performer, chances are that that person will pass through here at some point.
It's expensive and it's loud... but I missed it.
