Listen to episode 45 of 51 here
They say overnight success takes about 20 years, you feel me?
My newest guest, Dr. Nita Vallens has that 2o years of experience as a Therapist; so we can only expect awesomeness to radiate from her regarding human behaviour and relationship advice.
She began her career in the corporate sector, poor thing.
She acquired a piece of paper along the way that said she was a career counsellor.
I’m pretty much just ripping from her website bio as I write this at my local, The Fat Dog in Noho, but that’s because she has done so much cool and important work.
Try the Craftsman Hefeweizen btw, it removes the stress.
Dr. Nita, whom I will simply refer to as the Doctor from now on, specialises in removing stress from the lives of people, especially those with addictions.
The Doctor has managed career development programs, helped create a structure for employee chemical dependency treatment, as well as an educational process for all employees to learn about chemical dependency.
And if that wasn’t enough for you, The Doctor went and got herself certified in hypnosis and became licensed as a Marriage Family Therapist (MFT) over a decade ago.
Whatever keeps you off the streets, right?
Nowadays Nita, sorry, The Doctor runs a private practice in LA.
She has worked in mental health centres and private agencies around relationships and intimacy, life transition, addiction and co-dependency.
It doesn’t end there.
Doctor Nita is a licensed psychotherapist with a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Cal-Southern University, a Master of Arts Degree in Marriage, Family and Child Therapy from Phillips Graduate Institute, and a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from California State University, Northridge, California.
Ok, I think we are done with the copying and pasting.
Actually, we are nowhere near done.
If you were there before I started recording the audio with Dr. Nita, you would have heard a story of how her doctorate thesis came to be and you would have heard one of those conversations about dreams.
This is where I get all excited, because I love dreams, in fact Dr. Nita has inspired me for my next blog project once this one is complete in another six guests time.
I think it’s going to be centred around about dreams, interpretation and dream journalling.
Thanks Dr. Nita.
You’ve helped yet another soul.
You can listen in to Dr. Nita’s weekly radio show, Inner Voice here.
