April is National Counseling Awareness Month

| By Stacy Alameda


We join with  American Counseling Association (ACA), in celebrating April as Counseling Awareness Month to advocate for the profession and honor the hard work and effort counselors give to those they serve. By focusing on the positive impact counselors have on both personal well-being and overall community health, we also seek to encourage anyone who may need assistance to seek help.

At Casa de la Luz our bereavement program is led by professional bereavement counselors.  All groups and private sessions are open to the public – regardless of whether your loved one was cared for by our hospice program or not – and are FREE of charge.  Casa honors and celebrates our team of dedicated counselors and all they do to provide bereavement support and superior care to those whose loved ones have died as they seek guidance, reassurance and at times simply a listening ear.

 This year’s Counseling Awareness theme- Encouraging Counselors to #BURNBRIGHTNOTOUT is a nod to the awareness that those who have dedicated their lives to ensuring others take care of themselves, also must find time to do the same. When counselors get the self-care they need, they burn brighter, reach higher and last longer. Help Casa celebrate counselors and encourage them to #BurnBrightNotOut by following us on Facebook and LinkedIn.
