Create Change, LLC is Celebrating it’s 10th Anniversary
Create Change, LLC is celebrating it’s 10th Anniversary this year. In thinking of Independence Day, I remember the beginning of my entry into the world of private practice in 2007 after 20 years in the medical field. It was difficult to put all my fears aside and move forward into a venture that called to my heart. I began providing counseling and business consulting/training services to individuals, couples and businesses. Since it’s inception I have relocated to Portland, Oregon and now am inspiring others to join in the joyful transition to independence. In August, Create Change will have grown to a staff of five brave women who will have transitioned into following their hearts to provide services to others in their unique way. Megan Baldwin initially transitioned from her many positions in the medical field to manage the accounts and client flow at Create Change. Mary Cross, ACSW has transitioned from 14 years as a hospice social worker to provide mediation and counseling services to couples and individuals in the areas of depression, anxiety, relationship conflict and grief. Milar Moore, PMHNP, has transitioned from primary care to provide counseling in conjunction with medication management in the areas of ADHD, PTSD, anxiety and psychosis. Milar is also following her dream to provide in home services to clients in need. In August, Joan Ayala, ACSW, CDAC III, will be transitioning from agency work to following her passion of dual diagnosis counseling, forensic evaluations, recovery group work and training therapists to work with addiction issues. I am excited to witness the growth over the next 10 years and thank you all for your support thus far and as me move into the future.
