Welcome to the official blog of Main Street Counseling! My name is Justin Kahn, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and the owner of Main Street Counseling. Let me tell you a little about myself before I explain the purpose and vision of my blogs.
I graduated from The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and a Master’s Degree in School Counseling. In addition to being a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), I am also a National Certified Counselor (NCC), Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS), and Student Assistance Counselor (SAC). I have over 12 years of experience working as a SAC and School Counselor, and I have also supervised several Licensed Associate Counselors (LACs) who were pursuing their LPC and have helped many start and grow their own private counseling practices.
I am usually the last to follow the lead when it comes to technology but thought it was finally time to jump on the blog bandwagon. I figured a blog would be an effective way of sharing my thoughts and experiences with people on a larger scale. My goal is to help break through the barriers of the stigma around mental health and to inform readers of strategies for self-care and how to develop and maintain relationships, as I believe both are crucial to sustaining a stronger mental health. We need to be able to let down our guard and talk about the challenges of life together so that we have the support from one another to help face and overcome these challenges.
Each post, I will write about a particular topic related to mental health. Feel free to comment below.
