This past weekend I graduated with my PsyD in Couple and Family Therapy and officially celebrated becoming Doctor Rebecca Bokoch. I am still feeling so full of joy, pride, gratitude, and empowerment. I am so proud of the hard work that I have done the past five years in this doctoral program, and for completing my dissertation, entitled: "Acceptability, feasibility, and effectiveness of a mindfulness-based art therapy group curriculum on child mental health outcomes in a school-based setting: A program evaluation." I am so excited to continue to use this knowledge, training, and experience to better serve the mental health needs of individuals, children, families, and communities.
In addition, I am so thankful for the support of my family, friends, peers, professors, and mentors. I also want to say thank you to my clients, for sharing your lives with me and inspiring me in my work every day!
