      Renee Kremhelmer
      B.A. Psychology, 2011
    • Personal Statement
      As an individual with a mother diagnosed with bipolar disorder I have been raised surrounded by professionals within the field as well as experienced the roller-coaster that mental illness can often derive. Assisting my mother, now as an adult, through her disorder and being involved in her treatment and care grants me insight into the challenges and feelings individuals suffering from mental illness encounter. As a daughter of a bipolar woman I understand the effects this disorder can have on others within the family. As a developing student of the field I am beginning to understand how the theories and practices of therapy can assist individuals experiencing these challenges.
      Learning to apply those theories and practices is the next step in my journey. The achievement of a Master’s degree as well as a Psy.D. will be the method to achieving that step in my journey. The lessons which will be garnered along this journey are the parts I am looking forward to most. Onward and upward!

      The culmination of the past four years of earning this Bachelor’s degree has been an exhilarating one. The self-motivation required to maintain a strong academic standing within the online learning environment has shown me that I am more than capable of achieving academic and professional success. My time at Argosy has also improved and honed my writing and communication skills. The curriculum, professors, and my peers pushed and encouraged me to continuously strive to expand upon my critical thinking and analytical skills as well.
      There is much I am proud of accomplishing during my time at Argosy University. Academic and personal success which have prepared me to continue to pursue my goal to become a Counseling Psychologist. Entering graduate school and securing employment within the field to garner experience and broaden my learning experiences are my immediate goals.
