New Beginnings Counseling Center is excited to announce the selection of Jenn Paul as its new clinical director.

Paul earned a bachelor’s degree from the University of Arizona, Tucson and a master’s in clinical psychology from Antioch University, Santa Barbara.

Paul brings with her many years of counseling experience, having worked in a wide variety of mental health settings including Phoenix of Santa Barbara, Family Service Agency, the Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse and Trauma Resource Institute of Los Angeles, as well as in public elementary and junior high schools.

She has worked for several nonprofits, providing clinical supervision for marriage and family therapist interns.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
