Open Hearts+Open Minds
Nice to e-meet you! I'm Mili Metz.
As an adolescent and young adult, I followed my mind. I hold a dual B.A. in Psychological & Brain Sciences and Public Health, Social Sciences from The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, MD. After completing my M.A. at Teachers College, Columbia University in New York City, I did my doctoral work in Counseling Psychology at Georgia State University in Atlanta, GA. Next, I moved to Philadelphia, PA, to complete an American Psychological Association (APA) accredited clinical psychology internship and accepted an invitation to stay on an additional year for specialized fellowship focused on college counseling at the University of Pennsylvania and inpatient services at Pennsylvania Hospital.
Currently, I am the Psychology Chair at a small liberal arts university in San Marcos, CA. I followed my heart to lovely southern California in 2016 to join my husband, an active duty United States Marine. We are a family committed to service, leadership, and love of life.
As you can see, I have lived in a lot of places and I had the privilege to pursue my passion in both education and experiential learning. Along the way, I met people of all shades from all walks in various seasons of life. Some of whom I had the pleasure of connecting with personally, others I had the opportunity to serve professionally. Each and every connection I have made shapes who I am today. If I am more empathetic, intuitive, and knowledgeable it is because of my clients, colleagues, and close friends.
Long before I became an academic, I was a caring confidant, curious co-conspirator, and loyal friend. My work is a calling! I made the choice to follow my true purpose and I have never been happier. I hope we get to connect soon so I may learn more about you. I invite you to discover your true leadership potential and reach out to connect so we can collaborate on the next chapter of your life.
