Welcome to the IMPROVED Counseling Geek Site

After some heavy lifting, flexing of digital muscles, and a few headaches – I am pleased to bring you the new and refreshed site.

TCG takes a look at LucidChart

As I kick off my week of vacation (finally!) for Ski week, I wanted to get a new Vlog out to you. I started using LucidChart towards the end of last year for some scheduling documents at my site. It was handy for showing progressions, processes, or steps to take. Check out the video below for more info. Let me know what you think of LucidChart!
