Counseling Service's staff are trained in a wide range of theoretical perspectives and models that meet the needs of the university student population. The staff at Counseling Services provide one-on-one, couples and group counseling on a wide scope of issues. The goal of Counseling Services is to provide support to students, which will help them achieve their academic and personal potential.
While completing your internship at Counseling Services you will have the opportunity to observe the different techniques that various counselors utilize. Once you have had the ability to shadow different clinicians, you will have the chance to build your own case load of students and begin gaining experience with one-on-one counseling. In addition to counseling you will have the opportunity to work on different projects or activities that are either ongoing or suggested by you. These activities or projects will enhance your experience and further your learning. Interns will also have weekly supervision with a licensed clinician, who will be monitoring their work and progress.
