Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) Interns are pre-licensed therapists who have completed a Masters program in counseling psychology or marriage and family therapy, and are working their way through the required 3000 hours of experience before taking the licensing exam. I have completed two thirds of my hours, and I'm looking forward to moving closer to licensure while working at Stanbridge
What will you be doing here at Stanbridge?
I look forward to supporting the students and the teaching staff in creating an environment that maximizes growth and learning for all members of the Stanbridge community. I will be providing individual and group counseling to students, co-teaching social learning classes, and helping teachers develop strategies to support the individual needs of students inside the classroom.
Why would a student come visit you?
Students can come to counseling for a variety of reasons. I am here to help when students need extra support for challenges inside or outside of the classroom, if they're having difficulties with peers, when they need strategies for self-regulation or some tips to help with relaxation, or when they have something that's on their mind and they just need someone to listen!
What is one fun fact about yourself?
I have coached figure skating for more than 15 years, and I have been skating since I was 8 years old!
