Practicum Clinical Counseling Helen Gordon Community Counseling Clinic
I was fortunate to have the opportunity to apply my counseling and supervision skills at Helen Gordon Community Counseling Clinic. These experiences allowed me to gain a deeper understanding of theories in practice, to establish therapeutic alliance in order to affect change, and to provide constructive feedback and supervision to my peers.
For two university quarters, I counseled three clients in 50 minute sessions weekly. During this time, I was supervised by two graduate peers and a Licensed Professional Counselor, Dr. Susan Halverson-Westerberg.
For the next two terms, I supervised the counseling work of two graduate peers who were practicing their counseling skills with clients in the community.
