"I graduated from the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program where I was able to learn theoretical concepts and how to apply them to clinical practice. I liked how I was able to build relationships with peers who I know I will keep in touch with and consult. The program consistently made sure to put self-care for students and staff first. The atmosphere encouraged learning, collaboration, and case consultation. I was able to receive advice and support from professors in a timely manner whenever I needed it. The constant support from everyone involved helped me feel confident and prepared for the National Counselor Examination. The program offered numerous resources for students ranging from a flexible class load to helping with internship placements. By providing a wide array of experiences such as crisis assessment, I was prepared for my career as a school-based therapist for Nationwide Children’s Hospital. I cannot speak highly enough about this program because it has helped me grow as a person and as a clinician."
