Masters Level Intern 

Lewis University

Ari says, "when I was a kid, I dreamed of a career where I could make a big impact on people's lives. As a training professional, my goal is now also to have as many lives as possible impact mine. Through empathy, compassion, and evidence-based practices, I get the honor to learn with clients about how to best be their support. Like many people in the helping field, I strive to be a therapist that is inviting to individuals and offers a safe emotional space. I hope to give people the opportunity to do the most human thing of all - heal. Whether you are healing from hurt, loss, or negative life experiences, I want to be someone with whom you can safely feel your emotions. I enjoy working with people from different backgrounds and with a variety of needs. I am grateful to be here and in this line of work, to learn about and from you, and to form authentic connections to help others grow and heal."

Beth says: "Everyone has a story. It is through those shared stories that we can find our own empowerment. Recalling challenging times can help you to identify your own potential, strength, and determination. As an MSW intern with experience in client-centered therapy, my aim is provide authenticity, empathy, and compassion, fostering a safe space for your vulnerability. I approach therapy from a client-centered, trauma-informed perspective, integrating diverse, evidence based, therapeutic methods. My goal is to empower you in enhancing both your self-connection and relationships. In our sessions, collaboration and nonjudgmental support are central. I strive to create an environment where you feel deeply understood, accepted, and safe to explore."

Lauren says: "I have always had a passion for helping others, no matter the size of the impact. I knew that taking a small step could make a big difference. As I gather more experience within the field I am reminded daily that the work that we contribute to society is extremely helpful to many individuals and different aspects of their lives. I aspire to help and guide others throughout their journey. Throughout my past internship, working with high school students has been a wonderful experience that has taught me how to advocate for individuals that come from various and different backgrounds. I would love to create a safe and welcoming environment for all, especially those who may feel hesitant in seeking help. I eagerly anticipate the opportunity to meet each and every one of you and grow from our interactions!"

Masters Level Intern 

Aurora University

Michelle says: "I believe therapy is a tool for clients to feel empowered, supported, and encouraged during their life course. Clients are the experts of their own lives, and I am here to give you undivided attention and support to navigate life's many complications and journeys. My goal is to provide a safe space for clients to talk freely about their experiences. I believe that everything we need is here, and clients can feel empowered to notice the strengths within themselves, as well as support from myself to learn the strengths within their community. I love working with people who are navigating changes, identity, and racial and sexual orientation stressors throughout life. I aim to provide a space for healing and intentional care."
