“Being at the ETSU counseling center was an experience that I am very grateful for. I had an opportunity to gain a lot of quality experience in the field and really focus on what I needed as a clinician. I gained a lot of great relationships with the staff and other interns that really made me feel like I was in a family environment. The work that I did with students was an awesome experience and I had the chance to do group work, individual work, and get a lot of the tools I can use in my current job.”

"As an Intern at the Counseling Center, I was guided and encouraged to follow my professional interests while learning indispensable
counseling skills. Being a new intern and counselor-in-training is daunting and demanding, but my supervisor and the other professional counselors were able to provide support while also pushing me to learn new skills. Personal and professional growth is hard work, but I was able to walk away with both. By far the best internship placement a student interested in mental health counseling could ask for."
“What an amazing experience interning with the Counseling Center was for me and key to my success as a clinician! I felt like all the staff counselors cared about our education through constant supervision and intern seminar. I also think that I got a lot out of the independence that I got. I was able to really see how having a case load of my own felt, and had to learn to juggle it with the required paperwork. I also think that being able to speak to different counselors with different frameworks really helped me find my own flow as a therapist."

“My time at the Counseling Center was absolutely transformative! The support and guidance of the staff was invaluable, and I learned and grew more as a clinician than I could have imagined. With my own private practice now, I look back at my time at the Counseling Center and am so grateful for everything the experience taught me and how well it prepared me to be fully present with clients."
"Interning at the Counseling Center fully prepared me for the college counseling experience. The support, direction, and training we top notch. I still use today in practice the skills I learned from the staff. I am vbery thankful for the training from all of the staff, since each one has their own therapeutic perspective."
