Intern Testimonials

Master Level Internship:

“Seasons Center provides a progressive learning opportunity that starts with observations in practicum and builds confidence until you are ready to have your own clients during internship. Working alongside other professionals with many specialties provides interns so many chances to grow. I am grateful for the constant supervision and feedback, the wide variety of therapists and clients, and the clear expectations given to interns.” ~ Clinical Mental Health Counseling Intern

Bachelor Level Internship:

“Internship was fun, enjoyable, and memorable. Throughout my experience at Camp Autumn, I learned how to effectively manage emotion and behaviors of kiddos with mental health needs while providing them space to have fun, meet new friends and enjoy the many activities provided throughout the summer. Camp provided me the opportunity to learn the true struggle many have and understand how important my role as a counselor is in the lives of others. Embracing laughter, learning how to communicate thoughts and feelings, managing behavior, strengthening social skills, and assisting others in learning how to control symptoms of their mental health was rewarding. Knowing that I could make a difference in someone’s life was impactful. This internship opportunity also allowed me to help others recognize their worth and abilities, guide them in overcoming struggles, and expand my knowledge of mental health.”
