“My internship at Wasatch Behavioral Health was awesome! I was able to work in the XCEL program, helping teens develop social and coping skills through group and individual therapy. I was also able to do individual therapy with kids and teens at the Provo Family Clinic. Through this internship and my supervision, I learned how to better meet clients where they are and to be sensitive to the needs of individuals in their unique environments. I learned so much about connecting and developing rapport with clients, while also maintaining a professional attitude.

My supervisor did so much to help me improve my clinical skills. I was able to shadow his sessions, have him sit in on sessions with me, and consult him weekly about the clients on my caseload. He also helped me gain confidence in my own clinical skills, and I left feeling much better about my abilities as a future therapist. Several other therapists at Wasatch also allowed me to shadow them. I felt so supported throughout my experience here, and it was very fulfilling to be able to work with the clients at Wasatch.”
