I have been a Master’s of Marriage and Family Therapy Intern since January 2013 and could not imagine completing my internship elsewhere. In my time at Refuge, I have experienced learning, support and both personal and professional growth as I could never have imagined. The Refuge Center has and continues to provide me with an environment of support, understanding and encouragement as I walk my journey as a therapist in training. The opportunities such as working with a diverse cliental, specialized trainings, supervision and an open door policy for question asking have enabled me to acquire understanding and knowledge far beyond what I could have imagined having before even beginning my career. No matter where the road of life takes me in my journey as a Marriage and Family Therapist, The Refuge Center for Counseling has played a vital role in enabling me to feel prepared to step out on my own and has nurtured my desire to provide the highest quality services, with empathy, hope and respect to all those I come in contact with.
