Experience of an Intern

I have had the privilege to be an intern at Dirigo Counseling Clinic since September. The experience has been both invigorating and challenging. As a burgeoning professional, there are many challenges that pop up. Everything is new and sometimes as a young intern it can be overwhelming to think about all the things that you have been taught in school, and how to apply them to the cases you are working with. I can honestly say as I sit here writing that I could not have had better mentors than those here at DCC. The incredible leadership and supervision of Alan Algee, as well as the environment that is created by the presence of such highly qualified and insightful colleagues, helped me to grow and develop in this field.

As I near the end of my internship, it is difficult to remember the person I was when I began. I have changed and grown so much throughout the process here, and hope to continue to learn and develop as I continue in my profession. DCC has provide me with the best start possible, and I would not trade this experience for anything else.
