I work now as a psychological counselor for Counseling and Psychological Services at Haverford College in Haverford, PA, outside of Philadelphia (https://www.haverford.edu/counseling-psychological-services/contact). I also work in independent practice. I love what I do. Rarely are there dull days. Philly is also a beautiful city.
I believe my training at JMU was essential in my development as a clinician. The program's emphasis on self-reflection and the multiple aspects of professional psychology were second to none. I really appreciated seeing the different ways I could practice psychology while also seeing the connection between different orientations. I get teased by colleagues about being integrative, but I cannot think of a better way to describe how I see cases. The C-I program helped me recognize the effects systems have on one's functioning and how a psychologist can intervene. I really value the combined-integrated perspective and utilize it when working in psychotherapy.
