Geoffrey Reddick (Graduate): It really just hits you that you are impacting people in the real world and they do have these struggles.
Katie Robertson (Student): The CARE Clinic is a great opportunity for the community to receive affordable counseling services, and then for the students to also really get some real-time experience in the counseling setting.
Geoffrey Reddick (Graduate): And it’s hard and it’s messy but you get to be a part of this.
Noel Johnson (Student): The practicum experience and the internship experience, it’s hugely helpful. The opportunity to get in there, jump in there, start seeing people, start meeting people, start practicing therapy.
Emma Myers (Student): People are in need of help, and so I think it’s great to have a means to provide that, especially with the guidance of someone who’s more experienced. That’s really comforting.
