 Testimonial from past Case Manager Acacia:

“Interning at the counseling center as a BSW student has been an enlightening learning opportunity. Supervision has been invaluable to this experience and has not only been helpful in the clinical aspect but has allowed me to grow both professionally and personally while being supported. We learn to work with clients both individually and in groups, which allow us to hone our skills as future social workers. The connections made both with staff and community members has been a great networking experience that will be helpful when entering the field. I feel honored to be a part of the team at the counseling center and I will cherish my short time here.”
