Pros: team support
I was an intern at Pacific Clinics at the Bonita location. I would schedule intakes, conduct screenings, intakes, assessments, and develop individualized treatment plans for each client. I would conduct group counseling sessions with adolescents and adults. I learned how to implement what I learned in school with clients. I developed working relationships with other therapists and counselors. Supervisors were always there to help when needed and I would meet with the supervisor for supervision to talk about my progress. Hardest part of the job was when clients would have a negative downfall, because as a counselor you want your clients to reach success. I greatly enjoyed working with all of my clients, adolescents and adults, i find it to be a very rewarding career working as a counselor.
