- [00:00:03.651]We'll start by maybe just checking in
- [00:00:05.123]about field placement.
- [00:00:07.523]I teach beginning practicum students.
- [00:00:10.115]It's been a really great opportunity for me to teach
- [00:00:12.184]because my long-term goals are to be a faculty member
- [00:00:15.128]at a research university, so having the ability to learn
- [00:00:20.317]how to teach and facilitate learning to students
- [00:00:25.053]has been a really important skill for me to develop.
- [00:00:28.381]I'm also clinic director.
- [00:00:30.301]This clinic on campus is unique because we not only
- [00:00:33.672]see UNL students, faculty, and staff here,
- [00:00:37.896]but we also see community clients,
- [00:00:39.875]so we get people of all ages, of all backgrounds,
- [00:00:44.296]which is a really wonderful opportunity.
- [00:00:47.065]The very last part of my PhD program
- [00:00:49.756]in counseling psychology is an internship program.
- [00:00:53.363]What we go through is a national match process,
- [00:00:57.309]and so I ended up matching with the University of Utah
- [00:01:01.191]in Salt Lake City in their college counseling center
- [00:01:04.648]to really better hone my counseling and clinical skills
- [00:01:08.147]as well as help me become a more independent clinician.
- [00:01:13.181]On campus, I don't know.
- [00:01:14.867]The counseling psychology program here at UNL
- [00:01:17.213]was a wonderful fit for me.
- [00:01:19.325]Our program here is known for being
- [00:01:21.971]a really team-oriented program, which has helped me grow
- [00:01:26.604]as both a clinician and a researcher.
