Opportunities for Graduate Students

If you are a graduate student in a counseling program and reside within commuting distance of Westfield, NJ, I would be happy to discuss the possibility of you completing a practicum at Aware Now Counseling, LLC. This practice offers students the opportunity to gain exposure to the private practice experience as well as professional development opportunities outside of the office. Administrative tasks are limited to those associated with the practicum student managing his/her own appointments and any events or groups s/he decides to set-up. The focus is on professional preparation rather than busy-work.

Students are welcome to contact Amy Armstrong directly by emailing a resume and cover letter.
