What Our Interns Have to Say

"As a holistic counseling student intern at The Holistic Heart my experience was incredibly fulfilling. I felt like a valuable member of the team and was supported every step of the way. I gained clarity on my unique counselor identity, honed my therapeutic skills, had the opportunity to facilitate groups, and developed a deeper understanding of the interconnectedness of mind, body, and spirit in the healing process. I will look back on this experience fondly, and with gratitude."
