Each semester Matters of the Heart allows 2-3 students at each location to join Matters of the Heart for their course requirements. Positions fill quickly, so contact us as early in your academic journey as possible to interview for an opportunity to learn with us. This also allows an opportunity for our community to receive services from a counselor in training at a significantly reduced rate.


In my supervision experience, I found there to be many different styles to teaching and mentoring. One thing I deeply longed for in the process was for more authentic connection. I have pulled from some of the different supervisors and mentors that I have trained under and created a style of mentoring and developing counselors that is similar to my approach to counseling....warm and connected.


Each month I invite supervises to my home for "Group Soup" where we break bread, learn about different treatment models and styles, and sometimes host guest speakers to create a vibrant array of learning styles. My goal for my supervisees is to be able to leave our time together feeling inspired, excited, challenged in new ways, and most of all, connected.
