For more than 20 years, Evergreen Psychotherapy Center has been accepting internship placements from nationally-respected graduate programs at the University of Colorado, University of Denver, Regis University, Colorado Christian University, University of Northern Colorado and other institutions throughout the country.
During that time, we have supervised about 120 interns as they have learned the theory, research, assessment, and practice of psychotherapy for children, adolescents, adults, couples and families, with a focus on caring for those who struggle with trauma and attachment issues. They receive receive hands-on training in the clinical skills and methods to help people achieve positive change and healing. Our goal is to equip them with the skills and confidence to go out into the real world and succeed at their jobs, no matter what setting they end up working in, whether is is a community program, school system, government agency, legal system or private practice.
Getting to know our interns is always an exciting time at Evergreen. They are enthusiastic additions to our practice who are passionate about therapy and helping people. It is a pleasure to watch them learn and grow, both professionally and personally.
I come to Evergreen Psychotherapy Center from CU Denver’s Couples and Family Therapy program. Words cannot describe how proud and honored I feel to be part of the world-renowned EPC team alongside Dr. Terry Levy. Evergreen is truly a special place, where shaky attachment bonds are fortified, and families get to finally experience the foundational work that will help them to become a connected, compassionate and collaborative unit, rather than continuing to perpetuate patterns of pain learned in early childhood. Already in my short time here, it’s been inspiring to see how the Intensive Outpatient Program can catalyze lasting change within a family dynamic. I am thrilled to be part of a field that cultivates secure attachment and profound healing, not only for families but for the individual.
I am excited to join the Evergreen Psychotherapy Center (EPC) team as a relational and family intern from the University of Colorado Denver. Having grown up in Conifer, EPC has always been my dream site to provide therapy because the center offers support to children, families, and relationships through an attachment-focused lens. Every person has a story to tell, and their story is created and influenced by their systemic surroundings which often include attachment wounds and ruptures. I’d like to think that it’s through the support from EPC that families can create a new chapter in their storybook that details secure bonds and healed wounds. I also believe in the importance of connecting mind, body, and soul, and I’m thrilled to work alongside a team that follows a holistic and integrated approach. When I’m not learning therapeutic skills from EPC, I am working toward my synergistic play therapy certification to eventually work with children and families who have experienced trauma.
I also recently joined Evergreen Psychotherapy Center from the University of Colorado Denver where I am studying relationship and family therapy. I am happy to report that I will be graduating with a Master’s in Counseling in December 2020. Dr. Levy’s holistic approach and far-reaching reputation for enacting real change within families who seek his help and expertise in attachment-related trauma, drew me to EPC for my internship. Through my work in school and at EPC, I have come to understand that treating disruptions to attachment is the key to inspiring radical healing. This is why I believe Evergreen Psychotherapy Center is a leader in the family therapy community. I hope to use my time with Dr. Levy to expand my training in attachment theory and eventually start my own practice, focusing on repairing relationships and nurturing the connections that mean the most to my clients.
