MFT Trainee at Family Services Agency in Burbank

“The most challenging aspect of my traineeship is getting through to adolescents who are surrounded by technology and instant gratification. You need to find ways to connect with them. A lot of techniques I use to do this I learned in the Psychology program at AULA. I’ve learned to how to build rapport and really establish a relationship with clients. I feel the relationship is the fundamental building block to effective therapy, and AULA has taught me how to make that happen.”
