Hello my name is Monae Gillespie. I am a psychology major at the University of Wisconsin-Parkside. I joined a program that finds students interships abroad based on their major. The program I chose is placing me in New York and in New York I will live for 2 months and work with a group of licensed psychologist who provide therapy to the LGBT community. This organization is one of New York's top LGBT psychotherapy and training centers. They advocate for personal growth, free of traditional gender, sexual orientation or cultural bias and provide care to their clients, helping them resolve issues causing emotional distress. It is a training institute with therapists offering a broad range of therapeutic approaches, ensuring clients get the best fit for their problems. As i was told I will likely be working on a number of projects during this internship. One main project will be to organize a workshop related to therapy/counseling where they will choose the workshop topic, secure the speaker, and promote the event to our colleagues and the staff. With this program expenses come along. The program cost is $12,000 which includes housing, transportation, food, flight there and back, resume building, and staff support.
