My name is Nicole and I am a first-year intern at Life Skills Treatment Program. It is also my first year in a PsyD program. I currently attend Alliant International University in Los Angeles. Life Skills has provided me with the opportunity to work with a diverse group of clients, and has allowed me to grow professionally and personally to prepare me for a future career as a clinical psychologist.
Before becoming an intern at Life Skills, I was an elementary school teacher for six years for various age groups. Although I had an interest in this career, my real passion is psychology. I have my bachelor’s degree in Liberal Studies and a M.A. in Educational Technology. My future goals as a future psychologist is to have my own private practice and work with children, adolescents, and adults. As a former elementary school teacher, Life Skills has provided me with the opportunity to work with adults in a clinical setting. I love that Life Skills treats you like family. Everyone works together and the clients love coming to sessions at Life Skills.
