Teaching and practicing compassionate
mental health care.
I have been a Naropa University internship coordinator for over 5 years and have witnessed students do internships at Maria Droste Counseling Center for more than a decade. Interns receive superb supervision. They benefit from the chance to work with adults, families and children, and they gain tremendous skills when they collaborate with the excellent team of colleagues and superiors that Maria Droste creates. It is a unique opportunity to utilize what they learned in their programs, see how others work and find their own way of counseling. I regularly tell potential interns that if they are able to secure an internship at Maria Droste, they will develop their skills and contribute to people in a meaningful way. I believe it whole-heartedly. Internship coordinators are grateful for the good work provided by the sound structure of Maria Droste.
