Not only have I been able to hone my skills as a therapist with a full client load, I have been able to participate in a number of projects that have prepared me for the work I will do as a therapist outside of sessions. I am very grateful to have had this experience."

"The student practicum program has been a wonderful addition to Alli Therapy. Not only is it fulfilling students’ clinical and supervision needs for becoming registered therapists, but is also creating greater accessibility for clients who might otherwise not be able to afford private therapy. When I was a graduate student I struggled to fill my clinical caseload. Students with Alli Therapy will not have this problem due to our team’s client outreach and regular waitlist.”
