Katelin Jobin, BFA
Masters in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Art Therapy, Wayne State University
As a graduate student, I have developed an integrated humanistic therapeutic approach. I aspire to foster trust in the therapeutic relationship in support of the client to become self-aware in one’s experiences, while encouraging wellness and personal growth toward goals. It is important as a helping professional to work with clients in order to develop an individualized therapy experience. My experience working with older adults and individuals living with substance use disorders has contributed greatly toward my career interests. As a counselor and art therapist in training, it is my intention to assist individuals and the community to increase quality of life, resilience in brain health across the life span, and overall experience a positive lifestyle.
As an intern at Samaritan Counseling Center, it is my responsibility to maintain professionalism, work within the scope of practice, provide a safe space to the best of my ability for client sessions, be respectful of the session, client, and content shared (i.e. client willingness to share has a direct influence on therapeutic outcomes), and adhere to the American Counseling Association code of ethics.
