As a second-year social work student, my choice of internship site is a crucial step in my developing career. Upon learning about the Trinity Boston Counseling Center (TBCC), I was immediately drawn to its holistic view of mental health, its mission to serve marginalized groups, and its identity in the Boston mental health community as a provider of spiritually integrated therapy. After working at the Center for only a few short months, I have already benefited greatly, thanks to the supportive and experienced staff here. TBCC offers the opportunity to students like me to translate therapeutic principles based on social justice into practice with my clients. Through its emphasis on relationships and community, TBCC has not only shaped and sharpened my professional lens and ambition, but greatly contributed to my personal sense of identity and formation.
