Introducing HopeWay's Interns for the 2018-2019 Semester

October 15, 2018

Intern Responsibilities 

HopeWay welcomed its second class of interns in August of this year. The internship begins with a month of shadowing the admissions department, integrative therapy groups, CBT and DBT group sessions, private & family sessions, and discharge appointments. They essentially get a bird's eye view of a client's experience at HopeWay from beginning to end. After the observation period, interns co-lead group sessions and manage a small case-load of clients with strong supervision. 

Meet HopeWay's Interns 

Victoria Brewer earned her Bachelors in Psychology from Clemson University, and is working towards her Masters in Clinical Mental Health from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNCC). Last spring she completed a practicum at the Veteran Center at CPCC, where she focused on grief, loss and crisis work. Victoria is HopeWay's first LPC Counseling intern - others have focused on social work. 


Anna Malles received her Bachelors in Biology from Birmingham Southern College, and is pursuing a Masters in Social Work from UNCC. She completed her practicum at the Salvation Army last year, where she realized that an added mental health component would address many of the population's issues in a lasting way. She views her internship as a chance to build experience in integrated care. 


Amy Seitlin is a second-year graduate student in the department of Creative Arts Therapy at the Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. She earned her Bachelors in Psychology and Masters in Educational Psychology from UNC Chapel Hill, and her MEd in Early Childhood Education from Towson University. Amy is currently working towards her Masters in Art Therapy & Creativity Development. Since Art Therapy is still a relatively rare practice in North Carolina, Amy plans to continue her work in Charlotte after graduation, hoping to provide increased opportunities for people in the community to participate in this unique therapy.
