The Marymount University Counseling Center is a multidisciplinary mental health agency with a professional staff of licensed psychologists, professional counselors, and licensed clinical social workers. The theoretical orientation of Center staff is primarily cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic, depending upon client needs. Individual counseling is time-limited: students are allotted 12 to 15 counseling sessions within an academic year.
The mission of the Marymount University Counseling Center is to support the healthy academic, emotional, and social growth of Marymount University undergraduate and graduate students. The Center provides assessment, short-term individual and group counseling, crisis intervention, consultation services, and outreach activities to the University community.
Marymount University is a Roman Catholic-affiliated institution of approximately 3,600 students, located in Arlington, Virginia. Approximately 900 students reside on campus, and 1,200 are graduate students. The student population is very diverse, with approximately 70% female students and 50% students of color and/or international status.
For those seeking a graduate training program, this placement is a wonderful opportunity to hone individual and group counseling skills and learn more about providing a broad array of treatment and services to a university campus population.
