Student Profile(s)

Carole Yozamp, MS LPCC

"I am a staff psychotherapist in the Adolescent Unit at Clara’s House, a program of St. Cloud Hospital. The greatest gift of working with this age group is their ability to share, grow, and make change by being part of a therapeutic group. This brings me back to my cohort in the Community Counseling Program (now Clinical Mental Health Counseling) where, as a group, we learned from gifted educators that believed in us. I always felt that faculty supported my specific academic needs while encouraging my growth and development in the field of counseling.

"During my coursework, I coauthored a book with Niloufer Merchant titled “Groups in Community and Agency Settings.” In the book, Dr. Merchant provided an academic perspective to group work. My contribution was from a practitioner standpoint highlighting groups in various agency settings."
