The services of the New Horizons Family Counseling Center are ultimately authorized and overseen by the Dean of the School of Education at The College of William & Mary. They are directly supervised by designated faculty members in the Counseling Program.
Without conscientious and dedicated student leadership and involvement, operation of the New Horizons Family Counseling Center would not be possible. Student Directors at the Center organize, oversee, and thus, make possible its day-to-day operations. They are selected on the basis of their knowledge of clinical practice, their desire and ability to lead, and their commitment to the practice of marriage and family counseling and the New Horizons mission. Student interns, practicum students, and graduate assistants provide direct family counseling services as well as all the associated administrative duties necessary to ensure that those services are appropriately planned, evaluated, and documented. They are selected on the basis of their expressed interest in marriage and family counseling, their openness to new learning and self-examination, and their commitment to New Horizons’ high standards for client and community service.
