Practicum Student Supervision at Country Counselling Services

Erinn provides practicum student supervision for students enrolled in a Masters level degree program, as a way to give back to the profession and work with students to find success in counselling therapy practice in a safe and structured environment. Erinn will typically take 1-2 practicum students per year. If you are enrolled in a graduate level counselling psychology program and are looking for a practicum supervisor and feel that an experience at CCS aligns with your goals for practicum supervision, please don't hesitate to access the application form and follow the submission instructions on the form.

As a client, seeing a practicum student will allow you to see a qualified professional in training, at a reduced rate. Should this be determined by Erinn & yourself to be a good fit, please know that Erinn will be consulting with the student for the duration of your treatment.

Practicum student's have completed all of the coursework requirements for their graduate-level degree, and have supervised hands-on practice as the last requirement before graduation, so you can feel confident in the level of training they bring to your sessions. Erinn will supervise sessions in multiple ways including in person or in consultation with the student after/before your session.

Please note * Due to the complexity of some reasons for counselling, not all clients will be a good fit for a student therapist*

As I embrace this journey, I am excited for the opportunity to work alongside each of you and with Erinn and her complementary practitioners, gaining insight, knowledge, and perspective. 


Having completed my Bachelor of Professional Arts in Human Services through Athabasca University in 2016 and working in the Human Services Field for 17 years, I found my passion for working with people to help themselves.   In 2019, I became a Fully Certified Child and Youth Care Counsellor with the Child and Youth Care Association of Alberta. I continued to pursue my Master of Counselling Psychology through Yorkville University, bringing me to this point in my practicum journey. I have a passion for working with people, stemming from years of working front line, and embracing various circumstances individuals find themselves.  Throughout the past 17 years, I have held multiple positions that have allowed me to work closely with families, children, and youth.  Enjoying my time working with Human Service Professionals, Front line staff, providing prevention, intervention supports, and education.  Continuing my knowledge as I complete this practicum, currently pursuing Family Mediation, and lifelong psychology. 

It will be a pleasure to work with each client and Erinn in her practice, so stop in to say hi, schedule an appointment, or email for any questions you have, as I would be more than happy to follow up.
