Dawning Phoenix is pleased to announce the addition of an intern joining us this summer! Committed to offering accessible and affordable counseling, we achieve this goal by providing qualified interns meeting rigorous standards. Our newest intern, Darius Washington, will begin seeing clients the week of May 13, 2019. Darius is pursuing his Master of Science in Clinical Counseling Psychology at Brenau University. He is from Norfolk, VA and relocated to Gainesville for the sole purpose of earning a degree and then attaining his professional counseling license. He earned his Bachelors of the Arts in Sociology with a concentration in Criminal Justice from Shaw University in Raleigh, NC. Being multi-modal in his theoretical orientation, he leans toward a holistic person-centered approach. This approach focuses on the client’s current understanding of their presenting concerns and empowerment. His passions include community service, outreach, competency intervention, and dedicated service to at-risk youth populations. His professional experience includes 3 years of developmental therapy and developmental disability consumer management and advocacy from various professional organizations. He plans on operating a private practice dedicated to serving individuals with severe mental illness and underserved populations.
We are excited to offer counseling services with Darius.
