Riversage Family Counseling Interns

As part of state licensure requirements, all therapists are trained in an extensive pre-graduate student internship. Riversage Family Counseling has the privilege of hosting several compassionate and competent student interns. Our student interns are selected through an interview process and commit to uphold our agency’s mission- to provide the highest quality of care with strength and compassion. With client consent, our interns and trainees provide in-session support in conjunction with a practicing clinician. Our interns, when deemed ready, may also provide independent services to in-coming clients. These services include assessment, individual counseling, couples counseling, client education, and group counseling.

  • Interns strictly adhere to ethical guidelines of the counseling profession, which are specified by the American Counseling Association Code of Ethics.
  • Interns have completed all Master’s level didactic courses in their field of study.
  • Interns have been assessed and found competent by their educational institutions to apply clinical skills by working with clients.
  • Interns attend and participate in weekly supervision with a supervising clinician where they receive intensive, ongoing guidance.

Ellie Garrison

Greetings! My name is Ellie Garrison and I am in the final phase of completing my Masters of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Grand Canyon University.

I believe that the process of change and growing awareness is a unique journey for each individual. As a counselor in training it is a privilege and joy to join with my clients in their growth. My internship process has highlighted my interest in working with both adult individuals and couples. I like to define my approach to therapy as intentional yet flexible. I come to each session prepared to explore the needs of my client with an open heart, mind, and skillful attunement. I promise to always work as hard as my clients, both in and out of the sessions. As a counselor in training I utilize motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy and Gottman couples therapy. I approach treatment with an appreciation of individuality and with careful attention to each client’s unique needs. My commitment to my clients is authenticity, acceptance, empathy, patience, flexibility, and unrelenting hope in the process of change.

Many therapists find a special interest in the counseling field, and I am no exception. My aim is to develop my skills and competency in working with couples. While all forms of therapy have their own exceptional beauty to me, I find it deeply meaningful to work with couples in enhancing their relationship’s vitality.

Mia Carrasco-Songer (She/They)

We all have the capacity to change and to grow. I look at behavior through the lens of the nervous system, because through this lens it is easier to see how choices and actions, even the ones that aren’t working out for us, come from our body and brain trying to keep us safe and meet our needs. With that understanding we can find new behaviors that address the root cause and create real healing.

I am a 2nd-year graduate student getting my Master’s in Social Work. I have training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness. I am primarily influenced by body-based theories like polyvagal theory and post-traumatic growth somatic therapy.

I worked for the past 3 years in wilderness therapy supporting adolescents experiencing acute anxiety, anger, depression, self-esteem issues, and relational struggles. I help people find their strengths, learn new tools, and increase their resiliency. I also worked with families to support improved communication, emotional awareness, and self-regulation to create more connection and stronger relationships.

I am passionate about creating community. I believe that our strengths and struggles arise from the interaction between our internal world and our relationships with the people, systems, and environment around us. We are interdependent and our personal healing and collective healing are inherently intertwined. Before entering the world of therapy, I worked for many years with community gardens where food and a collective purpose brought us together at the intersection of physical health, mental health, environmental health, and community.

I work with LGBTQ+ experiences around sexuality and gender identity. And I work from a social justice perspective that includes an ongoing journey with anti-racist practices.

In my spare time you can find me mountain biking, swimming in the river, gardening, reading speculative fiction, cooking, or playing with my dog.
