Associate Counselors

Northwest Counseling Center values mentoring and guiding new professionals entering into this field.  Partnerships with various colleges and universities provide students a unique opportunity for field experience as required by counseling and social work programs.

Terese Medina, LMHC, and Roger Yoder, Ph.D, LMHC, are approved supervisors through Washington State for the supervision of associate counselors to fulfill the required hours for licensure.  Additionally, Jason Raugust, LICSW, is an approved supervisor through Washington State for associate social workers moving into counseling roles.

The opportunity for learning and growth at this practice is abundant because of the various modalities provided to clients.  Our supervisors encourage personal and professional advancement while providing the tools to be successful in private practice.
