Thoughts from First Year Students:
“Attending PNW was one of the easiest choices I’ve ever had to make. Coming in, I wasn’t sure that it would be the place for me, but after meeting with the faculty and students of the program, I was sold. I knew that this was going to be the program that would make me the best therapist possible. Working with such a large diversity of clients was extremely appealing to me as well. Life at PNW so far has been even better than I anticipated. The classes are challenging, but I find myself engaged in every discussion. I connect on so many levels with everyone in my cohort. They are all truly amazing people and I can’t wait to watch us all grow in this program together.” – Lexie Unhjem
