What is a Resident?

A resident is a master's or doctorate level professional pursuing a higher level of education or certification. Residents at HOPE are masters-level clinicians in pursuit of state licensure. They are supervised by Sandra Massey, a Licensed Professional Counselor.


When thinking about a resident, you may consider the medical field. Chances are if you have had a medical procedure or surgery in a hospital, you have met and have probably been treated by a resident in the pathway of achieving a medical license.

Residents are closely supervised and receive mentorship through a seasoned therapist who has been licensed and well trained. They also have access to a peer supervision group of well-established therapists with varying licenses. Having this varied mentoring approach helps the resident become well rounded and well supported, offering the client quality treatment.
