Scotlyn Manson, BA (she/her): Counseling Intern

Meet Scotlyn

Hi! I’m Scotlyn. My goal as an intern therapist is to provide you with a space to feel heard, to talk through the things you want to work through in your life, and to develop an environment for the growth you want to see. I believe my role is to support you in growing in the ways that you want and to provide you with a space to develop goals, process experiences, and increase your awareness of yourself and your needs. As an athlete, I believe in the connection between mind and body and that your body can hold onto things that you’ve experienced and moving your body, in whatever way is accessible to you, is beneficial for mental health.

I am in my final year as a master’s level candidate in the University of Colorado, Denver Clinical Mental Health Counseling program. At Embrace Strength, I am supervised by Catherine S. Tilford, MA, NCC, LPC, CEDS. I understand that therapy can look different for each client and utilize multiple therapeutic approaches based on what would best suit each individual’s needs. I implement a narrative, client-centered approach in all therapy sessions. I have completed two years of classwork and four months of clinical practicum where I learned about and counseled using a range of theoretical approaches, trauma responses, and treatment planning. I am also nearing completion of certifications by The Green Cross as a Compassion Fatigue Educator, Compassion Fatigue Therapist, and Field Traumatologist.

Now, a little about me outside of work! I have a Siamese cat named Margaret Scratcher. I was a college volleyball athlete who experienced injury and stress but still enjoy playing recreationally.  I also enjoy working out, hiking with friends in the mountains, reading, traveling, watching movies and crocheting.
