Success Stories


Moving Forward Professionally & Personally

“I read about the program at Seton Hill, met some of the faculty, and knew that SHU was the right choice. The program shaped me in so many ways. The example set by the faculty helped me to find a balance between professionalism and openness. In addition to the specific knowledge regarding therapy, I grew personally. I became much more effective in my interactions with others, more assertive and better able to manage conflict.”

After earning her master's at Seton Hill in 2010, she went on to pursue her Ph.D. in marriage and family therapy at the University of Akron, with a goal of opening a private practice and teaching at the university level.


An Expansive Education

“The MFT program at Seton Hill is unlike any other I came across in my search. The program is designed exquisitely to integrate deep interpersonal emotion-focused healing while learning about who the client is in the context of their family, their community, their ethnicity - all multicultural aspects of a person. We were constantly challenged to learn these aspects of ourselves as well. I knew attending this program that I would receive the absolute best and most expansive education in my field, and I was right.”

- Ashley North graduated from the Marriage and Family Therapy Program in August 2012.


A Dream Come True

“I was the first person in my family to attend a four-year college. I was the first female to receive a master’s degree. I am eternally grateful to professors Rebecca Harvey and DeMarquis Clarke for their investment in my growth and learning during my graduate studies. The MFT Program is unlike any therapy/counseling graduate program around -offering intensive group and individual supervision, and most importantly self-of-the-therapist focus which truly has helped me to embrace who I am without a façade that society often makes one feel is needed for success… I can't believe I went to school here. I did it.  As a child I dreamt of a college education and that dream has come true.”
