Update: Sepideh is currently working as a therapist for Ross Behavioral Group in Franklin, TN.

What are you doing now?

I am currently working at Centerstone as a school based therapist at an elementary school in Nashville, TN and working towards my licensure. Centerstone is one of the nation's largest not-for-profit providers of community-based behavioral health care, offering a full range of mental health services, substance abuse treatment and intellectual and developmental disabilities services.

How did UNA's Psychology program help you achieve what you have become?

UNA's Psychology program helped me gain the knowledge and motivation that I needed, as well as helping me realize what it was I wanted to do for a career.

What advice would you give students who are interested in becoming UNA Psychology majors?

My advice for students interested in becoming UNA Psychology majors is to think of some options you're interested in that you can use your Psychology degree for. Also, don't take advantage of the leniency of the professors because you will miss out on building a relationship with them and miss out on a lot of interesting and helpful information.
