Doreen Alling, HETI Intern

Doreen is currently an MSW intern in her final semester and at HETI where she has been working to incorporate an client-centered counseling style for eliciting behavior change into her work. She began working with Stephen Andrew in the summer of 2019 when she took Motivational Interviewing (MI) as a clinical elective at the University of Southern Maine. During her foundation year internship working with women with eating disorders in a residential setting, she also completed a year-long group practicum with Stephen. This was the beginning of incorporating the spirit of MI into her life-long passion of bringing compassionate conversation to her work with people with eating disorders and with those who care for them. Doreen is a life-long learner and is working closely with Stephen through coaching, supervision, and practicing individual conversations with people in this final semester of her clinical internship.It is her passion to learn and later bring the healing of MI to people with eating disorders directly and to them through their carers.
