Hello prospective students! It is with great pleasure that I welcome you on your journey through your search for a graduate program in Psychology!

My name is Nicole Drost and I am Doctoral student in the Clinical Psychology PsyD program here at William James College. I grew up in Bethlehem, Connecticut and attended Stonehill College in Easton, Massachusetts. At Stonehill, I received an internship at Bradley Hospital in the Intensive Program for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. In the milieu we implemented Exposure and Response therapy with patients in the partial hospitalization program. Additionally, I interned at the New England Center for Children, where we utilized Applied Behavioral Analysis with children and adolescents diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. In Connecticut, I interned with female adolescents who were in a transitional program following detention at the Connecticut Junior Republic.

I am currently enrolled in the Latino Mental Health Concentration (LMHP) and Children and Families for Adversity and Resilience (CFAR) concentration offered at William James. At William James, I received the position as Assistant Director of the Latino Mental Health Concentration and was hired as a translator of the Brenner Center. My previous practicum placement was in the Worcester Public School District and I will be at Gosnold’s Partial Hospitalization Program this coming year. In my spare time, I work part-time for ABS Behavioral Health Services and enjoy fitness.

I chose to attend William James College because of the concentrations available and the individualized attention students receive from staff. If you are interested in pursuing a career in psychology, I would love to talk to you further on my experience at William James and hear about your interests and career aspirations!
