Student Spotlight: Stephanie Beauvil, Clinical Psychology PsyD Program

I’m a second-year advanced standing student in the Clinical PsyD Program. I completed my master's degree at WJC, with an emphasis on Forensic and Correctional Counseling. My plan is to continue my education with a focus on African and Caribbean Mental Health.

I chose William James College for its smaller class sizes, strong emphasis on field experience, and helpful resources such as the ARC that helped me manage my course load as a first-generation student. The invaluable mentorship and sense of community that I found through programs like the Black Mental Health Graduate Academy, as well as the open-door policy of numerous professors, convinced me to continue my education at WJC.

I am proud to have been selected to receive a fellowship award from the Coalition of Racial Equity in Mental Health (CORE), a supportive partner of the College's Black Mental Health Graduate Academy. As a Fellow, I’ll participate in building professional networks and receive guidance on navigating predominantly White workplaces as I enter the field.

My primary goal is to contribute to the betterment of the world by helping others build a toolbox of coping skills that can manage life’s challenges. I aspire to become a professor someday and offer mentorship to others, just as I was once mentored.
