Registered Mental Health Counseling Intern

Christel Mamaril

My main goal in therapy is to increase the clients’ self-awareness and self-acceptance so that they can fulfill their full potential. I also believe that present moment awareness and acceptance of emotions and thoughts can help regulate behaviors.

I believe that people have innate strengths that empower them to thrive in life. I also believe that individuals have the capacity to grow and better themselves. My main goal in therapy is to increase the clients’ self-awareness and self-acceptance so that they can fulfill their full potential. I also believe that present moment awareness and acceptance of emotions and thoughts can help regulate behaviors. I consider each client to be unique and customize each session depending on what’s best for the client.

Life is full of adjustments and transitions. My desire is to help people with the transitions in their lives and accompany them in their journey towards change. I graduated from Rollins with a Masters’s degree in Clinical Mental Health in 2020. Also, having my internship at Rollins College has given me the opportunity to work with a wide range of issues such as grief, cultural adjustment issues, anxiety, depression, acute/chronic trauma, crisis management, and substance use.

I also earned a Master’s degree in Sport Psychology. As an athlete, I understand the importance of the mental game and its impact on how an athlete performs their sport. My previous work experience includes working with professional golfers in the Philippines with regard to the mental aspects of their sport (e.g., confidence). This includes the implementation of biofeedback and mindfulness-based stress reduction techniques (e.g., grounding and relaxation techniques). I have also worked with the Philippine National Women’s Ice hockey team with topics such as team cohesion, confidence and mindfulness.

I have first-hand experience with the issues that exchange students experience and speak Tagalong.

I’m Tux! I’m a wonderful golden doodle. John & Chantel picked me out of a litter of 10! Can you believe my mom had 10 puppies? I must admit, I was the best of them all (everyone thinks so). I overheard (because I was trying to hear) Chantel tell the practice therapists that when she...
