August Fasel

(he, they)

My name is August and I am a second year Masters student in UNM's Counseling Program starting my internship here at the Treehouse. I'm actually from North Carolina, where I completed undergraduate degrees in psychology and communication, and spent a little bit of time working as a camp counselor - which really solidified my interest in working with young people. Working with campers to meet their basic needs and ensure that they could have fun while staying safe and advocating for themselves was some of the most fulfilling work I had done in my life. After moving to New Mexico in 2022 and spending a year working for the state government, I applied to UNM with no expectations, and have since had no regrets. I've learned so much about clinical counseling and been fortunate enough to meet amazing colleagues. Now, as an intern, I have the privilege of working with some amazing professionals and directly helping members of the community - and I couldn't be more excited!
