Chris Panetta | MA

Graduate,  Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling*

Before coming to BGSP, I was working at a law firm, unhappy with what I was doing for a living. I signed up for an introductory course and was fascinated by the unique style of process learning that BGSP implements. I was so captivated that I decided to quit my job, enroll in the Mental Health Counseling program, and begin working in a Bachelor’s level position at a mental health agency doing community based work. The process learning, emotional understanding, and group dynamic that BGSP provides helped carry me through the green years in the mental health field and seamlessly transition into a master’s level position at the agency.


*This degree is now entitled Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling
