Do you want to work one-on-one with people to improve their lives? Are you already in a career that lets you do this? Each of our departments: Department of Leadership and Management; Department of Mind-Body Medicine; Department of Integrative and Functional NutritionDepartment of Counseling; and Department of Humanistic and Clinical Psychology offers programs to provide the skills and professional training you need or enhance those you already have.

For example, Saybrook Psychology graduate Mary Madrigal runs her own case management company – specializing in the cases of mentally ill people that no one else wants to touch. She wanted to advance her clinical career and liked that she could study for her Master's while still working.

"My career has grown as much as I hoped for, and more – but I've grown as a person too, in ways I never expected. The professors challenged us to look at patients as people – to look past their symptoms and think of them, not as a disease, but as people. That changed everything." —Mary Madrigal

Here are just a few of the types of careers our programs support if you want to work with individuals.

  • Executive, life, or heath and wellness coach
  • Human resources professional
  • Clinical psychologist

Saybrook graduates are pursuing successful and satisfying professional livelihoods in these and many other careers.

Saybrook Mind-Body Medicine alumna Marisa Lacobucci found that her Master's degree coursework made an impact on her own Fibromyalgia (FM) symptoms, a realization that led her to want to help others with FM. Marisa researched and experimented with alternative modalities and their effects on her own condition.

" I was inspired to share my knowledge with others and help them find new ways to cope with and lessen the symptoms of Fibromyalgia." —Marisa Lacobucci
