Clinical Therapy Graduate Internship Opportunities
Becoming a Clinical Therapist in Training
Health and Healing Therapy offers graduate internship opportunities for students who are earning their Master’s in Social Work, Community Counseling, Clinical Counseling, Counseling Psychology, or in a related field.
Our Focus and Mission
We are a multi-specialty group practice which provides counseling and therapy services that focus on helping children, teens, adults, couples, and families Grow, Heal, and Thrive.
Much of our clinical work focuses on helping children, teens, adults, couples, groups, and families who are dealing with anxiety, depression, trauma, life transitions, chronic illness, and navigating relationship difficulties. However, each therapist is encouraged to identify their own niche population and clinical issues that they feel the most confident in treating, allowing them to do their best work.
Our team is multicultural and inclusive. We strive to help our community members identify what and who they value so they can create and live the life they want.
Clinical Training Opportunity
Health and Healing Therapy is committed to providing excellent clinical supervision and experience of clinical therapy as well as group co-facilitation opportunities. Our clinical team is passionate about the work we do and provides an atmosphere filled with support, continual growth opportunities, and personal and professional wellbeing.
Interns have the opportunity to work with different populations based on clinical interest, prior clinical training, field-related work experience, coursework completion, and practice need.
All graduate interns will:
- Receive and participate in clinical supervision 1-2 times per week
- Attend and participate in our twice-a-month group consultation meetings
- Will attend and participate in ongoing offered and required clinical trainings
- Be encouraged to explore their niche through additional clinical experience and clinical training
- Connect with a key staff clinician who will serve as a supportive mentor
Roles and Responsibilities
Under the direct supervision of an LCSW and/or LCPC, the intern will learn to complete clinical screenings, comprehensive assessments, diagnostic impressions, case management services, and individual therapy sessions as well as co-facilitate skills-based or process groups. In addition, interns will complete all necessary and appropriate documentation, including mental status exams, narrative and diagnostic summaries, treatment plans, progress notes, group notes, case management notes, and discharge summaries. The overall goal is that all interns will become competent and capable of completing all the daily roles and responsibilities of a staff therapist.
