Become a Clinical Therapist in Training at Health and Healing Therapy
Health and Healing Therapy is a multi-specialty group practice that 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.
The overall goal of our internship program is to enable all interns to become competent and capable of completing all the daily roles and responsibilities of a staff therapist. Thus, it can prepare you for a full-time Clinical Therapist job upon graduation!
Students will preferably begin in August or September, but we will consider January start dates as well.
About the Clinical Therapy Graduate Internship Program
Focus and Mission
Much of our clinical work focuses on helping children, teens, adults, couples, groups, and families who are dealing with anxiety, depression, trauma, ADHD, LGBTQIA+ issues, life transitions, chronic illness, and/or navigating relationship difficulties.
We encourage each intern to identify their own niche population and clinical issues they feel the most confident in treating. Though this, we allow 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.
