    What is a counseling intern?

    An intern therapist is one who is still in the process of graduate school. They generally have taken most, if not all, of their classes and are ready to put their knowledge to use. Typically, these interns will have at least two different fully licensed therapists that act as a mentor and teacher for them during the process.

    As an intern, they receive a lot of supervision. This means there is a licensed professional (or two or more) who are regularly hearing about their work, witnessing their work, and providing feedback and suggestions. All of this and it allows us to offer more affordable therapy options.
