Intern with Reach Counseling Center

The Internship Program at Reach Counseling Center is designed to give graduate students a unique opportunity to gain clinical experience in a non-profit, church-based community counseling center.  Our center offers therapy for children, adolescents, individuals, couples, families, and groups.

If you intern with us, you’ll experience how to integrate clinical psychodynamic modalities with faith and spiritual practices while serving a wide variety of clients. You'll learn to help clients understand how their past impacts their present, how attachment relationships from childhood impact current relationships now, and how to work with trauma and psychosomatic symptoms.

In addition to the clinical experience you'll gain as an intern, we place a high value on you, the clinician. We know how hard it is to juggle an internship plus family, job, classes, AND still have a life! To that end, our program allows you the flexibility to schedule your client hours around your schedule. (Days, evenings, weekends; online or in-person.) Our goal is to develop and equip you to be the clinician you were created to be - we encourage exploration and discovery as you work with clients and groups.

Reach Counseling Center is known for our warm and dynamic team culture. Our program provides a supportive and welcoming experience; we learn together, we cry together, and we celebrate together during the weekly group and individual supervision sessions. (Three hours a week!) We also provide training on IFS, EFT, working with personality disorders, codependence, children & adolescents, couples, a gospel-centered mental health framework, case conceptualization, treatment planning, starting your private practice, and more.
