Benefits to Working with a Counseling Intern

Interns Are Up to Date on Latest Evidence-Based Theories & Techniques 

Counseling interns are students currently in Counseling Master's degree program at an accredited university. Being a student in a Counseling Master’s degree program requires daily active academic, professional, and personal development. While in their programs, counseling interns are learning the latest evidence- based modalities to address diagnoses such as depression, anxiety and relational issues.

Interns are Supervised by a Licensed Provider

Counseling interns provide counseling and therapy services under the direction and supervision of our highly trained and experienced licensed providers who have completed all the training requirements necessary to become supervisors. Counseling interns additionally have a faculty field supervisor through the accredited university for their respective counseling program. Counseling interns review and consult with their supervisors on all their counseling cases. The fact that our counseling interns are supervised by our licensed providers help ensure you receive high quality care. Additionally, if you decide to continue services with a new intern, or with another one of our providers, the supervising licensed provider will help coordinate your care during the transition.

Interns are Committed to Investing Time & Energy into Your Counseling Process

Counseling interns have devoted at least a year or more into their Counseling Master's degree program and are eager to apply the theories and modalities for which they are continually strengthening their expertise to enhance your counseling experience. Although counseling interns are still completing their counseling program, they are active in the process of strengthening their skills, which are being graciously fine-tuned through direction from supervisors and faculty. Additionally, working with counseling interns can be a uniquely refreshing experience. Being new to the field, counseling interns are in a learning mindset and filled with optimistic energy.  

Interns Help Increase Access to Counseling & Therapy Services 

In support of our mission and vision, Achieve Counseling & Wellness is proud to offer high quality counseling and therapy services with counseling interns. Counseling and therapy services provided by counseling interns helps increase access to affordable counseling and therapy services. It also helps support the development of the counseling workforce.
