Clinical interns are highly qualified psychotherapists-in-training who have earned a Master's Degrees in Counseling Psychology, and have spent hundreds of hours in diverse clinical experience. Following grad school, Interns, Psychologist Assistants, and Associate Marriage and Family Therapists (AMFT) spend an additional 2-6 years in continued internship training. It is during this period that they work independently with patients, attend trainings and consultation groups, and further develop their clinical skills.
The benefit of working with an intern is that you are receiving quality, professional services for a fee that is usually lower than that of a licensed therapist, while also receiving indirect support and insights from the intern's supervisor and consultation groups.
Janus Counseling Center is very committed to helping in the development and training of interns who are making progress toward licensure.
