Training Opportunities

We are not accepting practicum or internship applications for the 2024-2025 academic year.

We offer practicum, internship, and postdoctoral fellowship training placements. Practicum and internship placements are open to graduate students in counseling, social work, and psychology. The postdoctoral fellowship position is open to applicants with a completed doctoral degree in counseling or clinical psychology.  Practicum and internship students receive a modest stipend each semester.  Postdoctoral fellows receive a salary, benefits, and financial assistance for professional development activities.

Trainees are exposed to a range of theoretical orientations and clinical practices through weekly meetings and consultations with permanent staff. Each trainee receives one hour of individual supervision and one hour of group supervision/case conference each week.  Additionally, there is a weekly one-hour seminar focusing on skill development, recent research, and emerging topics in college student mental health.  We work with trainees to develop a training plan that meets their individual needs and the requirements of their academic program.

Clinical activities include:

  • Initial/Intake assessment
  • Treatment planning
  • Individual counseling
  • Group counseling
  • Outreach
  • Psychoeducational groups
  • Consultation and referral

We do not have a required “house theory” of clinical practice.  However, trainees favoring or having experience with CBT, ACT, DBT, Interpersonal, and/or Solution Focused approaches may feel particularly at home
