All internships include specific job duties and expectations including providing individual therapy with a variety of adult clients, leading DBT, skills, and education groups.  We offer flexible work hours based on educational needs within the framework of providing onsite services from 8:00am to 5:00pm Monday through Friday.  Interns must complete assessment, diagnosis, treatment planning, discharge summaries, and individual and group therapy notes in the appropriate timeframe.

Caseloads are based on the intern’s availability with no more than 5 client hours per day recommended. A typical case load for a 32-hour week is 1 to 2 group therapy sessions and 14 to 18 clients. The environment is fast paced and requires the development of time management skills.
