Our interview dates begin in mid-December and end in early January. Applicants who are invited to interview for one of our intership positions receive an invitation to call and schedule either an on-site or Skype interview at their convenience. Our on-site interviews occur over a half-day and involve two 1-hour interview sessions with several staff members, and a 1-hour opportunity to ask the Training Director questions about the program. We provide lunch for all on-site applicants. Lunch is a time when our current interns are available to answer questions without senior staff members present. We typically extend approximately 25-30 invitations for interviews.
* Vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free meals are provided upon request.
The program provides an developmental practitioner model of training consisting of didactic training and supervised practice. The staff is multidisciplinary and theoretical orientations vary.

Areas of practice and training include individual, group, and couples/relationship counseling, intake/clinical assessment, consultation/outreach, crisis intervention, provision of clinical supervision (practicum students), and issues pertinent to professional identity development.
