Brief description of the typical work day for an intern at this training site Interns will have approximately 22 face to face client hours per week. One day per week will be an assessment day, either in clinic or an individual case. The intern will arrive in time to help set up and confer with the team about the clinic plan. The day will end with a group supervision session (90-120 minutes) discussing the cases and formulating diagnoses and initial recommendations. The rest of the week will be a combination of therapy hours and training hours, including didactics and supervision. The work days primarily consist of business hours (8-5 or 9-6). Some interns may elect to lead groups which occur later in the day, though a licensed psychologist must be on site. Some interns may require additional time for report writing during the steeper portion of the learning curve, which may result in extra hours.

Program Description

Description of Facility and Training Program


Northwest Neurobehavioral Health, LLC is a multidisciplinary clinic in Meridian, ID (a suburb of Boise).  We serve a wide range of individuals from a very extended geographical range.  Our reputation in the community is predominantly for work with neurodiverse individuals and their families (people with autism spectrum disorders, neurological conditions, etc.). However, we are a generalist practice and see individuals dealing with depression, anxiety, mood disorders, behavior disorders, OCD, etc. Full-time practitioners typically have their own offices and are supported by a full administrative staff.  Psychology staff include psychologists, neuropsychologists, and licensed clinical social workers.  Our multidisciplinary clinic also offers medication management, occupational therapy, and speech/language therapy services. Idaho Business Review reported in July 2020 that NNH is the 2nd largest independent outpatient clinic in Idaho by number of licensed clinicians.

The primary purpose of the Internship in Health Service Psychology at NNH is to provide both breadth and depth of training via exposure to and immersion in a variety of clinical experiences.  Interns will receive training and clinical experience in a broad array of treatments and assessments and will work with many fellow professionals in the field. An individual supervisor will remain consistent throughout the year. Interns will receive rotating secondary individual supervision, will participate in group supervision, and group didactics weekly. This provides exposure to a variety of approaches and theoretical orientations. Interns are expected to conduct individual and family therapy, individual psychological assessment, and to participate as a member of the team in multidisciplinary diagnostic assessment clinics. Exposure to an array of evidence-based treatment modalities for specific conditions such as autism spectrum disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, trichotillomania, etc. will be part of the training.  Interns will also participate in program development, and will present capstone education trainings to the staff on a clinical topic of their choosing. Elective opportunities are also available for exposure to group psychotherapy, participating in research, and community outreach.


NNH has completed the Accreditation Readiness Program and submitted our self-study to the APA Committee on Accreditation. As of 11/27/2023 we have been authorized for a site visit. We cannot guarantee that the site visit will occur by a certain date and cannot guarantee accreditation. Updates to this listing will be made as information becomes available.
