Practicum Experience

looking for a clinical site that is...
strength based

HOPE Counseling is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to offering low cost therapy to our community. We have experienced, supportive supervisors to help you become the clinician you aspire to be. We don't subscribe to one theoretical model instead embrace the model that you are drawn to and that works best with your clients. 

We are looking for clinicians that want to stay long term and build a practice that teaches you the business side of therapy as well as giving you the foundation and container to make it through the exam process. We are proud of our 98% pass rate 1st time through the BBS exams for licensure. 

We have a diverse clientele that exposes you to experiences you may have only read about in class. Our commitment focuses on trainees that are working towards hours for graduation. We understand how stressful that is. If you would like to join our family of clinicians email for details. Here's what some trainees/associates have said:

"You have created a small wonder on this earth which serves as a true blessing to many in the most definite way ... you and your team foster a learning experience for new therapists matched by few others"

I want to thank Darlene for being the rock and the cornerstone of this amazing agency. You were always there for me, any time I was dealing with an unexpected CPS report, a challenging court-ordered case, or a client with suicidal ideation. You challenged me to grow and did so with compassion and encouragement but also with a firmness I needed. Susan [supervisor], thank you for your consistency and humor, as well as all your awesome interventions and sayings. I have always felt I could be transparent about my counter transferences, fears and feelings of imposter syndrome. With grace and kindness, you continued to help me grow day by day. I use so many of your tools with my clients, and I will always remember to STAY CURIOUS!!!
