Internship Programs

At the South Coast Counseling, we believe in offering students the opportunity to gain a meaningful internship experience whether it be in working one on one with clients, facilitating group therapy, and or advocating for mental health stigma reduction.

We provide the following programs:

  • Practicum Students: An internship for students that are currently in the Marriage Family & Therapy Masters program. This program is dedicated to exposing students to serve a diverse population. We provide oversight to ensure that the Practicum Student’s work at this setting meets the experience and supervision requirements, and is within the scope of practice for the profession. If we are not registered with your school, and you would like to be a part of our organization, please let us know, and we can arrange it with them.
  • Associate Therapists: This is a part-time program for recent Marriage Family & Therapy Masters program graduates with an official associate’s number looking to complete their hours. This program offers a diverse client and clinical experience. We provide intensive and extensive supervision and training to prepare associates for their profession.
  • Psychological Assistants: In this program, Psychological Assistants will have the opportunity to administer and score psychological and neuropsychological tests to clients to measure clinical factors such as intellectual functioning, presence and extent of organic involvement, personality characteristics, and psychopathology. You will be under the supervision of a licensed mental health professional who will provide intensive and extensive supervision and training to prepare Psychological Assistants for their profession.
  • Undergraduate Internships: We offer long and short term Fall, Spring & Summer internship programs for undergraduate students from all fields that satisfy University credits at our facility. By being a part of our team, you will gain skills and knowledge in a wide range of topics, which include (but not limited to), marketing & social media, operations, community outreach, administration, project management, research, and more.
