Masters Level Intern

If you are wondering about the benefits of receiving counseling from a masters level intern, you have come to the right place!

Here are some reasons that a Masters level intern might be a good fit for your clinical needs:

Our Master’s level intern program provides a mutually beneficial safe space between a clinical masters student and client to explore and address their clinical needs.

  1. REDUCED RATE FOR QUALITY CARE: Our interns are able to provide a quality counseling experience at a reduced rate of $25 per session.
  2. “IT TAKES A VILLAGE”: Did you know a Masters level intern is required to receive weekly one-on-one supervision with a fully licensed supervisor AND meet weekly with their university supervisor? It’s the truth! You will meet with your therapy intern on a regular basis but will have the knowledge and support of experienced licensed clinicians behind the scenes, both from Inner Courage Counseling and the intern’s university.
  3. BEST FIT MODEL: Here at Inner Courage Counseling, we hand place individuals seeking counseling with the appropriate therapist, this even includes interns. We feel counseling progress starts with the relationship and cannot always be measured by license level.
  4. EXTENSIVE COURSE WORK: Our interns are nearing the end of their schooling, which has most likely taken 6+ years to learn, engage, and practice the skills they will be using in your counseling session to help you meet your goals.
  5. EXTENSIVE INTERVIEW PROCESS: Inner Courage Counseling values quality care for their clients. This stands for our front office staff to licensed therapists to Masters interns. When a potential client reaches out for services, we understand the courage and vulnerability that goes into that step towards change. We are not willing to put a client in a position to be a “guinea pig”. For these reasons, we ask our interns to go through an extensive interview process to make sure they are able to perform at the level of clinical competence we want to provide to our clients and that Inner Courage Counseling can provide the level of support needed for our clients therapy experience.
  6. EXPERIENCE AND PERSPECTIVE: Many of our interns come to us after transitioning to the field of counseling as a second career. They are able to bring the experience from their past into their clinical work to best help you, as their client. Being that they are also still immersed in their education, they also provide fresh perspective regarding counseling practices, theories, interventions and skills they can offer you.

"When getting in touch with someone to find a therapist I was emailed by Stacy Ramirez, she was very kind and helpful which was appreciated because I have never seen a therapist so I was unsure of the process. I had my first session with Beth Halterman, she made sure to introduce herself before the first session which i thought was very sweet because I was a bit nervous about seeking a therapist to begin with and seeing someone face to face for the first time without having ever spoken before would have made me a bit more nervous."

"Inner Courage Counseling has a lovely building that's warm and clean. My counselor was so good that when she started at Inner Courage I moved practices so I could stay with her. I would absolutely recommended them to anyone seeking counseling."

"I have always been hesitant about counseling especially when it involves my daughter. But I have to say Brittany Roback is absolutely amazing. My daughter has been seeing Brittany for about 6 months now and I have seen great improvements. Just after the first session I saw my daughter using skills Brittany had shown her. Brittany has always made sure to make my daughter and myself feel comfortable. My daughter sees it as a safe place when she sees Brittany."

"Inner Courage Counseling has really been there for me from the moment I first called and they continue to be. I have always struggled to find a counselor that I mesh well with and one that creates an environment that I feel encouraged to dedicate time for myself. I’ve learned things about myself that I never knew before and I’m excited because I know I will continue to. I truly feel like I am growing in a positive way after each session. That’s both exciting and encouraging for me."
