For MFT Interns/Associates and Psychological Assistants
We train pre- and post-doctoral Psychological Assistants, (pre-degree, pre-license) Marriage and Family Therapists and (pre-degree, pre-license) Professional Counselors at both the practicum and registered intern/associate level.
Our goal is to develop skilled Christian professionals who demonstrate genuine compassion and ethical integrity as well as therapeutic excellence.

Our staff also features therapists with significant training and experience in Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT) and Intersubjectivity Theory.
