Internships/ Practicums


I provide supervision to students who are in a Masters program and in need of a place to complete contact hours for an internship or practicum. The students that I work with are from many different colleges and universities..

Students completing their practicum or internship with CW Counseling & Consulting receives teaching on the job with developmental conversations, regular feedback, and the provision of a rapid response to issues as they arise. Due to the amount of time that it takes to effectively provide a great educational experience for the student, only a limited amount of students are accepted at a time. In order for a student to complete their internship or practicum at my site, the following must occur:


   1. Complete a background check

   2. Complete an Application Packet

   3. Submit a copy of their resume

   4. Provide a copy of their liability insurance

   5. A completed schedule of the time that they will be available

   6. Willing to pay to be added to my professional liability insurance in addition to that which is required as an individual.
