Doctoral Level Clinical Practicum

At Professional Counseling Center, we value both providing unprecedented care and giving back to the community. One way in which we engage in these values is training future clinicians in unique integrated care. Our clinical practicum with the mental health team offers opportunities to conduct individual therapy, group therapy, co-facilitated therapy experiences (e.g. family/couples sessions, etc.), and psychological assessment. Common assessments include (but are not limited to) cognitive, memory, personality, executive functioning, and projective tests. We have several licensed supervisors available to supervise students and meet their specific needs.

Our facility is integrative, which means that students will be able to refer to and collaborate with medical staff on site. Clients regularly receive comprehensive care in this way, which allows for students to have a unique way to connect to holistic care for each client.

Students are given the chance to create unique groups, and practice with their own theoretical style. On site, we have a great variety of clinicians who practice with various treatment modalities. Currently, those include psychodynamic, ACT, attachment theory, DBT-informed care, multi-cultural and gender focus, sex-specific therapy, and REBT.

Our typical practicum student will be on site for 9-12 months, spending 20 hours a week at a specific or mixed facilities. One evening per week is required.
