Opportunity for MFT Interns


You finally graduated from your Master's program in counseling psychology and now what? Do you think that counseling couples is intriguing but may be intimidating for you? Maybe you just need a nurturing environment and robust training to build your couples skills.


Becoming a couples therapist is an incredible way to help others and also build a successful therapy practice. If you are looking for a primary internship or wish to supplement another intern location, you are in the right place.


My couples focus has made me keenly aware of the immense need for couples specialists. My clients often respond well to our work together and refer their friends; however, I don't have anywhere near the capacity to help all that reach out to me and it pains me to refer clients to other good couples therapists who are also full. Helping to build the next generation of well-trained couples counselors just makes sense for everyone.


  • COUPLES FOCUS: The main focus of your training will be on couples counseling. In many programs, you may see only a few couples over your entire internship, almost like it's an afterthought even though couples counseling is one of the highest demand areas in therapy. With me, you will have a chance to build your skills with couples on a daily basis.

  • COUPLES SKILLS: You will receive deep exposure to Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), Imago Therapy, Couples-based CBT, and other couples-based approaches. 

  • BROAD SKILLS DEVELOPMENT: Since couples bring in every kind of problem (depression, anxiety, addictions, trauma, parenting issues, sexual struggles...), you will also build confidence in handling these areas.  

  • CLIENT FLOW: You will be able to offer counseling to the significant overflow of couples seeking counseling from me as well as learn how to market and attract your own clients.

  • INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION: You will receive lots of individual supervision so you will have time to discuss your cases and experiences. 

  • OFFICE: We will share an office that is set up to treat couples and is conveniently located near major crossroads.

  • PRIVATE PRACTICE: Learn how to launch your private practice, build your client base, and master the business skills of being a therapist. This is an essential area that many interns don't get training in but desperately need.

  • MODERN & EFFICIENT: Learn how to operate your practice efficiently with a paperless document management process. This will provide you with a hassle-free way to manage your client documentation, billing and insurance records.

  • FAITH: For clients who express an interest in an integrating their faith into therapy, you will learn how to make spiritual growth part of a positive therapeutic experience.

  • PAYMENT: You will receive fair payment for your services.


  • A caring heart for others, specially struggling couples.

  • A desire to learn and grow every day.

  • A Registered Intern # from the BBS.
