At Blossom Counseling and Wellness LLC, we are dedicated to empowering our clients through a process of healing and growing within a supportive, compassionate environment. Our providers are skilled and compassionate, and we would love to share our experiences with you as a student!
As private practice clinicians in a holistic, integrative health center, we can provide more than just a counseling experience. Interns will have opportunities to observe and assist in group sessions, workshops, marketing events, community events, and so much more! There will be possibilities to observe and attend limited couples, individual, and family sessions. As a small business, students will also see the daily maintenance of a business – from accounting, marketing, and finances, to payroll and administrative tasks.
Gaining experience in a private practice pre-licensure is a rare opportunity, and one that can provide you with so much more insight and experiences than other students may have the opportunity to receive.
Consistent with the profession’s standards, these internships are nonpaid but may count towards your school credit or experience. Please check with your school and/or Board regarding credit.
These internships are currently offered to undergraduate and Master’s level students only. Master’s level practicum students will qualify if we can meet your school’s clinical criteria. At this time, we are unable to offer Master’s level internships (600 hours) required for graduation and by the state of Pennsylvania.
