It is the mission of Northwest Counsel to provide access to high-quality therapy for underserved populations while also providing excellent training and supervision for counseling graduate students.

There is currently one internship spot available for a counseling psychology student.

  • Clients will be of all ages and gender
  • Interns will receive weekly clinical supervision (1 hour of supervision for every 10 client hours) and additional weekly group consults and trainings in differing methodologies and clinical processes
  • Interns will see approximately 6-10 clients/week over a nine-month commitment
  • Interns will have the option of bringing their clients into their own practice at the end of the year, should they decide to build their own business. There is no guarantee of employment at Northwest Counsel upon completion of the internship program.
  • Convenient Puyallup location with on-site supervision
