The California Board of Behavioral Sciences (BBS) encourages marriage and family therapy trainees and interns to receive personal psychotherapy. The BBS allows each MFT trainee or intern to triple count up to 100 hours of personal therapy toward the 3,000 hours of total clinical experience required for licensure. In addition, more and more graduate schools are requiring graduate students in psychology and social work to receive personal psychotherapy before graduation.
If you are an MFT or social worker trainee or intern, it helps to have professional development and support from a fully-licensed clinician as you navigate the long road toward licensure. We have been providing clinical supervision and personal psychotherapy to graduate students, trainees, and interns for over 12 years. We enjoy helping new clinicians with their professional development as they learn and apply various theoretical approaches to their clinical work. We also enjoy helping new clinicians develop good assessment, diagnosis, and treatment planning skills, with a strong emphasis on the current legal and ethical standards for our industry.
