Clinical Interns

Blue Couch

Graduate Level Interns

Writing Down Information

We are very excited to have Master level interns available and providing clinical services for our community! These interns are in a graduate level program and placed with us to obtain clinical experience. They receive weekly supervision with Jessica Cauthorne, LCSW, RPT. They are often placed with us for 6-12 months of experience, after which clients are transferred to another provider for continued care if needed. 

Our clinical interns will provide individual, relational and group therapy for our community. In addition to working individually, our clinical interns will offer co-therapy sessions with our licensed therapists. 

Co-therapy appointments allow individuals, couples and families to obtain the benefit and experience to two perspectives as the clinical process unfolds. They consist of a Master’s level clinician and a clinical intern, who closely collaborate in assessing and treating patient concerns. The objective is to provide effective therapy, help our patients reach their treatment goals, and provide our interns with ongoing training opportunities.


If insurance is an issue, our interns offer a discounted self pay rate of $35 per session for those without insurance or who may not want to utilize their insurance. We also have a limited number of time slots for pro bono services.  If you are interested in these services, please contact the office at 575-556-9585 to discuss options and availability.
