Here is what some of our former interns have said about their experience at A New Hope Therapy Center.
A New Hope Therapy Center provided a great experience for me as a student intern. They walked alongside me as I gained clinical training. I received immense support as well as encouragement, understanding, and guidance. A New Hope also created a safe space for me to grow, ask questions and learn. Thanks to my supervisors at A New Hope, I feel equipped and ready for my next chapter in counseling!
15/10 would recommend. I never expected to have such a wholesome, challenging, and exciting internship experience. Everyone at A New Hope genuinely cares for us interns. The amount of support provided is unfathomable. The seasoned supervisors are approachable and calm - always respecting you, even when providing constructive feedback. My supervisor embraced my character, strengths, and aspirations. Maria (CEO) makes herself more accessible than I could have hoped for - she will make time to share what she knows with you, all you have to do is ask. This practice is refreshing, encouraging, and the ideal place to become the counselor that you dream of becoming prior to graduating. It is a fun, safe I assure you: you will not regret being associated with A New Hope and absorbing the wealth of knowledge only they can provide so beautifully.
I enjoyed my experience, I am sad to leave but grateful for the opportunity. This experience helped me grow in learning how to implement a lot of what I learned in school to a real world setting. Have fun! If you are nervous or worried about something - reach out - asking for help and advice helped me learn different techniques and strategies that I didn't even think of. I would definitely recommend this internship placement.
My experience with ANHTC was very positive. Even though it was during the pandemic, I still felt connected and welcomed by the team. The environment was transparent and friendly. I can only imagine working with the rest of the team in person! I totally recommend this place to other interns and professionals who share the same vision to make a difference in the lives of others. This is the place to be.
My experience with A New Hope was fulfilling and exceed my expectations! The support I received from everyone I interacted with truly made the experience memorable and helped me grow as a clinician. I have gained so much confidence from the beginning of my internship and am so grateful. I was given the opportunity to work with each of my clients and witness the growth each of them made.
My time as an intern at ANHTC was an amazing experience. The constant support from my supervisor and clinicians in the group inherently fostered my growing confidence and self-efficacy. The group practice gives you every opportunity to grow, which aids in your ability to step out of your comfort zone and try new techniques, populations and theories. By working at ANHTC it has been a driving force behind my continued passion to be in this industry. There are no words to describe how grateful I am and how excited I am for other clinicians and clients to become a part of this team.
The best experience is that I could practice hands-on while being guided to practice ethically and implement theories within sessions. I recommend this site for clinicians that want to learn what a safe and constructive work environment should be. There are many experiences that can be learned through the supervisors and other professional clinicians.
Thank you for your interest in pursuing your clinical practicum with us!
