Careers / Therapist Intern, Graduate level

Therapist Intern, Graduate level

Who are we?

Thrive Behavioral Health is dedicated to helping adults, children, and families obtain mental wellness. Our team is composed of enthusiastic therapists and knowledgeable psychiatrists, all of whom are excited about helping one another in our quest to serve the community. We provide services to individuals receiving Medicaid who live in Baltimore County, Baltimore City, Anne Arundel County, Harford County, Howard County, and Montgomery County. All services are currently provided via telehealth as part of a fee-for-service model. Thrive Behavioral Health is accredited by the Joint Commission.

Working with Us:

Our staff and supervisors focus on client relationships, learning, and growth, in preparing interns to be psychotherapists. Interns will learn to provide appropriate interventions, develop treatment plans, maintain proper documentation of clinical services provided in accordance with COMAR regulations, build rapport, solidify basic counseling skills, and become familiar with the intake and evaluation process.

Along with required individual supervision (1-2hrs per week), interns have bi-monthly group supervision, and are included in clinical case consultations an in-service training. Weekly team meetings for didactic interaction and peer support are also offered to further support student interns.

Following an initial orientation into the program, interns will shadow clinicians via telehealth. Interns will gradually progress from shadowing to providing direct psychotherapy services and will have a case load of their own. Various incentives are offered throughout the year. Opportunities for employment may be available upon completion of the internship program.

Our Clients and Services:

Interns will provide individual and family counseling to adults, families, children, and teens. Most frequent diagnoses include Depression, Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety, ADHD, PTSD, ODD, and many others. Opportunities to lead or co-lead groups may also be available.

Educational Requirement:

Interns must be enrolled in a degree-seeking program based in a helping profession (ex: Counseling, Social Work, Marriage and Family Therapy, Art Therapy, Rehabilitation Counseling).

Practicum/Internship Length:

Preferably 10 to 12 months.

Required Hours Per Week:

10-24 hours, however interns who work closer to a full-time work schedule typically learn more. This requirement includes client sessions, documentation, group & individual supervision, and trainings. Schedules are flexible; however, some daytime availability is required.

Client Contact Hours per Week:

Caseload will start small and increase as needed to meet University/College requirements.

Location(s) of Services:

Interns will provide services via telehealth, “based” out of one of our four offices (Rosedale, Millersville, Silver Spring, or Catonsville).
