Creative Ways' 2021-2022 Interns

For many years, Creative Ways Therapy has hosted and trained master's level Social Work and Counseling interns.  We select skilled, highly motivated, emotionally mature advanced-year students from accredited graduate schools.  During their internship year, they are thoughtfully mentored and closely supervised, as they work with our clients.  We are so grateful to have our interns on the Creative Ways team, and we are proud of the role we play in their clinical and professional development!
