Working with a Clinician in Training
If you have the choice between a licensed clinician and a practicum or internship student, learn why the clinician in training might be an excellent choice.
Here are Five Reasons
Low Cost and Affordable Care
Clinicians in training can provide lower cost sliding scale sessions, sometimes as inexpensively as $35-75 per session, as compared to $125-150 per session for fully licensed therapists.
Get Seen Quicker
Since the pandemic, the demand for mental health services has exploded, and many practices have long waiting lists. Our interns and practicum students don’t typically have waiting lists and can be more flexible with your schedule.
Practicum students and interns typically have smaller caseloads than other therapists, and as a result they spend more time per client assessing what the best methods are to use.
The Wisdom of Multiple Clinicians
Because clinicians in training are required to practice typically under both a school supervisor, and in addition to that a Harmony Holistic supervisor, your therapist in training will have a multitude of ideas on exactly how to help you in the best and most effective way. This support makes the difference and can help you to solve the issues you are coming into therapy for quicker.
Excited and Open Minded
Clinicians in training are constantly learning, studying, and growing. They have open minds to what can make the biggest difference and most importantly are not stuck in a rut of routine. After years of studying, clinicians in training are ready to jump into the field and they will share with you some of this positive energy as well!
