SUPERVISED POST-GRADUATES, INTERNS, & PRACTICUM STUDENTS

MLTS is dedicated to helping and preparing pre-licensed clinicians and graduate students to become experienced and qualified independent clinicians.  Through providing them with supervised experience, we help to ensure that they become competent, well-qualified clinicians that are able to learn and utilize a multitude of therapeutic approaches in order to meet the varied needs of their clients.  MLTS places a strong emphasis on providing solid, quality care to all clients so only our most experienced and senior licensed clinicians supervise our post graduates and interns to ensure clients are still receiving the same standard of excellence our clients have come to expect from our practice. Services provided by pre-licensed clinicians and interns are not reimbursed through insurance, but we do offer such services at a reduced fee based on the clinician’s level of experience and amount of weekly supervised hours.  All of our post-graduates and students have had several years of previous mental health experience prior to joining our practice.
