MLTS is dedicated to helping and preparing pre-licensed clinicians and graduate students pursue their goal in becoming experienced clinicians. We like to play our part in ensuring that they become competant, well qualified clinicians that are able to learn and utilize various therpeutic approaches in order to meet the varied needs of their clients. MLTS places a strong emphasis in providing good, quality care so only our most experienced, 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 their services at a reduced fee that's based on their 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.
