Because we have been receiving more inquiries, some of which are not applicable to the training that we offer, we thought we would help you understand who we hire and how we train here at New Life. We only accept applications from LPC Interns and Associates.
Associate's or Bachelor's Degree:
We do not have any employment opportunities for this level of training. You are welcome to contact us ahead of your site-based internship in your master’s degree program.
Pre-Master's Degree practicum or intern options:
We offer 2-3 graduate students per year the opportunity to complete their practicum/intern hours toward graduation. To apply, please complete the application for employment and submit a resume.
Post-Master's Degree, pre-licensure internship:
We offer 2-3 post-graduate LPC-Associates per year the opportunity to complete their 3000 hours toward state licensure, and become highly competent therapists. To apply, please complete the application for employment and submit a resume.
Crucial Considerations: A couple of items are paramount in determining whether or not we will be a good "fit" for you.
1. We are specifically Christian and only hire interns who are deeply anchored in their personal faith. Typically, interns specifically come to work with us to learn more about how to integrate faith into their counseling practice with high ethics and integrity.
2. We are a training center, which means that an internship at our center is an extension of your education. To work with our center requires that a graduate intern or post-grad Associate be anchored in one particular theory, and to focus his/her research, application, case presentation, etc., in this particular theory. This is supported by weekly trainings in Group Supervision and Theory Training.
Doctoral level internship:
We do not offer doctoral level internships, as these are typically only 100-200 hours. We want to train someone for a longer period of time. So, our commitment to all of our interns and associates is to train more thoroughly than this limited time will allow.
The NLCC Application for Employment can be mailed to our Round Rock New Life Counseling address or emailed to Angel Hirsch, LPC at firstname.lastname@example.org, at least two, preferably three months prior to your anticipated start date.
