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 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. We also no longer provide graduate student training.
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.
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 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 Bowen 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.
