I worked at Hearts & Hands Counseling as an intern (More than a year)
The client base is so diverse and you can get so much applied educational experience here. You learn what it looks like to be a private practice therapist which is helpful for figuring out if that is what you want in your future. The staff can be very close-knit and supportive.
Management lacks efficient multicultural competency regarding persons of color and sexism and if conflict arises around it, things could get ugly. The business side is lacking and often interns are not offered equal pay, if any at all, because of this. The close-knit expectancy can create resentment between management and staff when employees who prefer to remain professional only, enforce firm boundaries.
Advice to Management
Develop a more effective business strategy so you can afford to bring on a secondary manager and split the work. Pay your male and female interns equally. Take a refresher course on multicultural competency, hire more PoC staff, respect the shared experiences of those staff.
I applied online. I interviewed at Hearts & Hands Counseling (Roseville, CA) in October 2015.
I came in and answered questions about my educational requirement to get one-years practicum experience. Discussed relevant interests in client type, theoretical orientations relevant to the workplace, and preferred style of business conduct. Then i participated in a short conversation about my personal background and was offered a position on the spot
