I worked at Hearts & Hands Counseling for 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.Hearts & Hands Counseling2017-04-24
