Counseling Services

DVRC is proud to offer valuable clinical counseling internship experiences to graduate students completing master’s level programs in counseling, art therapy, psychology, and social work. DVRC offers one-of-a-kind services (including the only confidential shelter) at no cost for survivors of domestic violence in Washington County. Our services are in great demand and our counseling interns are crucial to helping us provide these services and meet those needs.

As a counseling intern, you will be responsible for providing an extensive range of clinical counseling services, including:

  • co-facilitating 24-week psychoeducational groups for adult and adolescent survivors of DV
  • providing individual counseling to clients (adults and children) as appropriate
  • conducting client intakes and screening
  • providing DV awareness and educational presentations and trainings to community organizations, including local high schools
  • providing outside resource and service referrals to clients as needed

All interns are required to complete a 40-hour domestic violence training prior to the start of their internship.

Please note: The application period for 2024 internships has closed. The next application period begins in December 2024.
