Family Resources is a teaching facility and will typically have a student intern or a registered intern working in the practice. Currently, the practice is comprised of marriage and family therapists or mental health counselors in various stages of licensure. It ranges between licensed, provisionally licensed (registered intern with the state), and pre-degree/student interns.
Student interns are individuals who are finishing their Master's degree and are working to gain hours and experience to complete their degree program.
Registered interns are those who have obtained their Master's degree, are now registered with the state, and are working to meet the states licensure requirements.
All interns must have supervision and must report to their supervisor. Dr. Clevenger serves as supervisor to all non-licensed individuals in the practice.
Can I work with the intern?
Here at Family Resources, we want you to receive the best care and feel comfortable with your counselor. This may mean you work with both the licensed therapist and the intern, with just the licensed therapist, or with just the registered intern. You have choices! If you are comfortable working with the student intern, just ask!!!
Do they accept insurance?
No, the interns are not providers for insurance or EAPs. The session rate is $45.
