Affordable Therapy

Psychotherapy Interns

What is Affordable Psychotherapy?

Affordable psychotherapy with a clinical intern involves therapy sessions conducted by a graduate student who is completing their supervised clinical training. These interns are enrolled in accredited Masters level clinical psychotherapy programs. While still learning and gaining experience, they offer therapy services at reduced rates compared to registered psychotherapist. The sessions are conducted under the supervision of a Registered Psychotherapist and Certified Play Therapist to ensure quality and ethical standards are met. This can be a cost-effective option for individuals seeking therapy while supporting the development of future mental health professionals.
