David Hoy & Associates (DH&A) has a commitment to provide great therapeutic care to kids and families! Our dedication to training interns to be the best therapists they can be, is demonstration of this commitment.
Our intern program has been put together with great intention. The team structure allows for more collaboration, support, and educational opportunities. The progression of learning ensures all interns are prepared for every step they take in their role as a therapist. These two guiding concepts of our intern program work to ensure our purpose to provide experience and opportunities, which are beneficial to all parties.
The internship program is open to students finishing a Master’s level degree in a counseling field. The interns help DH&A stay connected to the academic information guiding the work of therapy, while our experienced therapists and supervisors support the interns in learning the art of applying the research into a relational practice.
