In-Home Therapy Internship

Brief description of the program:

The Adult In-home Therapy program is a community based service that offers mental health therapy to clients in their homes who have barriers to receiving therapy at an in-office setting.

Patients served:

Clients are all over the age of 18 and have a mental health diagnosis. All of our clients are on Medical Assistance (MA) or Pre-Paid Medical Assistance Plans (PMAP). Additionally, all of our clients have a barrier to receiving therapy in-office.

Internship Training Goals:

Our interns are expected to take on a small caseload of clients (typically around 8-10 clients) whom they meet with weekly for a minimum of an hour, attend all staff and team meetings, attend intern cohort meetings, attend individual supervision with their assigned supervisor weekly, and assist with other tasks that may present themselves within the program.


This internship offers competitive compensation to student interns, recognizing the value of your contributions to our program and clients. Interns are paid a monthly stipend each month that they are a student intern with Nystrom as well as mileage for commute to clients.
