Child and Family Therapist Internship

This Child and Family Therapist Internship is for current Master level students in their MSW, MA, or MS programs. Interns in our Child and Family Outpatient Services Program in Olympia or Shelton will gain experience working with a diverse child, youth and families population. Interns will meet with clients in person or via telehealth for outpatient mental health appointments. Interns will gain experience using EBPs, staffing cases, and navigating electronic health records.  Interns receive weekly supervision as well as weekly group supervision from LMHCs, LICSWs, and LMFTs.


Behavioral Health Resources (BHR) is a not-for-profit provider of community mental health and substance abuse treatment. BHR has locations in Olympia, Tumwater, Shelton, Hoquiam, and Elma. The agency's mission is to support and strengthen individuals, families, and the community by promoting mental health and substance use disorder recovery. Mental health and addiction recovery are integral to overall community health. Our vision is a community healed, through treatment, education, and advocacy. We are committed to equity and inclusion in our services, in our workplace, and in our community.


Behavioral Health Resources offers flexible internship start dates to students. As a health care provider, BHR still requires our staff to be fully vaccinated against Covid, unless they have requested an accommodation for medical or religious reasons and that accommodation has been already approved by BHR. If requesting an exemption, any internship offer will be conditional while BHR reviews and decides on whether the accommodation request will be approved or denied.
