The Lesley University Counseling Center offers an internship program each academic year.
Internship is open to students enrolled in master’s and doctoral level programs in the local area. Applicants must be 25 years or older. All applicants need to have experienced their own personal therapy.
If you are interested, you may drop off your resume and three letters of recommendation at the Counseling Center, which is located on the 3rd Floor of Doble Hall on the Doble Campus, or you may email the information to Magi McKinnies, the Director of the Counseling Center, at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also mail the information to Magi McKinnes, Lesley University Counseling Center, 29 Everett Street, Cambridge, 02138. We will review all resumes and contact those whom we plan to interview.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis beginning in mid-December and continuing until final decisions are made in mid-late January. Applicants are advised to apply ASAP. If you do not have all your recommendations in place at this time, send or bring in the information you do have.
Training and administrative meetings take place weekly on Monday and Friday afternoons. Other than these meetings, times are flexible, depending upon everyone's schedule and office availability. Interns are required to work one evening a week.
If you have been an ongoing client at the Counseling Center, you will not be eligible for the internship program.
We prefer students doing their second year internship. We will consider an unusually experienced and/or mature candidate doing a first year internship.
Thank you for your interest. If you have any questions, please feel free to call 617.349.8545. We look forward to hearing from you.
