Our counseling program is staffed by one professionally licensed counselor in addition to multiple masters-level counseling interns. Our interns, having completed the majority of their coursework necessary for obtaining a Master’s Degree in Counseling, Social Work, or a related field, complete clinical practice hours required by their universities and the State of Indiana prior to graduation and licensure. Our interns meet with our licensed counselor weekly for clinical supervision and support.

If you are interested in Hope Alive’s Internship Program and are pursing a Master’s Degree in Counseling, Social Work, or a related field, we’d love to hear from you! We accept resumes on an ongoing basis. Please contact our clinical supervisor at for more information.
