At Embrace Strength Counseling, we strive to make counseling affordable and accessible. Our interns and LPCC’s are able to offer reduced fees for services while working towards their next professional stage, either graduation with a master’s degree or licensure in the state of Colorado. All interns and LPCC’s are supervised by licensed team members at Embrace Strength Counseling, engage in weekly supervision and team meetings, and work collobaratively as part of a team approach. We are happy to answer any questions you have about working with an intern or LPCC at Embrace Strength Counseling!  Below is more information about the different levels and what they mean:

What is a Master’s Level Intern?

Master’s level interns are in the final stages of their clinical training and are accruing hours in the field so they can graduate with their master’s degree in counseling or social work. They have completed a practicum semester where they have provided counseling services either at their University’s Community Counseling Center or another site (e.g. a school, clinic, etc.). Internship is an opportunity to choose where they want to focus and work towards specialized training and skills. All master’s level interns at Embrace Strength Counseling are supervised by myself, Catherine S. Tilford, MA, NCC, LPC, CEDS, and also have a university internship supervisor. 

What is an LPCC?

Licensed Professional Counselor Candidates (LPCC’s) have completed their master’s degree in counseling and are accruing required hours to become licensed professional counselors (LPC’s) in the state of Colorado. LPCC’s have to be supervised by a licensed professional in the field. LPCC’s at Embrace Strength Counseling are supervised directly by Catherine S. Tilford, MA, NCC, LPC, CEDS and collaborate regularly with the team.
