David Lawrence Center

Therapist Intern

August 2020 • Naples, FL

What I liked

I am currently in my senior year of undergrad, pursuing a degree in Psychology. This internship has provided an amazing opportunity to gain clinical experience that is not ordinarily available to undergrad students.

What I wish was different

Although I am gaining lots of insight and experience in co-leading group sessions and learning the dynamic between therapist and client, I do wish there was more structured/formal training, rather than just shadowing.


Take full advantage of the opportunity and step outside of your comfort zone to gain as much experience in the field as you can. Gaining as much experience as possible will not only look good on resumes, but will improve your skills and help you excel in your field of choice.
