Children First/Lassen Counseling Services offer internships to post graduate MFT or ACSW interns. Interns may work out of our Red Bluff/Redding offices, but also may have clients in Anderson and Corning. We also have a need for interns in the Siskiyou County area.

Caseloads vary depending on the experience and readiness of the intern. Typically they start out with a few clients, increasing their caseload as they gain competence and experience.

The ideal candidate would have self-confidence, good organizational, computer, and writing skills, a professional appearance, and be able take on and manage their own caseload/scheduling. He/she would be able to take direction, ask questions, and participate as a team member. Knowledge and experience in Medi-Cal documentation as well as bilingual skills (Spanish) would be highly desirable.
