Southwest Family Guidance Center offers an internship program for Masters level graduate students in counseling and social work. Directed by Claire Kyllo, LCSW, we work with interns coming from a wide range of university counseling and social work programs. Our internship program provides clinical experience in suicide/crisis risk assessment of children and adolescents, office-based counseling with children, adolescents, families, couples and adults, and ongoing individual and group supervision. Our interns also have the opportunity to participate in our Roots of Empathy and Thriving Kids Programs. Interns are welcome and encouraged to participate in all agency clinical trainings.
Here’s what some of our past interns had to say about their experience working with us:
– Ivonne Riley, 2015 –2016 MSW New Mexico Highlands University.
“My internship experience at Southwest Family Guidance Center was a wonderful one. All the staff there is very inviting, professional, and extremely helpful. The supervision is the best I have had during internships, and the range of jobs and trainings was so helpful for future careers.” —Monique Baca, Intern 2011-2012
“As an intern with SWFGC I was able to expand my knowledge and experience with assessment as well as evidence-based theory interventions. The therapists and supervisors at SWFGC were always helpful and appreciated all the hard work interns do! A great place to get your feet wet with clients and therapy!” —Breeann Wilkinson, 2011-2012 MSW Intern from NMSU-Albuquerque
