The Intern Option
Trinity Family Counseling Center has long been a premier internship site for counselors-in-training. Masters level graduate students must complete an internship for their degree education. The intern’s case work is directly supervised by the Owner and Director of the Counseling Center, Tonya Ratliff, who has extensive post-graduate training in counselor supervision.
At Trinity, we offer the intern’s services at a reduced fee of $25.00 per session. This opportunity allows those who might not otherwise be able to afford counseling services to experience the benefits of counseling in a safe, non-judgmental, and confidential environment.
Counseling services provided by the Intern include:
At the current time, we are between intern assignments. However, we expect to have a new intern on site in the near future.
If you wish to be placed on the Intern Wait List, or would like to hear about our other options for affordable counseling, please call 586-254-3663, ext. # 1 to speak with our Director of Counseling Services, Tonya Ratliff.
It is with enthusiasm and the highest degree of confidence that I offer my recommendation of Trinity Family Counseling Center as a clinical internship site for counseling students.
As a former intern at Trinity Family Counseling, I would definitely recommend working with and being supervised by Tonya Ratliff, LPC. She is not only professional; she is gracious with her praise and instructional in her guidance. I learned how to be subtle but firm, gentle but tough and an incredible amount of therapeutic wisdom from her supervision.
I highly recommend Tonya Ratliff, LPC, NCC, ACS, as an exemplary supervisor for mental health professionals.
I consider myself fortunate to have had my counseling internship at Trinity Family Counseling Center under the supervision of Tonya Ratliff, Director. I was given a client caseload for the entire duration of my internship. I had access to Tonya as my Supervisor for an hourly weekly meeting as well as any time I had questions or concerns in working with clients. In addition, I felt supported by the other counselors working in the practice any time I had a question for them. It is a warm and supportive environment.
