Being an Intern at the Center for Child Counseling has been one of the most rewarding and enlightening learning experiences I have ever encountered. I can honestly say that after spending a year working and growing with the Center, I have never known a group of individuals as dedicated, knowledgable, and passionate as those who work and serve at the Center for Child Counseling. With their team of go-getters and exceptional interns, It is no wonder the Center has grown so much and impacted so many in such a short period of time!

I started working for this amazing organization 4 months ago and am astounded by the extremely supportive leadership team, the holistic approach to working with children and families, and the passion that everyone has for the services we provide in Palm Beach County.
As a certified yoga instructor and holistic health coach in addition to my role of therapist, I feel incredibly honored to be working for an organization that not only encourages teaching children about yoga, deep breathing and other mindfulness practices, but makes a determined effort to bring yoga into the daycare centers. Furthermore, the organization's state-of the-art play therapy rooms are replete with materials that reinforce mindfulness (e.g. the Hoberman sphere) and creative exploration.

This agency can pride itself in a holistic approach of healing that integrates the values, support and hope that children and families need for a better future. Having seen the power of play at work, I truly believe in the incredible way that it empowers children, strengthens parents and heals families. I am proud to be a part of an organization that "walks the walk" as it assists others in how to BE THE BUFFER by modeling this very concept in daily practice.

I am getting my masters in social work and interned with them for my foundation school year. It was a great experience and it is great to see that agencies like this exist. The staff is excellent and the children really benefit from the program.

Center for Child Counseling is an exceptional impact organization and I wish with all my heart that such agencies existed when I was a child. As an adult survivor of Adverse Childhood Experiences, I can tell you how much of life saver this nonprofit is. The lenses we forge in childhood are the same lenses through which we see things as an adult, and if issues are left unresolved, those lenses can color and distort everything. Kudos to CfCC for being the front line warrior in defense of Palm Beach County children!

My internship experience at the Center for Child Counseling was more than I had imagined it to be. The staff, therapists, and fellow interns were extremely supportive throughout my time there. Their knowledge and influence impacted me and allowed me to grow into a more confident worker. Most importantly, they’re passionate about the children and families they serve. Every day was a positive learning experience. I am fortunate to have landed an amazing internship at the center and even more fortunate to be asked to join the team as an independent contract therapist. Thank you to all that made my experience a memorable one. I look forward to a successful journey with each one of you!

I had an incredible educational experience interning at the Center for Child Counseling. Training for the program was amazing and the staff was as supportive as they could possibly be. Every employee there cares deeply about the clients they serve and the organization works diligently to help the children in our community. I could have have asked for a more positive and transformative intern experience.

I had a wonderful internship experience at the Center for Child Counseling. They are thorough in training and supervising their interns. I was never hesitant to ask for help and made some great friends with other interns along the way. I received great clinical experience which I will use throughout my career. Thank you to the Center for Child Counseling for taking pride in their interns just as much as you take pride in your clients!
