Jaclyn Contreras, LPC Intern


Jaclyn Contreras, MS, LPC Intern

(Clinical Supervisor LPC Interns are required to list their Clinical Supervisor after their name in the same font as their name. We know. This is confusing for the consumer. But we like therapists that know, and follow their licensing rules. LPC Interns should not be confused with school interns who are still in school. We don't employ any school interns. LPC Interns have completed their masters degree and passed their licensing exam. But they can't be fully licensed until they have an additional 3,000 hours of supervised practice and a minimum of 18 months. That's a lot of hours, so most take longer than the minimum.: Bret Menassa)
