We are not currently accepting applications for the 2021-22 training year.

Chicago Counseling Services offers externship and internship opportunities for graduate-level students. Our clinical training program is committed to equipping students to deliver culturally sensitive counseling to diverse populations.   

As part of our clinical training program, students will have the opportunity to work with individuals, couples, families, and facilitate group therapy in the therapeutic setting to develop and broaden their clinical interests and future pursuits. Students will have opportunities to share space and work with our team of licensed clinicians to increase their professional development, knowledge, and competence while also building their sense of community with other mental health professionals.

Chicago Counseling Services accepts new trainees at the fall of each academic school calendar. If you would like to find out more about our program, please email Dominique at or Kavita Khara at
