Intern with Vesta

Vesta offers an extensive internship program for Social Work and Counseling students specializing in mental health in the advanced standing year of their master's program.


At Vesta, students can expect to gain a wide variety of clinical skills by working with clients of all backgrounds to provide outpatient therapeutic services. Students will have the opportunity to learn about diagnoses, interventions, and best practices in a supportive environment. Upon completion, our interns have reported they are ready to step into this important profession with confidence in the skills they have gained during their time at Vesta. 

We value the contributions our interns make to our community of healing, and as such we are proud to offer significant benefits to interns who choose to stay on with Vesta post-graduation. Interns that elect for employment with Vesta following graduation receive 110% compensation for the services provided while in the internship program, paid out in a lump sum after 6 months of employment. This sign-on bonus is to be enjoyed in addition to the regular benefits and bonuses enjoyed by our Vesta clinicians. 

Please see our Internship requirements below.
