Northwestern University Therapist-in-Training Students Offer Affordable Counseling

Marianne Tomlinson Therapy, LLC is proud and honored to be working with one of the nation’s most prestigious institutions of higher learning and research. Marianne Tomlinson Therapy, LLC has been selected as a practicum and internship training site by the Family Institute at Northwestern University for students enrolled in their innovative online Master of Arts in Counseling program. 

The practicum and internship programs are an integral component of clinical training. These experiences provide a closely supervised clinical experience in which therapists-in-training use the knowledge obtained in classes to understand their clients and to develop skills in assessment, psychotherapy and other discipline-related areas. As such, the practicum and internship serve to integrate the theoretical and practical aspects of the education of the professional clinical counselor. These trainings also allow therapists-in-training to become familiar with professional collaboration and consultation in a clinical setting. The overall goals of the practicum and internship are for therapists-in-training to develop their diagnostic and case conceptualization skills through practical application.


Unfortunately, Marianne Tomlinson Therapy, LLC does not have any students working with us at this time. Please check back for further updates regarding student availability. 




What Does Working With a Therapist-In-Training Mean For Me?

If you are looking for quality, low-cost counseling, working with a graduate level therapist-in-training in this program may provide you with what you are looking for. These students receive intensive supervision by Marianne Tomlinson and the faculty of Northwestern University. As a client, you will be exposed to cutting-edge therapies and years of experience.

Can a therapist-in-training really help me?

Yes, feedback from clients confirms high levels of satisfaction with the therapy they receive.

How does supervision help me?

Your therapist-in-training will meet weekly with a skilled supervisor who will review your goals and progress in therapy and make suggestions for how your therapy stays on track to meet your goals.

Is there anything special about the therapy I would receive?

Yes, your therapist-in-training will be practicing a state-of-the-art approach designed to address your goals systematically and with compassion.

How long will therapy last?

So, what is the cost?

Unfortunately, most insurance companies won’t cover the cost of sessions with a therapist-in-training. But, because you would be choosing to work with a student, you would get a reduced fee. All sessions would be offered on a fee-for-service basis. For more information, you can call Marianne Tomlinson at 630-337-6571.
