Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles




The Jewish Family Service of Los Angeles Internship Training Program offers an outstanding training opportunity for developing clinicians.  The JFS{ Pico-Robertson Counseling Center treats a diverse client population of all ages and compositions, including couples and families.  Interns may work in our counseling center and public or private schools. Additionally, we offer expertise in parent education and support, special needs children and their families, and survivors of domestic violence.

Our training program provides intensive individual and group supervision, as well as education and training by experts in the field. Training and supervision are offered in short-term evidence-based practices, as well as other longer-term models of therapy. 



Interns must have completed a masters degree in social work, or marriage and family therapy and be working toward licensure. Interns must be registered and current with the Board of Behavioral Sciences.

Interns are asked to make a commitment of a minimum of 15 hours a week for a period of one year (August-August).  We require interns to be available one evening a week. A limited number of positions are available in January and March. Interns starting mid academic year are also expected to make a year’s commitment.



Applicants should send a cover letter, current CV, and two references (including phone number and email address). We ask that references be familiar with the applicant’s clinical experience.
