Embodying Hope For a Better Future

Our Washington DC Psychology Externs form the front line clinical team of the Capital Therapy Project, our low-fee psychodynamic therapy institute in Downtown DC.

Our Externship program is designed to provide intensive clinical experience and training rarely available in other training settings.

We emphasize psychodynamic principles in all aspects of the externship program’s clinical services including brief individual psychotherapy, career counseling, and working with DC’s LGBTQ community.

The Externship program is an unpaid 12-month training opportunity in Washington DC that emphasizes the extensive use of technological and supervisory resources. We aim to train tomorrow’s psychologists to excel as clinicians and critical thinkers in the evolving landscape of psychodynamic therapy in the digital age.

Note: All training occurs in Washington, DC. We plan to offer an externship in Manhattan in the future.
