“The most fulfilling thing for me, working at Insight, is knowing I’m making a difference, especially with people who may not be able to afford any mental health services. When I first started at Insight I was an intern, and I really liked their spiritual approach. That was really important to me and also the community that they have. For me, it’s really fulfilling to know I’m part of a community that has a spiritual foundation and also provides for people that may not be able to get services otherwise.”

-Meadow Alsobrook, former intern and counselor at Insight Counseling Centers

It serves licensed and pre-licensed mental health professionals (i.e., counselors, social workers, marriage and family therapists, pastoral counselors, psychologists, psychiatrists, addiction specialists, and more), as well as graduate students in any of those disciplines, who seek to explore the ways spirituality, religion, and the search for meaning influence their own lives and the lives of their clients.

  • For mental health professionals and graduate students

CEU Seminars and Workshops

When a month contains an extra (fifth) Friday, our staff has an in-service/Continuing Education program. These workshops are almost always open to the public and focus on a variety of issues, clinical theories, pastoral care, community services, or professional practice. Each workshop is designed to be helpful to local clergy, chaplains, counselors, or congregational leaders.

Education for the Community

Workshops are offered by our counselors for the educational benefit of your community — congregations and other organizations. Workshop topics address the concerns and interests of modern life, with its complex challenges. Any of our workshops can be tailored to fit the needs of your group. The facilitator will discuss extra materials needed when workshops are scheduled. If you are interested in scheduling a workshop for your group, please contact us.

“My time as a master’s intern at Insight Counseling Centers was a phenomenal experience. The first thing that stood out to me was the professional community that the other counselors, supervisors, and staff created. The second thing that stood out is the development opportunities provided by Insight.

The group and individual supervision that I received was instrumental in my development as a counselor. I was given the space to explore who I am as a counselor, as well as the guidance to improve my clinical skills. The group case consultation gave me the both the opportunity to learn from others with various clinical backgrounds and experience, as well as the challenge to present my own cases and accept feedback and instruction.

During the second semester of internship, my husband got a job out of state. Even though my school gave me the option to find an internship in the other state, I decided to stay in Tennessee to finish my internship at Insight. I knew that I wouldn’t get the same experience anywhere else. At Insight, I found a supportive community, which is something all new clinicians need but rarely get. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to intern at Insight and to be a part of the important work Insight does in the community.”

-Krystal LaCoy, 2018 MFT Intern at Insight Counseling Centers

“The supervision in addition to the case presentations and theological reflections have helped me gain a better understanding of the therapeutic process as well as different ways to work with a client. Without you all at Insight, I would have had no idea how to even begin to incorporate spirituality into care, and I thank you all for that learning experience.  I feel that I have been led to this agency and have truly grown as a person, and as a budding therapist because of all of you, and I am grateful for the opportunity you have given me.”
