Counseling services are our primary service, and education is our most important product. A teaching private practice is a private practice that partners with medical and psychology schools, education programs and research centers to improve mental health care through learning and research. By being at the forefront of counseling education and research innovations, teaching private practices tend to provide many advantages, including:
- Improved quality of care
- New treatments and innovative care
- State-of-the-art evidence-based practice
- Coordination of care between levels of care
- Measured outcomes
- The expertise of trained and experienced counselors

How Is Care Different at a Teaching Private Practice?
At Embrace, your child, teen, marriage and family will receive care from many specialists, including social workers, marriage & family therapists, professional counselors and wellness coaches. As part of the training and education process, practicum students (graduate students who are beginning their applied practice after completing their graduate coursework and comprehensive examinations) may be part of your Embrace care team. These practicum students provide client care under the direct supervision of a seasoned, highly trained therapist responsible for training the next generation of clinicians.
