It's Our Responsibility To Train The Next Generation of World-Class Clinicians 

At O'Brien & Associates, we feel it is our duty and responsibility to train the next generation of clinicians. If you're an associate, intern, or student who is passionate about helping your clients shed the burdens that keep them from living full and authentic lives - you'll fit in well here. We foster an authentic, engaged, and collaborative team environment that makes training safe, fun, and powerful.

If you are an associate marriage and family therapist, or pre-licensed or certified substance abuse professional, there are opportunities at O'Brien & Associates to learn and accrue hours with some of the best clinicians in our industry. We value and respect those working in our training programs and we compensate them fairly for their time and effort. It is our hope that many of those who have trained with us, will choose to stay on as fully licensed or certified professionals.
