Meet Our Interns

We recruit a diverse group of interns every year. Our self-directed learners bring a wide range of experience and interests to the predoctoral internship program, as well as divergent goals for future practice plans.

Our Commitment to Excellence

Interns will be exposed to any and all problems that fall into the health/mental health spectrum, from the straightforward to the very complex. There is no better place than a community health center to gain experience with a wide variety of patient health and wellness concerns!

BHCs also serve on the faculty of CWFM’s family medicine residency program. While a minor rotation within the internship, interested and competent interns may have the opportunity to work with family medicine residents and assist in implementing a robust psychosocial medicine curriculum.

Chelsea Bremer, MA

Behavioral Health Intern

I am excited about the opportunity to work within the PCBH Model, be a part of an integrated team, work in the Pediatric Rotation, and provide services for individuals across the lifespan within a rural community. I was truly impressed by the quality of training offered at CHCW and just how passionate the supervisors are about the work they do.”

Brandon Matsumiya, MS

I primarily will use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to assist individuals in meeting their goals. I utilize an individual’s context to inform my treatment and include all appropriate aspects of the individual’s life in the solutions we develop collaboratively together.
