Agencies in Massachusetts

Family

Massachusetts requires that post-graduates receive hours for licensure at locations in which they are not personally in control, including hospitals and community agencies. There are 141 community agencies, including the following sampling, that provide both outpatient and in-home therapy to Massachusetts families and employment opportunities to post-graduate therapists seeking hours for licensure. Some of these organizations provide supervision hours; please contact either the human resources departments or directors for more information. For a complete listing of organizations who provide in-home family therapy, please visit the Massachusetts Behavioral Health Access website. If you would like your agency added to this list, please contact us.

Agency work seems to provide the easiest way to collect clinical hours toward licensure, but some recent licensees have collected their clinical hours elsewhere. For more information about whether your place of employment can provide clinical hours toward licensure, please contact Leija Meadows, the administrative assistant for the Allied Board of Mental Health.
