School Counseling Practicum Sites

Locating a Practicum Site

Candidates are responsible to arrange their own practicum placements. Potential sites include private practices, group homes, community service boards, non-profit organizations, hospitals, hospices, etc. Candidates can provide the Practicum Information Letter to potential sites to give them an overview of the practicum requirements. If a contract or Memorandum of Agreement is needed, the student or site may contact schoolcounseling@liberty.edu for assistance.

Tips for Locating a Placement

  • Provide the Practicum Information Letter to potential site supervisors to give an overview of the practicum requirements.
  • Inquire with your church’s pastor for recommendations. Pastors frequently have relationships with Christian counselors in the community.
  • Use an online job search site to search for a credential such as “LPC” or “LMFT” to locate a list of sites in your area which employ licensed counselors.
  • Psychology Today offers a Find a Therapist tool which you can use to search for a counselor in your area.
  • The Christian Care Network through the American Association of Christian Counselors is a national referral network of Christian counselors which you can use to search for a Christian counselor in your area.
  • The American Psychological Association offers a Psychologist Locator tool which you can use to search for a licensed psychologist in your area.
  • Theravive offers a search tool which you can use to search for counselors by specialty.
