Intern Testimonials

Interning at Small Talk has truly expanded my knowledge and experience of how to support children and families who are victims of child abuse. It also has helped me connect with a great team of individuals who love and care for the clients we serve! I encourage anyone who is interested in this field to really choose to learn and grow with Small Talk. 

-Sue Nguyen, BASW Student, 2020-2021 year

I was an intern at Small Talk for eight months, and my experience was phenomenal. Going into an internship of any kind can be nerve-racking, but Small Talk did a great job at easing me into things and making sure I always had the support I needed. Everyone at Small Talk was extremely kind and included me in everything possible to gain as much experience as I could. My direct clinical supervision was provided by crisis counselor Mollie Delzeith and she was absolutely amazing. I could not have asked for a better supervisor! I would recommend Small Talk as an intern site to anyone interested in working with trauma in children, any day!
