The Primary Placement for all doctoral psychology interns is at the Outpatient Clinic of Aspire Health Alliance in Quincy, MA

Aspire’s Outpatient Clinic is located at 859 Willard Street in Quincy, MA. The clinic is a multidisciplinary community mental health center that provides outpatient services for thousands of residents of the South Shore. Aspire Health Alliance is committed to employing a variety of evidence-based practices such as ARC, TF-CBT, and EMDR.

We are especially interested in the evidence-based treatments that feature direct and immediate client feedback and emphasize the core common factors that are known to bolster the therapeutic alliance. We practice Feedback-Informed Treatment (FIT) and provide ongoing training for any staff member or intern who would like to develop skills in this promising area. Aspire Health Alliance is committed to providing mental health services that meet the needs of our local community. Our Asian Community Counseling Services (ACCS) staff provide child, family and individual counseling, early intervention and school-based services, In-Home Therapy, Therapeutic Mentoring, parent/family education and forums, and psychological testing in the community and at the Outpatient Clinic. For more information, view our Programs for the Asian Community.
