Congratulations on reaching this major milestone in your career. What an exciting adventure you are about to embark on and I would be honored to join you on your journey to becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor with 29 years’ experience and have a wealth of knowledge to share with you. Your practicum and field experience gave you a start and your postgraduate experience as an LPC Associate will take you to the next level.
Finding a supervisor is an important decision that should be considered carefully. It’s important that you have a connection and feel that there is a fit between you and your supervisor as you will be working together for a long time. Your clinical supervision is an investment in your career that will impact you not only now, but in the future. It is important that you select a supervisor that will help not only meet your needs but identify your strengths, weakness, give you supportive and professional guidance, direction and feedback and help you grow as a professional and perhaps even as an individual.
I don’t intend to tell you how to do therapy; however, I will assist you in developing your own style and approach that is unique to you and incorporates both your personality and core beliefs. I adhere to the highest ethical standards and go above and beyond for each and every intern. I am very open and easy to work with and will respect you as a person as well as a professional. I am committed to providing you with excellent training which includes structure, foundational skill building, constructive feedback and a safe environment in which you are free to develop your own style. I also share the wealth of information and resources that I have collected over the past 29 years. I offer continued support between supervision sessions by email, text and phone. In addition to clinical training, I will also teach you the marketing and business aspects of a developing a counseling practice. I prepare you so that once you are fully licensed; you will be ready for private practice. If you are interested in learning both the clinical aspects of counseling as well as the business aspects of a private practice then give me a call.
My supervision model is slightly different, so I will provide a brief overview. I have developed a practice where Associates are able to work for pay while expanding their clinical skills. I offer both group and individual supervision on a weekly basis. Group sessions focus on enhancing your skills through presentations and additional training. Individual supervision remains specific to your needs. I limit the number of Associates I supervise in order to maximize your direct hours and have adequate time for you. If you are interested in learning more about working with me, expanding your clinical knowledge as well as learning about the business aspects of a private practice then give me a call.
I accept both LPC Associates as well as Practicum Students. If you area student seeking a practicum placement to obtain hours give me a call. Supervision is free for all students.
