It is an amazing professional and personal journey to becoming a Licensed Professional Counselor, and one which I would suggest is really the just the beginning of a life-long exploration. As a Board approved supervisor in the State of Texas, I am excited to offer clinical supervision for LPC interns working toward obtaining the 3,000 clock hours of client contact required to become a fully licensed LPC.
I endeavor to support those I supervise with a strong alliance, broad clinical knowledge and experience, and a passion for the process of learning and self-growth. If you would like to discuss undertaking supervision with me, feel free to get in touch so we can talk about specifics. However, in general, you can expect the following from me as your supervisor:
- Weekly supervision either individually or in a group setting
- Availability for consultation on crisis or time-sensitive matters
- Feedback on counseling strategies, techniques, interventions and ethics
- Review of documentation and case notes as appropriate
- Support in the development of your personal style, orientation and professional identity
My current and past interns have come from a variety of backgrounds and theoretical preferences including Cognitive-Behavioral, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Solution-Focused, Adlerian, Client-Directed/Outcomes Informed, Harm Reduction, Mindfulness and others.
I believe goodness of fit is one of the most critical pieces to a successful partnership. As the Client-Directed, Outcomes-Informed model influences my work with clients, it also shapes my beliefs about working with interns. Like in the therapy session, the intern-supervisor relationship, or alliance, is the critical factor in facilitating the space for growth and development to occur. I do believe it is deeply important to have mastery over a variety of therapeutic techniques, skills and interventions. However, all the tools in the world will not allow you to help your client if you do not have a strong and effective alliance within which to use them. The alliance is the heart of the therapeutic relationship, and I believe it is also the heart of the intern-supervisor relationship.
Contact me for an initial discussion to see if we might be a good fit. Good luck with your search and I look forward to speaking with you.
