How Supervision Helps

Supervisees become prepared to be ethical, well-informed, well-rounded therapists who are better able to protect themselves against potential lawsuits or board complaints. Our sessions will give you real-world counseling supervision on a broad variety of topics:

 

  • Ethical and legal issues

  • Practicing in various settings

  • Networking and marketing as a counselor

  • Evaluation and assessment

  • Mental status exam

  • Information gathering

  • Types of assessments

  • Diagnosis and treatment

  • DSM-5 TR disorders

  • Human growth and development

  • Clinical practice and ethics

  • Codes of ethics

  • Professional development

What to Expect

Supervision is a collaborative partnership. You will be expected to prepare an agenda before every meeting, and you can expect your supervisor to arrive at every meeting having reviewed your agenda and prepared to discuss whatever topics you have questions about.

 

At our telehealth meetings, which may be scheduled weekly or every 2 weeks:

•         We review your case notes to help improve documentation and to monitor ethical compliance.

•         We review psychosocial assessments to help improve written reports and assist with diagnosis formulation.

 

We also are available by phone 24/7 for emergencies.

Group Supervision

Supervision is also provided in groups of up to six supervisees, meeting virtually twice per month with a minimum commitment of six months.

 

As group supervision is a shared experience, the expectation is that you will come prepared to both share your clinical needs and contribute to the learning of others in the group.
