Congratulations on making it this far into the counseling world! Clinical Supervision is a long road, and I am excited to support you in your journey. My education, special training, experiences in both life and the counseling profession, private practice ownership, and prior management roles have enhanced my ability to implement a genuine, strategic, and solution-focused supervisory experience. This is an opportunity for you to learn, explore, and challenge yourself. I follow all of the requirements for supervision as set forth by the Texas State Board of Examiners of Professional Counselors.
My supervision includes:
Individual weekly sessions held virtually for one hour.
Feedback and guidance on counseling techniques, diagnosis, assessments, ethics, and application of theories.
Review of case notes, documentation, and treatment plans.
What I am looking for in an LPC Associate:
An individual who possesses a strong ethical and moral foundation. Please know your Texas State Board of Examiners of Professional Counselors Code of Ethics. You can find them here.
An individual who accepts responsibility, is committed and respectful of the supervisor-supervisee relationship, is organized, has effective time management skills, and is willing to ask questions.
An individual who is dedicated to the counseling profession and is willing to advance their skills by attending continuing education opportunities.
An individual who is flexible and open to feedback, guidance, and collaboratively setting goals toward professional growth.
State of Texas LPC Associate Process:

Apply for LPC Licensure (also known as the temporary license). All LPC Associate documents are to be sent to the Texas State Board of Examiners of Professional Counselors. Your application process may take up to six weeks to be processed.
An Associate must obtain 3,000 total clock hours while under supervision, 1500 hours must be direct client contact during a minimum of 18 months.
