Supervision groups include post-master’s/pre-licensed professional counselors who work in diverse behavioral health settings including mental health agencies, alcohol and drug addiction treatment programs, private practice, universities, and outpatient clinics. The aim is to help members grow as professional counselors, both in their clinical work with clients and also in their career and professional identity. Group members will trade case presentation responsibilities and will give support and feedback to others. Together we will consider theoretical orientation, skills and techniques, and case management concerns as well as how the person of the therapist impacts the work. Though this is not a therapy group, introspection and self-disclosure are vital components. We will consider how our unique histories and experiences, and how issues of culture and power, shape our practice as professionals. Group members will be expected to treat others and themselves with respect and to remain open to areas for growth and learning. Beyond case presentations, we may at times discuss articles or chapters, podcasts, or videos that relate to professional growth and learning and/or counselor identity.

I hold the Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS) credential through the Center for Credentialing and Education (CCE), and hold LPC Approved Supervisor Status with the TN Board. Since 2011, I have been a clinical supervisor for graduate students in professional counseling programs, including students on internship at a university counseling center, where I was employed as a staff therapist, and students on internship in a variety of community agencies and private practice settings, to whom I have been an adjunct professor in their counseling program. Since 2018, I have been a clinical supervisor for post-master’s/pre-licensed professional counselors who are accruing hours toward licensure.

My approach to supervision is founded in developmental models of supervision, and is tailored to supervisees’ developmental, cognitive, and conceptual levels, while ensuring clients’ needs are met.
