Supervision

Supervision is a process where a more experienced clinician has the opportunity to assist a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate, a License Professional Counselor Intern or a Licensed Masters Social Worker hone their therapeutic, ethical, and professional skills.  In this process of learning together the supervisor and the Intern/Associate work together to provide for the best treatment for the clients assigned to the licensee.

 

Some of the Independent Counselors who share offices at New Directions Counseling and Wellness Center hold the Licensed Professional Counselor Supervisor, Licensed Social Work Supervisor, and/or the Licensed Marriage and Family Therapy Supervisor designation.  This indicates that the Supervisor has practiced for more than five years and has taken special training in supervising Interns and/or Associates.  The Supervisors at this center supervise individuals who are working at other agencies as well as some who work within our offices.

 

If you are in need of a Supervisor, contact one of our trained staff to see if they are the supervisor you are looking for.

As a Marriage and Family therapist I have training in the dynamics of couple and family relationships. Counseling isn’t just listening, it’s teaching tools and offering new methods for communication, stress management and solving problems.
