LRS Center for Emotional Wellbeing, PLLC - Psychotherapy & Clinical Supervision
 
Helping you attain deeper understanding of the nuanced human condition, rather than merely teaching you to become a clinical-skills-set technician...

My Approach to Clinical Supervision

Because Clinical Supervision usually spans over a long period of time, it allows for establishing meaningful, profound, working relationships. 
 
I work best with those who are intellectually curious, self-aware, motivated, courageous to grow as a professional, and who display mindful intention in their work with clients. 

My work in supervision is also most beneficial to those who commit to working together through their entire  journey towards their full license -typically about two years, thus lending opportunities to jointly witness and reflect on the gains and growth through this trajectory.

Together, we will co-create a learning path that will guide you into attaining a fully integrated professional identity.


Contacting Me About Supervision 

 *LPCAs: 
Currently offering supervision almost exclusively as a "Primary Supervisor", allows me to focus all my energies on serving best those with whom I work on a regular, consistent, and long-term basis to see them through attaining full licensure. 

Please, note that I am currently not able to entertain a "Secondary Supervisor" type of contract, unless your current Primary Supervisor and I know each other, and have agreed upon this type of two-tiered, separate supervisors arrangement.


Taking the time to carefully review my Supervision Style, ServicesExperience, &Testimonials, will offer you an opportunity to learn more about me and how I work with supervisees. 
This will also allow you to better ascertain your interest in coming in for a

1-Hour Initial Consultation for $40.- (This is 60% off the regular fee & less than half of the provisional/restricted licensee fee)
I charge this nominal fee for the initial consultation because I reserve a full 1-hour of clinical  to dedicate it exclusively for our meeting each other:
Choosing the right Clinical Supervisor for you will effect your best use of all of your future supervision sessions for     -*roughly* the next 2 to 2-1/2 years towards full Licensure! 
Choosing the right Supervisee for me will allow me to confidently serve as your evaluator, as well as feel comfortable to ethically support your work
It is important that we jointly determine the potential for a mutually fruitful, long-term, supervisory relationship. 

My Supervision Style

I aim at providing you with high quality supervision and consultation. My preferred style is one of acting as a guiding catalyst to the inner process of the supervisee’s development into a solid mental health professional.
I work from a Psychodynamic framework with clients and believe that -inasmuch as it is true in psychotherapy and counseling, the supervisee also has the answers to their doubts and hesitancies in the treatment they are providing to clients. However, they may not always be able to access these answers readily.

My framework for supervision also stems from the belief that a graduate level degree in mental health, provides much more than the skills necessary to practice in the field. It also affords us the intellectual sophistication necessary to understanding human behavior and conceptualizing our clients' presentation within the intricate  complexity of their daily lives.  
My goal is to helping you attain understanding of the nuances of the human condition, rather than teaching you to merely become a clinical-skills-set technician.
Our collaboratively working together will facilitate shedding light on these challenges.  

I am committed to offering a learning environment and direction to educational resources, which are integrally foundational to those just starting in the mental health field.
The goal of my supervision work is not solely directed at meeting the NC Licensing Board requirements; rather, its higher purpose lies in fostering the supervisee's trajectory towards becoming a more intentional and thoughtful professional.
I continually evaluate supervisees by their motivation to learn, diligence in engaging in their own professional development, and capacity for self-reflection and critical thought.
