Congratulations on graduation and receiving your LPC-Associate license!
What an exciting and daunting time it is to launch into the world of therapy after years of preparation!
My internship was a time of growth and exploration as I learned clinical skills and learned more about myself as a person and clinician. In addition to learning clinical tools about therapy and how to best help my clients, I learned what makes me tick as a therapist- I learned how to see how I show up in the therapy room and how to address my own “stuff” in relation to my role as a therapist. I had wonderful supervisors that helped me grow and I hope to do that for all the licensed interns in my office!
I highly recommend meeting more than one LPC Supervisor to assure you find the right fit for you.
I specialize in eating disorders, disordered eating, and pregnancy and postpartum issues. I have an extensive background in trauma, particularly child sexual abuse, play therapy, and parenting. I use Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapy, some Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and a variety of techniques I have learned at various trainings.
Supervision is charged on a monthly basis of $300, $75/hour for a total of 4 required supervision hours a month.
Regardless WHO you choose for your supervisor, its important to make sure you fit well- here is a list of questions for potential supervisors from Allison Puryear over at Abundance Practice Building!
