Consultation, Supervision & Mentoring

     Consultation, Supervision and Mentoring for Therapists & Counselors

      Professional standards require ongoing support for Therapists and Counselors to develop the diverse expertise necessary in our work with clients. Pre-licensed Interns work with clients under supervision of licensed professionals who meet continuing education requirements as primary, delegated, and training Supervisors. Post-licensed Therapists and Counselors work directly with clients with support of Consultants and Mentors, who provide professional expertise and specialty training. Supervisors, Consultants, and Mentors serve as "gatekeepers" and provide the "acclimation to the profession" required to meet professional standards for continuing education and refinement of therapy and counseling skills. One important malpractice liability mistake is "failure to consult". We are professionals together in practice and mutual support.
     Each consultation, supervision, and mentoring session provides opportunity for multiple perspectives and new questions. Dialogue opens threads and allows possibilities to untie knots. Here are examples of issues we can address in individual sessions and/or group seminars and trainings:

     Career Choice and Specialization
