A supervisor is akin to a coach. The end goal is for the intern to become a well-rounded, ethical and flourishing Licensed Professional Counselor. The internship is an arduous journey to achieve this coveted License. “It takes a village” definitely applies to the mental health community at all levels. I became a Licensed Professional Counselor to pay it forward. I am very blessed to say I love what I do and do what I love. I would like the next generation have the same ability to say that wholeheartedly with great responsibility.
A coach is perseverant and believes in the athlete when they do not believe in themselves and is humble to learn from their mentee just as well. I also believe that the learning should always continue but now is the time for the intern to quench their desired experiences. I provide weekly supervision, group supervision and I also encourage networking. We are very fortunate that our DFW mental health community is a “village” and I make sure to help connect my interns. I encourage continuing education and field trips to the Appeal Process meeting with the LPC Board of Examiners in Austin. If you are interested in a dynamic supervision experience, please call me at 214-783-3581.
