We are currently accepting applicants for OFF-SITE supervision only for our Counselor Internship Program. LPC-Interns are welcome to apply. All interns must have reliable transportation and be able to pass a criminal and background check. Supervision is provided by Shahidrah Cowgill, M.A., LPC-S.
What to Expect:
- Supervision is a collaborative process through which interns are treated as respected professionals.
- Consistent review of intern’s case notes to improve documentation and to monitor ethical compliance.
- Real-life perspectives and advice in private practice on topics such as, dealing with subpoenas, CPS, possible ethical & legal issues that may arise in practice, issues to consider when practicing in private practice, non-profits, and community or in-home settings, how to do thorough assessments, initial evaluations, treatment planning and progress notes, giving a diagnosis utilizing the DSM 5 & adapting to the new ICD-10 codes, crisis & safety, specialized training to work with trauma survivors, case management, implementing effective self-care strategies as a clinician and how to network and advertise yourself as a counselor.
- Access to specialized clinical resources to strengthen skill set and earn free CEU’s
- If desired, supervision can include counseling from a Christian viewpoint with the balance of a variety of effective clinical treatment protocols
- A low monthly supervision fee includes weekly individual sessions, resources, networking opportunities, and group supervision, when feasible. There is no fee for the initial meeting with the staff supervisor and the Intern does not start to pay the supervision fee until the Intern has received his/her provisional license. On-site LPC-interns will have an opportunity earn direct client hours leading groups and counseling individual clients or families
- This is a comprehensive program that prepares Counselor interns for Private and Agency practice. Our desire is to teach and train each professional to be ethical, well-informed, well-rounded counselors who will be an asset to the surrounding community in which they practice and serve.
