You deserve an intellectually stimulating, safe environment that encourages open thought and professional growth whether you are an AMFT, ASW or PCCI seeking your hours. LCSW intern supervision is a place where you can get the support you need.
The goal of supervision is to increase your clinical acumen and skill; my job is to ensure that you receive a rich and collaborative environment to do so. We create a plan to establish your professional objectives, determine what skills are needed to reach them, as well as how to know when they have been met. You can be assured that we will work specifically on cases that you bring to the session.
The California Board of Behavioral Sciences Board Examinations is broad and covers what each LPCC, LCSW, and MFT should know as a licensed practitioner. The general content of each exam is addressed consistently throughout LCSW intern supervision groups, and when it’s crunch time, it’s a comfort having a ‘study team’ to depend on.
Whether you are an IMF, PCCI or an ASW seeking supervision hours, you can rest assured that you are ready for your future success.
Group supervision is open to ASWs, IMFs, and PCCIs throughout the state of CA. Please contact me for a complimentary consultation if you would like to discuss your interest.
Am I able to receive MFT – LPCC – LCSW intern supervision via videoconferencing?
Per the California Board of Behavioral Sciences, if you are working for a non-profit charity you are able to obtain your MFT, LPCC and LCSW intern supervision online. Governmental entities, colleges, universities and most schools also meet this criterion.
The American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT), the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and the California Association of Professional Clinical Counselors (CALPCC) have all recognized the value of using video conferencing in supervision as well as therapy.
How do I know that my supervision is confidential and follows HIPAA regulations?
As with all LCSW intern supervision, a letter of agreement will be signed by all members establishing confidentiality in group sessions, with the exception of mandated reporting. Sessions will be held through VSee, a video conferencing platform designed specifically for HIPAA compliant sessions. VSee is free for interns to download and use.
How much does supervision cost?
One hour of individual supervision is $80
Two hours of group supervision is $60
How many hours can I complete under group supervision?
For associate social workers (ASWs), marriage and family interns (IMFs) as well as professional clinical counselor interns (PCCIs), groups will satisfy up to 52 of the 104 required weeks of supervision.
What is covered in the group process?
Most interns I work with come with various levels of competence and needs depending on their professional responsibilities and career trajectory. I create a plan with you to establish your professional goals and what skills are necessary to reach them, as well as how to know when they have been met. Each plan addresses all of the following areas of competency: biopsychosocial and risk assessment, ICD-10 and DSM-5 diagnostics, treatment plan development, cultural competency, therapeutic interventions, developmental theories, community resource coordination as well as legal and ethical standards.
The California Board of Behavioral Sciences Board Examinations covers what interns need to know as a licensed practitioner. The general content of each exam is addressed throughout our work together. It’s encouraged that you lean on one another to build ‘study teams’ when you are six months away from your first test.
What are the expectations of each participant?
The goal of supervision is to increase your clinical skill; my job is to ensure that you receive a rich and collaborative environment to do so. Group work provides an opportunity to receive constructive feedback and ideas from a diverse group of peers. Interns take turns presenting case consult as well as provide helpful input to others. There will be times that either one of us may request an individual session as appropriate.
