Supervision for Mental Health Counselor Associates and Marriage, Family Therapist Associates, Clinical Social Worker Associates and Certified Counselors
Beginning in 1996, Robert has supervised many counselors and therapists working with a variety of clients and issues. He has provided group supervision since that time and in recent years has provided individual supervision for therapists seeking licensure in the state of Washington as Licensed Mental Health Counselors, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists, and clinical social worker associates. Certifiied Counselors are required to have a supervisor also and Robert will interview those who fall into this category to determine the viability of providing supervisor to a small number of them.
Robert provides both individual and group supervision. Individual supervision hours are allowed to have two supervisees in the session, therefore reducing the cost. Group supervision will be no more than four therapists giving each one a 15 minute segment of the supervision hour. Supervision sessions are usually 60 minutes long, although 90 minute and 120 minute sessions are possible at the appropriate cost.
Robert's philosphy in supervision is that each of us has unresolved family of origin or childhood issues that we likely have not worked on or fully healed. Also, most people going into our field did so because of these unresolved issues. These issues can manifest in what kinds of clients we attract and further in how we work with them. The goal is to resolve those issues in ourselves so they do not interfere with our work and do not affect our client's negatively.
