I work with LPC Associates obtaining hours toward full licensure. I am interviewing for two openings that will become available in the Fall of 2021.

APPLICATION FOR SUPERVISION

The relationship between you and your supervisor will last at least 18 months, and sometimes as long as 5 years. That’s a big commitment to enter into. As such, I invite you to think deeply as to what you need and to interview numerous supervisors before making a decision. To help you and I get started in our conversation regarding supervision, please fill out the form below.

ACCEPTING, INTERACTIVE, AND RESPONSIVE

Supervision offers you the space and guidance to grow and deepen your clinical skills, develop a strong sense of who you are as a clinician and business owner, and define what you need to thrive.

I view my role to you as a teacher, mentor, and consultant. As a teacher I am a sounding board and guide for clinical and ethical issues that arise in therapy; as a mentor I tend to the personal aspects of becoming a therapist, identifying and supporting your areas of growth and self care, and as a consultant I support and help navigate the business aspects needed to manifest your plan as a fully licensed therapist. I am invested supporting you as you become a confident, flexible, and grounded clinician.

I am looking for associate therapists who know they want to build towards opening their own practice. Having built my business from the ground up and having worked in the corporate world, I offer practical guidance as to the ins and outs of the skills and fortitude needed to be a successful and ethical business owner.

I value the variety of experiences and backgrounds that people bring with them and strive to provide a supportive environment that encourages inquiry and mastery. I’m always pushing my growth edges and deepening my skills by attending trainings and seeking out diverse voices and experiences. I will challenge you to do the same and to participate in at least one major training during your time as an associate.

THEORETICAL ORIENTATION

My work is attachment and somatically oriented. I primarily draw from NARM (NeuroAffective Relational Model) and incorporate elements from my training in Somatic Experiencing, EMDR, and IPNB (Interpersonal Neurobiology). My couples/relationship work draws from Gottman and attachment theory as well as applied improv (yup) and I work with poly and kink relationships. I am a sex positive, LGBTQI ally, and all-inclusive therapist.

BACKGROUND

I earned my masters degree in counseling from St. Edwards University, I am a certified NARM Therapist, and took my supervisor training with Wingspan in 2016. My therapeutic career started as a grief therapist for Austin’s Center for Grief and Loss and time with Paladin, a dual diagnosis outpatient treatment center. Over the past 9 years, I have grown a thriving private practice in south Austin and founded Resilience Austin.

My areas of expertise include grief and loss, childhood trauma and complex PTSD, shame, relationship issues, and I specialize in working with adults of adoption.

LPC ASSOCIATE SUPERVISION – $325 a month

  •  4+ hours of supervision each month, alternating weekly between individual and group supervision.

    • Individual Supervision: one hour of one-on-one supervision.

    • Group Supervision: 2 hours in a group of peers. Currently there are two groups. One meets Thursdays at 10am, the second meets at 2pm on Fridays.

    • Occurs at my office, 2525 Wallingwood Drive, near Zilker Park, during covid we are meeting online until meeting in person can resume.
    • This schedule often offers more hours a month than required by our board and creates a buffer for days missed for illness and holidays.

  • Accessibility between sessions and emergency access when needed.

  • Abundance of resources and support. In fact, I start you off with workshops I have developed on HIPPA, writing ethical and efficient session notes, working with suicidality, and the basics of starting a private practice.

  • Private Practice Development. Discussions regarding private practice building strategies, opportunities, building relationships, and practical considerations.

  • Opportunity to work in a private practice environment.

RESILIENCE AUSTIN ASSOCIATES
I founded Resilience Austin to offer Associates the opportunity to work in a private practice environment as well as to grow the knowledge and experience of what it takes to thrive so that when you’re fully licensed, you’re ready to launch. Learn more about Resilience Austin
