Effective clinical supervision is more than just meeting a licensure requirement. It’s an important part of professional development and an opportunity to refine clinical skills, self-assessment, self-awareness, and professional identity.

Our supervisors have successfully completed a Clinical Supervision Academy curriculum and maintain Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS) certification or other advanced Clinical Supervisory Training. These professionals can help you assess your needs from clinical supervision and tailor your sessions to effectively address your goals.

Supervision For Non-Independently Licensed Clinicians
In addition to the above, you can expect regular, professional, and informed supervision that includes case conceptualization, clinical documentation training, documentation reviews, professional development, and approved supervision hours toward your independent license.

Supervision For Independently Licensed Clinicians
Independently licensed clinicians are not required to have regular clinical supervision to maintain their licensure. Even so, many top therapists choose to receive supervision in order to support ongoing development, consult on challenging cases, and access additional perspectives for their practice. Supervision or clinical consultation can occur on a regular schedule or on an as-needed basis.
