Supervision

Claire and Juliet are both Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Supervisors and would be happy to supervise LCMHCAs as they work toward full licensure! 

“The LCMHCS license is an independent, unrestricted license. This license supersedes the LCMHC license. The LCMHCS license allows a person to practice counseling and grants approval by the Board to provide clinical supervision to LCMHCAs. LCMHCSs have at least 5 to 8 years of professional counseling experience and have completed the minimum education requirements in clinical supervision as approved by the Board, which includes 45 hours of approved continuing education by a national organization like the American Counseling Association or the National Board for Certified Counselors.”

Please send Claire and Juliet a message on the Contact form to request rates for individual, triadic, or group supervision!

FAQ

There are so many wonderful choices out there, right?! Please read more about us to to make sure our experience aligns with your presenting concerns. You’ll also want to get a good feel for our personalities and style since a good fit is a must, so contact us and we can chat. Us therapists don’t take it personally if it’s not the right match, so please be honest!

It can definitely feel intimidating to meet with a total stranger and let them in on your life story. It is our job to make you feel as comfortable as possible and keep confidentiality. But, it is not just a job to us. We truly feel honored to walk alongside you in this journey and we wouldn’t do this work if we didn’t care deeply. We just ask that you commit to our work together, remain open and honest, and trust the process. This means that even though every session may not have an Oprah “aha!” moment, this work of processing, learning, and self discovery is all building towards something awesome!

That’s hard to say without knowing your story and meeting with you. We typically say when someone is motivated, let’s jump on that and meet weekly to gain traction. Our goal is to work ourselves out of a job! You will feel equipped to move to less frequently along the way and you and your therapist will continually assess this progress.

We choose to be out of network with insurance companies so as to avoid their “red tape” and involvement in your treatment. This means you self pay upfront at the time of service and then you can submit for reimbursement. Call your insurance company to determine if they have out-of-network benefits. If they do, we can provide a Super Bill (please note that this requires a diagnosis code.)

The million dollar question!

EMDR is hard to explain and understand, but having done it as a client and now as a clinician for several years, Juliet is a firm believer in its benefits! She likes to say that it’s like a system update for your brain — to send any negative memories/thoughts/sensations that are stuck to where they belong. It doesn’t erase memories or traumas, but it definitely decreases their intensity and resolves negative beliefs by replacing them with more positive and adaptive ones. Clients will feel distress relief, healing, reduced physiological symptoms, and empowerment. EMDR is proven to help with grief & loss, abuse, traumas, phobias, low self-esteem, attachment issues, family disruptions, upsetting memories, PTSD, and food issues. Find more info here.

This is how all of us therapists start! A LCMHCA is provisionally licensed clinical mental health counselor associate who has completed a master’s level counseling program, passed necessary national examinations, and is currently working toward full licensure by completing a minimum of 3,000 of supervised clinical counseling hours.
