About Jen as a Supervisor

I have completed 32 hours of coursework towards the Accredited Clinical Supervisor (ACS) credential. While this is not required in Colorado, I take my role as a supervisor very seriously and want to be able to offer the very best of services to all of my clients. When considering who you want to have a supervisor, it is important to look at their practice specialties, level of education and training, theoretical orientation(s) and simply their personality to make sure they are the best fit for you. This is a relationship that will be ongoing for quite a while in most cases, so you do want to have someone you feel comfortable being very honest with. Please see below for an explanation of the different supervisory/consultation options that I offer. 

Individual Supervision

I offer individual supervision for therapists on a limited basis. My rate for supervision is $100/50 minutes. This is significantly lower than my regular session fees because while supervision is an investment in yourself and your work as a therapist, I understand that because it is a requirement for licensure it can also be a financial stressor when you are just beginning your journey as a therapist. I've been there! Please contact me to discuss what you are looking for and to determine if we may be a good fit.  

LPC Clinical Consultation Group

Are you looking for general group supervision hours in a more structured and educational format? In this group we will have opportunities for case consultation (while protecting client confidentiality), professional development, individual growth as a therapist and support. 

This is an open group, but space is very limited in order to uphold quality supervision in a group setting. To be notified of meeting dates and times please fill this out. A group will be offered twice per month - with registration closing 48 hours before the group. Additional information will be requested prior to your first group. 

In Colorado you may count 30 hours of group supervision towards your supervision requirements for LPC licensure. All pre-licensed participants who wish to use their hours towards licensure must also be under individual supervision. This type of clinical consultation group meets the requirements for group supervision for licensure. 

Fees: $60 / 2 hour session

If you have additional questions please contact me at jennifer@realisticserenity.com

I'm looking forward to working with you!

Child/Adolescent Clinical Consultation Group

This group is for clinicians working with children and adolescents in their practice. It is an open group that meets monthly. It is less structured than the LPC Clinical Consultation Group (see above) and is intended to be a place to share cases (while protecting client confidentiality) and receive feedback. 

*this group is currently on hold, but will be starting up again soon!*

Practicing Practice

If you are a mental health professional considering private practice, or have already started one, this group is for you! I am fortunate to have a thriving private practice now, but it was a lot harder than I had anticipated and did not look at all like how I had planned it! In this informal, open group we will share our success as well as failures, swap tips, brainstorrn new strategies and offer support. This group meets monthly for 1.5 hours. If you would like to be notified of ongoing meeting times and dates, please fill this out.  Fees: $30/group. 

*please note that the hours obtained in this group cannot be counted as supervision for licensure - if you are in need of supervision hours for licensure, please refer to the sections above for Individual Supervision or LPC Clinical Consultation Group*

What is the Difference Between Supervision and Clinical Consultation?

Good question! The difference is that in a consultation setting I won't know identifying information about your clients, and you're in no way obligated to follow my suggestions, as may be the case in a supervisory relationship. In a supervision setting, you are practicing under my license, which carries an additional level of responsibility on my part to ensure that you are following best practices. I will have information about your clients, your clients will have my name and we will meet on a regular basis. This is a required stepping stone for all therapists pursuing licensure in the state of Colorado.
