About Jen as a Supervisor
I am a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor (RPT-S), which is important to know if you are even thinking about obtaining a RPT credential in the future. As of 2020, The Association for Play Therapy will require that all of your Play Therapy hours be supervised by a RPT-S (I can supervise your non-play therapy related hours at the same time). I have also 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 supervisees. 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.
*Supervision may be done in person or via secure video conferencing.*
I offer individual supervision for therapists on a limited basis. My rate for supervision is $120/50 minutes. This is 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 or Supervision Groups
Group Supervision or Clinical Consultation (see below for explanation of Clinician Consultation vs Supervision) is a great way to obtain a variety of feedback, and will help to reduce overall supervision costs! I am happy to provide Group Supervision or Clinician Consultation to groups of 2-3 clinicians. It is up to you to to put together a group of 2-3 clinicians.
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: $150 / 1.5 hour session (fee remains the same, regardless of number of people in your group)
If you have additional questions please contact me at email@example.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!*
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.
