For any of our services, supervisees will sign a supervision contract and a clinical development disclosure statement.

*Length in supervision will depend on the counselor’s motivation to complete required tasks, activities, and documentation. Clinical supervisors are gatekeepers to the professional clinical practice and may elect to not refer a counselor in training for a full or associate license.
