So you graduated now what!! I know this process can ignite a variety of emotions. As an associate you may be struggling to find a site to obtain your hours, or maybe you don't know where to get started but you know you need a supervisor. I am here to help. Some common questions you may have:
What do I do?
Contact me to schedule an interview. I know this sounds formal however it is important for you and I to make sure it is a good fit for both of us. The interview process allows us to get to know each other and provide some insight into expectations that I have of supervisee's and what supervisee's can expect from me. We will complete the necessary paperwork and you will send it into the board.
How much is this going to cost me?
When considering a supervisor it is important to consider what you are looking for, remember this is an investment into your growth as a clinician, career and possibly your business. Supervision is held weekly virtually and in accordance with Texas Licensing Board. The following are cost options for supervision:
$125 per hour if you do not have your own practice and working at another site other than RHCC (business coaching is not included).
$150 per hour if you have your own practice and are not volunteering at RHCC, (includes business coaching).
Free: If you have your own practice and volunteer at RHCC (required to see at least 6 clients a week at RHCC and includes business coaching).
Free: If you do not have your own practice and volunteer at RHCC (required to see at least 5 clients a week at RHCC, supervisee do not have their own practice, and business coaching is not included)
Business coaching please inquire regarding additional fees and options
When do you have supervision?
Supervision is held on Monday's and Friday (subject to change)
If time is needed that is outside of my business hours (such as a Saturday or evening sessions the fee is $150 for no business owners and $200 for business owners)
Group supervision is on the 2nd and 3rd Monday of the month (subject to change)
Where do I even start with paperwork?
You'll need to have a supervisor contract in place in order to submit your paperwork for your license. (see link: https://www.bhec.texas.gov/texas-state-board-of-examiners-of-professional-counselors/applying-for-a-license/index.html#lpc-as) Once the contract is signed and submitted we wait until the board approves your license. Then you can start seeing clients and accumulating your hours.
How do I contact you?
If you would like to see if we are a good fit and would like an interview please submit your resume and a Monday or Friday you are available and I will get back to you regarding scheduling a virtual interview.
