We provide supervision, but its screening process is rigorous. Not everyone is fit to be a therapist. We see too many poorly experienced/trained therapists in the field. You as a clinician may be encouraged to have your own therapy to be a better clinician as well as a better person. Wounded healers need to be healed before they can heal others. We will encourage/push you to grow and mature as a person who is the foundation as a therapist. This is what therapists ask clients to do. We need to practice what we preach. If therapists cannot, we would do harm to our clients than help. The training and health care system needs to improve. We do not accept interns.
Please notice that we do not fill out paperwork (FLMA, eligibility for other services) and/or release clinical record only after a few meetings, so please do not refer clients just for an assessment and/or paperwork. We do not take these referrals. We would fill out/release the paperwork and/or clinical record only as part of ongoing services and when it is deemed clinically appropriate by our clinicians.
