Clinical Supervision For LMSW and LPC-Associates

No Supervision Fee

No Minimum Caseload Requirement

No Out-of-pocket Payment Required

In the state of Texas in order to obtain your LPC or LCSW clinical license you must complete 3000 hours of clinically relevant work under clinical supervision.

When choosing a supervisor it’s important to first consider where your clinical strengths lie, where you would like to grow as a practitioner, what theoretical and development orientations are meaningful for you, and where you want to ultimately be professionally.

What can I say; after 3 months of being an associate I had a caseload of 15-20 clients. I averaged between 5-7 referrals a week from the practice and I’m currently doing exceptional well in my career. I value growth both clinically and professionally and I have gotten that in spades.

M.C.

You will be cutting your clinical teeth at this stage of your career, which is why choosing a clinical supervisor will play an impactful role in your career, your clinical advancement, and can be one of your strongest advocates related to your future success.

Clinical supervision is best defined as a formal and professional working alliance that is generally between a more experienced and a less experienced clinician. In this alliance, the supervisee’s clinical work is reviewed and reflected upon, counter-transference experiences are explored, and the supervisee’s clinical skill sets are developed and enriched with a variety of aims. These include improving the supervisee’s efficacy with clients, protecting client welfare, providing clinical support and growth for the supervisee, and supporting the supervisee’s professional development.

The opportunity offered through Louis Laves-Webb, LCSW, LPC-S & Associates truly unique for three reasons:

Our intention is to nurture our associates’ clinical development while supporting the critical development of skills and knowledge necessary to owning a successful business. We greatly value autonomy and hire dependable and responsible individuals. This allows us to step out of your way with burdensome administrative tasks and requirements, and focus on what matters most– your development.

It’s based on you experiencing EXACTLY what private practice is like from top to bottom. You are truly empowered to create your ideal practice and will gain the skills, experience, and wisdom to make it last for years to come.

It includes clinical supervision and business coaching

The goal of our supervision practice is to increase your clinical skill set and help you create a thriving practice.

“I value continuing to develop as a supervisor. 40% appears to be getting out of your way, 40% includes perpetually cultivating more empathy, and 20% includes providing feedback, guidance, and compassionate communication.”

– Louis Laves-Webb, LCSW, LPC-S

What We Look for in a Great Candidate

practice

Professional Experience

Although psychotherapy experience is looked upon favorably, we are primarily looking for individuals with some professional experience under their belt and a passion for practicing depth-oriented clinical work within a private practice setting.

memory

Growth Mindset

We are looking for an individual with a substantial growth mindset and a practitioner who enjoys creativity, is insatiably curious about the human condition, and is open-spirited.

emotion

Motivation

We are looking for an individual who is eager to build their own brand, is resourceful, and is a self-motivated professional

Ideal candidates are those who are driven, deeply curious and inquisitive, and have an appreciation for depth-oriented approaches to psychotherapy and healing. We find that associates with prior careers and life experiences excel in our practice and supervision model. 

“Assisting with healing can take the courage of a warrior and the gentleness of a feather”

Application & Interview Process

Our interview process includes a written questionnaire, a phone interview, and a one hour interview with Louis and Kalee. Additional steps may be included. Our aim is to be as transparent as possible throughout the process so that you are able to feel comfortable, ask any questions that you have along the way, and that we can genuinely get know one another.

1

Application & Questionaire

After submitting your resume and cover letter, you will be asked to complete a written questionnaire. This is an opportunity for us to get a sense of what your wanting, your goals, and to see if there is potential alignment.

2

Phone Interview & Clinical Case

You will then be contacted by our clinical director (Kalee Gower, LCSW) and will participate in a phone interview with her. Upon completion of this interview, you will be provided with a clinical case to look over so that you can discuss it clinically at your final interview.

3

Final Interview

Finally, you will meet with Louis Laves-Webb, LCSW, LPC-S and Kalee Gower, LCSW where we will ask you some further questions about your approach to counseling, experience, and theoretical leanings, and will be asked to discuss your thoughts and ideas about the case example. Additionally, you will have a chance to ask us any questions you may have.

What does the process look like for online and in-person supervision?

Due to Covid-19, we have needed to pivot recently to online supervision. This has actually been a relatively simple transition and we conduct supervision over a social media platform. We are still conducting both individual and group supervision.

How do supervisees get the most out of clinical supervision?

Supervision can be best utilized by approaching supervision from a calm and curious place; it takes many years to become a truly skilled clinician and so there’s no sense of urgency, you genuinely have plenty of time. You may want to think about one or two cases that you would like to discuss so that you can bring these to supervision. Supervision is a co-created process so preemptively consider what skills you would like to increase, ideas you would like to explore further, or clinical learning you would like to share. Lastly, approach supervision with the understanding and openness that supervision may include: present moment awareness, parallel process experiences, and reflection of various relational parts of supervision, all in the spirit of deepening and further developing your own clinical skill set and presence.
