  • Quality patient care starts with quality clinical supervision and the professional development of our registered interns!

    Women Empowerment Counseling offers clinical supervision to Registered Mental Health Counselor Interns in the state of FL. Read below to learn more, and check out our resources page with helpful links for graduate students and registered interns.

    Quality Supervision

    At WEC, we are passionate about professional development and will commit to see your through your intern journey toward licensure! Our mission statement is, “Quality patient care starts with quality clinical supervision & the professional development of our registered interns!”

    In a private-pay supervision setting, you choose your supervisor based on their qualifications and supervision style. Often, in agency or employment settings, your supervisor is selected for you or your options are very limited.

    Commitment & Support

    Our private group supervision allows you to network within our local community of mental health professionals and expand your knowledge through your peers’ experiences & their professional connections.

    At WEC, we guarantee to be a part of your professional journey & see you through to licensure! We are more than “a once a week meeting”; and offer fluidity, connection, & support in between supervision sessions.

    When you receive supervision in an agency setting or through your employer, staff turnover is very common, which results in poor continuity and will cause a delay in your licensure.

    Timeliness & Efficiency

    From our initial consultation where we discuss supervision to the completion of your supervision & application for licensure, WEC provides timely & efficient follow through.

    At WEC, there are no strings attached! Whatever your life circumstance, if you’re no longer able to move forward with supervision, we will ensure the Board required verification of supervision documentation is submitted in a timely & efficient manner. A delay from your QS WILL delay your licensure.

    Agencies often require you to sign a contract agreeing to continue employment with them post-licensure in order to receive “free supervision”. If you resign, often you are required to submit payment for the supervision you received regardless of the reason for termination. This will cause a delay in your licensure.

    Methodology

    Group supervision is our preferred methodology as we believe in the power of groups! In a group setting, as the intern, you have the opportunity to gain insight and perspective through the exposure of your peers’ experiences allowing for feedback and thoughtful discussion. We also believe that individual supervision has its benefits and will be recommended based upon the individual intern’s needs and when additional support is needed.

    In supervision, we will address clinical concerns related to your patient(s) including but not limited to treatment planning, methods of therapeutic interventions, and diagnosis & pathology while also addressing common professional concerns including but not limited to compassion fatigue, countertransference, and ethics & boundaries. We utilize a strengths-based approach to build upon your natural abilities to enhance your counseling skills.

    What our interns have to say:

    “Nicole is an excellent supervisor and provides quality supervision to her registered interns. She is compassionate, holds the highest ethical boundaries, extremely knowledgeable, and stays updated on current trends and research. Nicole was my manager for a few years and has been by supervisor for pre-licensure for about a year now. Before I was not confident with my clinical skills and didn’t know what therapy entails. Nicole is passionate about professional development and helped me transform to be the best version of myself, not just as a clinician but also as a human being – as I know she does with clients too. I trust Nicole completely as my qualified supervisor and recommend her as a therapist as well.”
