LPC Supervision with Dr. Marty Lerman
Congratulations on graduating with your Master’s Degree and passing the National Counselor Exam. You are now ready to move on the next step in the pursuit of your career path -- the final part that is going to fulfill your goals with a kind of education and learning unlike anything like what you’ve experienced so far. Clinical supervision will stretch your knowledge into practical application, present you with challenges, open up your consciousness into new awareness, and hopefully create a burning desire to become the best counselor your imagination can imagine.
In my more than 30 years of clinical practice, university teaching, training, and author I remain honored to work with counselor interns. I commit myself to instill within each intern not just the skills from doing clinical practice, but also the internalization of values and ethics that underlies our work.
You will learn:
- How to conceptualize the client’s presentation and needs by focusing on behavior, attitude, emotion, learning, verbal, and non-verbal disclosure;
- How to trust your intuitive judgment, going beyond your intellect knowledge;
- When to release the confining nature of theoretical styles expand awareness of your own mind;
- How to trust your power of observation in formulating treatment plans and establishing insight about the client.
- When and how to set clinical boundaries that facilitate client growth and security.
- How to develop confidence in your abilities without negative ego intrusion.
As you will note from other sections of the website, in addition to my formal education, I am certified in several specialty areas including: sex therapy, hypnotherapy, medical psychotherapy, and palliative care/grief counseling. I am a faculty member of the International Certification Board of Clinical Hypnotherapists (ICBCH) and Master Practitioner of Neuro-linguistic Programing (NLP). You will be exposed to these specialty areas and encouraged to develop your own areas of specialization that will help define your own uniqueness as a counselor.
I have worked as a counselor/therapist within schools, colleges, universities, hospitals, public agencies, community mental health clinics, group practices, and my own private practice. In addition to expanding clinical skills, you will also learn how to market and present yourself to referring sources, how to give fun and anxiety-free presentations and demonstrations, and how to function as a contributing member of a respected team of professional clinicians.
The practice typically takes on one in-house intern and several supervision-only interns. The in-house internship is currently filled. There are supervision-only internships available. We will be interviewing candidates starting the mid-point of the current semester.
