You Be You Counseling provides supervision for Associate Professional Counselors (APC) seeking licensure in Georgia (LPC) by an approved clinical supervisor (ACS). The practice philosophy and approach to supervision aligns with the counselor/counselor educator identity of the supervisor. These are rooted in constructivism, and include narrative, existential, Gestalt, and Adlerian theories and interventions. Supervision is approached from an integrated perspective, informed by the Discrimination Model of Supervision, in which the supervisor assumes various roles (e.g. counselor, consultant, teacher) that are most salient for the supervisee’s continued growth as a counselor. Additionally, supervision includes an intentional focus upon intersections of identities to inform the process of conceptualization and treatment planning.
Much like finding "the right fit" for a counselor, deciding on a supervisor can be a difficult process. As such, free consultations are available to supervisees to provide a space for questions, guidance, and whatever else may be needed to ensure they have the information to make the most informed decision on this next important step in their growth journey.
