At Mind Your Self Counseling, clinical supervision is provided by Owner and CEO Carla Groves, LCSW-S, and by our Clinical Director, Christina Marshall, LCSW-S. Please visit their therapy bios for more information about their clinical and leadership experience.
Our Supervision Philosophy
Supervision is a relationship between supervisor and supervisee in which the responsibility and accountability for the development of competence, demeanor, and ethical practice take place. The supervisor is responsible for providing direction to the Supervisee in applying social work theory, standardized knowledge, skills, competency, and applicable ethical content in the practice setting.
We believe that a professional clinical supervisor who has received specific training in supervision should facilitate professional growth of the supervisee through:
- Monitoring client welfare
- Encouraging compliance with legal, ethical, and professional standards
- Teaching therapeutic skills
- Providing regular feedback and evaluation
- Providing professional experiences and opportunities
We also believe that a supervisee has the right to work with a supervisor who is culturally sensitive and is able to openly discuss the influence of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, religion, and class on the clinical and supervision process.
At Mind Your Self Counseling, we strongly adhere to the standards mentioned above. Our mission is to develop the skill set of future clinicians and enhance their growth potential. We take pride in shaping clinicians to be culturally competent, theoretically sound, empathetic critical thinkers.
We offer individual and group supervision. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for rates.
Supervision sessions shall include a review of all cases, audiotapes, videotapes, and may include live supervision of actual sessions. The supervisee shall be encouraged to determine a theoretical orientation that can be used for conceptualizing and guiding work with clients. You can expect verbal feedback and/or informal evaluation during each supervisory session. The supervisee will meet with the supervisor face-to-face in our private practice setting to insure confidentiality.
We also have the ability to provide group clinical supervision at your site – this is often ideal when an agency, hospital, or organization has several LMSW level clinicians but doesn’t have the time or available supervisors on hand. Please contact us for more information.
Continuing Education (CEUs)
Mind Your Self is proud to offer several different Continuing Education classes that are NASW approved for CE credits for LCSW, LMSW, LMFT, and LPC. In 2021, we will be holding the following classes:
LCSW-S 3-CREDIT CONTINUING EDUCATION – ACTIVITIES
This class is intended to provide LCSW-S providers with the necessary 3-credit CEUs they need to keep their -S designation.
This is a pre-recorded course that meets criteria for the required 3 credits for the -S credential. It contains TAC updates as well as critical information useful for all supervisors. It is available online and can be started and stopped at your convenience. Each participant will leave this course with:

Blueprint For Developing a Comprehensive, Ethical, Bio-Psycho-Social Assessment
3 credit continuing education for LMSW, LCSW, LCSW-S, LPC, and LMFT
This course can be used as ETHICS, -S, or GENERAL CEU’S
Learn how to develop a fully integrated, culturally competent assessment that covers everything from background and history to presenting problems that will fully support your diagnoses by addressing severity, complexity, symptom prevalence and overlap through your descriptive narrative. Learn how to ask the hard questions through a culturally competent lens. Learn how to further support ethical diagnoses by using evidence-based screening tools that can also help case conceptualization and drive deeper understanding of your client, more individualized treatment planning and intervention, and truer diagnosing.
This course provides a blank template, a primer with questions to ask, and two completed examples to use as guides.
The course is $99 and well worth it!
