Additionally, Nikole is a LPC-Supervisor in the state of Texas and conducts supervision using a model that employs the roles of teacher, counselor, and consultant within a developmental framework. I will utilize the teaching role to assist you in learning a technique or a skill. The counselor role refers to the common therapeutic factors that are used to facilitate your personal growth in treatment-related issues where your specific thoughts or feelings are stimulated by the client and interfere with efficacious treatment. Supervision is a process whereby one person is designated to facilitate the professional development and therapeutic competence of another person or persons while safeguarding the clients of the supervisee. The consultant role is useful for case review and for discussion of areas of uncertainty. During our supervision session, I will help you to focus on the following areas in counseling: process, personalization, conceptualization, and administration. The process skills comprise counseling techniques. Personalization refers to those aspects of your experience that relate to you as a person, such as transference and countertransference. Conceptualization focuses on how you think about, plan for, and analyze your cases. My services as your clinical licensing supervisor will be rendered in a professional manner consistent with accepted ethical standards. Although I am unable to guarantee any specific results regarding your learning goals, we will work together to achieve the best possible results for you.
