Supervision

Council for Relationships’ American Association for Marriage and Family Therapists (AAMFT) Accredited Post Graduate Certificate Program in Marriage and Family Therapy offers supervision for marriage and family therapists, professional counselors, and social workers needing licensed supervisors to be eligible for licensure. The program also offers supervision for sex therapists seeking American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists (AASECT) Certification. Therapists interested in obtaining supervision through the Post Graduate Certificate Program must have access to clients in a mental health setting other than Council for Relationships.

  • Supervision by LMFT and AAMFT Approved Supervisors available for clinicians seeking MFT Licensure
  • AASECT Certified Supervisors available for clinicians seeking AASECT Clinical Membership
  • Other licensed supervisors available for mental health professionals seeking licensure as LCSWs and/or LPCs

Application Process

Please fill out the Clinical Supervision Request Form, making sure that you have clearly indicated your supervision preferences.

Arrangement

Supervision is held weekly for one or two hours and can take place at a Council for Relationships office location or at the supervisor’s private office. Supervisors will sign all necessary documentation required for verification of supervision hours during that time period.

Requests for group supervision will be accommodated whenever possible. If two or more supervisees are available during the time slots indicated and at the location requested, we will arrange group supervision. If, however, there are not enough supervisees available, you will be offered the choice of purchasing individual supervision or postponing supervision until the next cycle that group supervision may be available.

For licensure, 50% of clinical hours must be supervised by a professional who has the license that is sought by the supervisee (LMFT (AAMFT-approved supervisor), LCSW, LPC). In order for all clinical hours to count towards licensure, one hour/week of supervision is required for every 10 clinical hours/week. To count clinical hours in excess of 10/week, 2 weekly hours of supervision are required. Please inform us of your desired license, and of the number of clinical hours/week for which you desire supervision,  so that we can work with you to assure that you will be able to count all of your hours.
