Independent clinical consultation and/or supervision is available for individuals who are seeking support in their clinical work. Our clinical consultation and supervision can be a valuable resource for clinicians at any point in their careers and in a variety of work and employment contexts.
For instance, we work with a wide range of people from those who are recently graduated to those who have been in the counseling and service profession for decades. Indeed, we offer both individual and group consultation and/or supervision with one of our licensed mental health professionals to pre-licensed and licensed professionals alike.
We also work with clinicians who are in private/independent practice settings, in-patient settings, rehabilitation settings, academic settings, and community-based or agency settings.
Clinical Consultation is a non-supervisory, professional relationship where the clinical work of the consultee is the sole responsibility of the consultee. The focus of clinical consultation is to provide brief or specialized information and suggestions about a designated case or topic and not a whole caseload. In clinical consultation the consultee does not work under the consultant's license nor is the consultee beholden to follow any of the advise, suggestions, or recommendations of the consultant. Because the clinical consultant is not directly responsible for the consultee's caseload, regular supervision meetings are not required. All of the hours completed with the consultant can be counted toward licensing and/or other credentialing as allowed by each particular evaluation board.
Clinical Supervision is a professional relationship where the clinical work of the supervisee is under the direct, ongoing, and careful attention of the supervisor. It is the supervisee's responsibility to meet regularly with the supervisor and keep the supervisor apprised of all significant clinical developments happening in the supervisee's entire caseload. In clinical supervision the supervisee does work under the supervisor's license and therefore the supervisee is beholden to follow the directives and interventions set forth by the supervisor. Because the clinical supervisor is directly responsible for the supervisee's caseload, regular supervision meetings are required. All of the hours completed with the supervisor can be counted toward licensing and/or other credentialing as allowed by each particular evaluation board.
What is Group Clinical Supervision or Consultation?
Group Clinical Supervision or Consultation is an auxiliary relationship where the primary clinical work of all group participants is under the direct, ongoing, and careful supervision of an outside individual supervisor for unlicensed clinicians or the support of peer consultation for those who are already licensed. The focus of the group supervision or consultation experience is to provide additional support, direction, and feedback within the context of the supervision or consultation group.
Participants in groups at Noeticus can choose, in collaboration with the group supervisor or consultant, between group supervision or group consultation. Together they will determine which level of oversight is most appropriate for the needs and goals of the group participant. Because it is impossible to provide direct, ongoing, and careful attention to a participant's caseload in group supervision meetings alone, any unlicensed participants who wish to use group hours for licensure must also have an individual clinical supervisor.
All of the hours completed with a clinical supervisor can be counted toward licensing and/or other credentialing as allowed by each particular evaluation board (typically 30 hours can be counted toward licensure).
What Credentials Will My Consultation and/or Supervision Count Toward?
Clinical Consultants and Supervisor at Noeticus have a variety of credentials and it is important to select a consultant or supervisor who has the credentials you are seeking if you want your consultation/supervision experience to count towards such credentials.
Please note, however, that it is not necessary or even recommended to seek out consultation and/or supervision solely for the purpose of achieving a particular credential. Rather, we recommend selecting a consultant or supervisor who will actually support the type of personal and professional growth being sought by the consultee or supervisee.
Some of the credentials our consultants and supervisors can support include:
Licensed [Clinical] Psychology (LP/LCP)
Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT)
Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC)
Board Certified Dance/Movement Therapist (BC-DMT)
Certified Addiction Counselor (CAC)
Certified Group Psychotherapist (CGP)
Registered Somatic Movement Educator (RSME)
Registered Somatic Movement Therapist (RSMT)
Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS)
In addition, we may be able to help with others, so please let us know if you have any questions about working with any of our consultants or supervisors toward a specific credential.
