LPC Supervision

Megan provides LPC Supervision for LPC Associates practicing at a variety of sites. Megan believes the supervisory relationship, based in trust, is key to both the personal and professional development of new counseling professionals. She is most passionate about developing counselors that are trauma-informed, trauma-sensitive, and trauma-trained. Megan’s goal by the end of the supervision process is that her supervisee’s have felt support and been provided with resources to be competent and confident trauma counselors.A trauma-informed counselor will have knowledge of the growing body of multi-disciplinary research, which demonstrates that traumatic experiences throughout our lifespan shape the development of our brain, mind, and body.A trauma-sensitive counselor will actively incorporate skills and practices into their interactions with others, especially when communicating. They create an atmosphere that promotes safety, trust, and empowerment for their clients.A trauma-trained counselor will have additional continuing education trainings in alternative methods that are considered promising by leading researchers for treating acute, chronic, and/or complex trauma.LPC Associates are welcome to reach out to Megan by email to request a consultation to discuss goals for Supervision.
