A supervisory relationship is different from a therapeutic relationship within counseling. The primary purpose of supervision is to review practitioners' work for the increase in therapeutic skills, application of theory into clinical practice, and problem solve to prevent harm within client care. Firefly supervisors seek to support ethical clinical practice.
All supervisors within Firefly continue to seek consultation and supervision of their own. It is our belief that supervision and consultation with a panel of colleagues who are experts within the field should last across the professional lifespan. Supervision does not end simply because one has reached licensing; ethical practice and self-care for the clinician are supported within a supervision process.
Clinical supervision at Firefly is provided primarily through the philosophy of a developmental model. This includes a sequence of hierarchical stages of increasing skill and awareness as knowledge and practice build. We support both individual and group supervision practice to allow the opportunity for clinicians to discuss theory and practice both one on one and within a setting of their peers for additional feedback and perspectives.
We offer clinical supervision towards license and credentialing as a licensed professional counselor (LPC), licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and registered play therapist (RPT) or registered play therapy supervisor (RPT-S).
You may contact the clinical director, Michelle Pliske, at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or at 503-915-3737 if you are interested in pursuing clinical supervision towards licensing at Firefly.
