Choosing the right supervisor for your LPC internship is critical to your professional development. Annette is invested in helping you become an ethical and competent therapist.
The right supervisor
Helps you grow.
With Annette you gain a supervior who has seen a lot of different scenarios. She has been licensed as an LPC for over 10 years in several different states (a military spouse for 10 years) and 6 years of experience in the field before becoming a licensed practioner. Mrs. Kerr completed 3 years of licensed counseling before deciding to become a stay-at-home mom. She has worked in a variety of setting from in-patient hospitals, community mental health centers with seriously mentally ill people, residential care facilities for children, and private practice settings.
The IDeal Intern
The question is not only is Annette a right fit for you but also are you a right fit for her.
Her ideal intern is:
1) A professional who has a strong ethical and moral foundation, and will read & follow all LPC Rules.
2) Accepts responsibility, is organized, exhibits commitment to time management, & follows through with recommendations and documentation corrections.
3) Someone who is respectful of the supervisor-supervisee relationship
4) Someone who has effective time management skills.
5) Eager to learn beyond the classroom and willing to ask meaningful questions.
6) Dedicated to the counseling profession and a desire for professional growth.
7) Someone who is willing to commit to at least 6 months of supervision.
8) Someone who understands the supervisor-supervisee relationship can be cancelled for any reason by either party at any time if it is not working out.
9) Someone who has obtained a stable work site to gain the 3000 hours of supervised work hours and is not looking for a worksite with a LPC-S on site.
If you feel we might be a good fit, please send Annette a copy of the following:
A copy of your resume or curriculum vita
Three professional references: These references can include employers, practicum supervisors, faculty members, or others who have worked with you closely in your graduate training.
A copy of your transcripts
A copy of your professional liability insurance.
Then, let's set up an interview!
