Welcome To Our Home!

"We believe that helping other people live their best lives is the highest calling a person can have. In fact, we believe it is the calling of every human born, we just feel very blessed to be in a profession that allows us to do that all day, every day. We also believe it is our mission to help you do that very thing, to the best of your abilities.

Several years ago, we became acutely aware of three things. First, in the past few decades the counseling landscape has changed dramatically on many levels, and our standard counselor training programs have failed to keep pace.

Two, future associates have no good way to find supervisors. They're launched from the academic platforms with no training in their search for an equally-yoked supervisor.

Third, a systematic approach to teaching new associates is sorely needed. Our supervisory training is trapped in 1985, focusing on 40 hours of antiquated clinical research. Then we launch them, unarmed, into the field with no clear set of next steps, teaching systems, or curriculum materials.

The counseling profession, and every licensee within it, is in trouble and most counselors don't realize the depth of the risk they face. Practicementors.us exists to address these issues and help you take your practice to the next level."

Protect

Know how to properly set up your business on many different levels, with the help of professionals, in order to protect yourself. It's not enough to rent a space and hang your shingle.  Dig your well before you need the water.

Equip

Developing solid practice procedures is critical not only to providing a good client experience but, protecting yourself from, "Things That Go Bump In The Night". The cheapest, quickest options are almost never the best.

Defend

It isn’t a matter of “if” something unfortunate will happen, it's “when”. If you have prepared properly you should be able to defend yourself, but you'll still need to know what to do! Are you sure you're ready?
