Whether you're a supervisor or not, understanding The Counseling Landscape is critical to your success. Every counselor needs to arm themselves with as much knowledge as possible in order to "Protect, Equip, and Defend" what you've worked so hard to build. And don't forget about protecting your family!
If you're a Supervisor....many Supervisors feel ill-equipped to teach the cornerstone content to their associates because they often lack proper training themselves, and accessible resources. This morning's session is more than a jump-start. It'll give you the confidence to teach your associates and help them make good decisions while in their agency settings.
The Workshop Agenda...
The counseling profession landscape has changed drastically in the past 10-15 years. As a counselor you're responsible not only for protecting your practice, license, and your family, but if you're a Supervisor you have the added responsibility of fully mentoring associates.
The Counseling Landscape is designed to give you the big picture and provide a platform to work from. In this foundational discussion Kathleen will pull it all together for you and give you a roadmap to follow to help you check off all the boxes and stay safe. Then once you know what a complete curriculum looks like (we've put one together for you!), Supervisors can utilize The PracticeMentors Academy to teach it to the next generation!
Subsequent sessions in this workshop will also deal with many of the major topics in "The Landscape".
What Your Peers Say...
"I enjoyed learning details of state laws and how it's part of the BHEC and LPC Rules. It's very detailed so you can know all the rules to help yourself and your clients. I like how detailed all the info is and knowing what specific rules are of utmost importance."
--Kavita Hamilton, LPC Frisco, TX
"Structural, formal, a firehose! Kathleen's focus is great. Phillip's heart is wonderful."
--Andrew Siefert, LPC-S Celinda, TX
"These are exactly the topics that are missing in other trainings. Kathleen and Phillip are the two best mentors a practice owner could have. They care about you professionally and personally and both have years of experience. I am so glad they are both now a part of my professional support system."
Jamie Williams LPC-S, (Katy, TX)
"The Counseling Landscape offers a thorough, practical review of BHEC, the Boards, and Texas Codes. I like the tag team approach and getting Kathleen and Phillip's input on the various issues. The notebook as fabulous, a wonderful resource for future use."
Gina Carter, LPC (Frisco, TX)
"The amount of work involved in gathering and organizing all of the state codes and BHEC Rules was massive. Well done!"
--Steve Turley, LPC-S Corinth, TX
"The Counseling Landscape Series (workshops) are amazing. Kathleen & Phillip are a dynamic team and provide a thorough presentation about ethics, supervision, and starting/maintaining a thriving practice. The materials alone are well worth the money."
--Malinda Fasol, LPC-S Ft Worth
"Oh, my! In-person was so much better than online (I've done both!) The hospitality was awesome! Every licensed professional should take these courses. The information is so useful in understanding what is truly required to stay in compliance."
--Tammy Kothe-Ramsey, LPC San Antonio
"I really enjoyed the virtual (attendance option) and felt included throughout, despite not being present in person. The lighting was great and I could hear well even on Zoom.
Kathleen and Phillip were wonderful hosts and incredible to learn from. They cover the much needed material you don't learn in graduate school and demonstrate a passion for assisting clinicians in creating powerful counseling practices that aim to ensure effective client care, and remain compliant on the State and Federal levels."
--Alana McGraw, LPC (Irving, TX)
"The trainings with PracticeMentors are exceptional! If you want to be prepared with the most up-to-date information related to practicing in the counseling field, consider these workshops a worthwhile investment. Kathleen and Phillip are the best--helpful, informative, and supportive."
--Olivia Wedel, LPC (Euless, TX)
Based on the description of the Supervisor Refresher course, I had high expectations.
I have been a supervisor over 10 years and have attended many refresher courses. This course
far exceeded any expectation I had! Kathleen and Phillip have put together a course far superior
to any of the others I have attended. This course will challenge you to step up your program and
to push yourself to become an excellent supervisor. This in turn will allow you to train and equip new
supervisees to become excellent counselors. If you are committed to making sure the
counseling profession continues to be a superior profession then this course is for you!
--LeeAnn Heath, LPC-S (Corinth, TX)
"This wasn't just an update...it was a new, refreshing look at existing, as well as emerging, information. Thank you for sharing your expertise with us. I expect to be a better supervisor and practitioner as a result of today's experience."
--Bobbie Burks, LPC-S (Tyler, TX)
"The networking and ability to interact and ask questions is priceless because I can tailor what I'm learning to my practice. The printed materials, website and resources allow me to review the information again and again so I can actually learn and retain what was presented."
--Lisa Heath Evans, LPC-S (Forney, TX)
"Awesome training! Very informative.
Great experience for both new and experienced clinicians."
--Komeka Biddle, LPC
"Kathleen is an incredible advocate for mental health professionals. Thank you, for sharing your personal experiences in our field. I appreciate your integrity and due diligence in attending the Board Meetings on our behalf. Your perspective is truly helpful."
--Tiffany Derrick, LPC
I enjoyed Kathleen and Phillip's knowledge, expertise, and sense of humor.
I was well informed and entertained!
--Pamelea Chappelle-Lyons, LPC-S (Anna, TX)
Out of all the Supervisor Refresher courses I have taken, this by far was the best.
I am not sure I have anything I would suggest for improvement.
--Shelbie Michaels, LPC-S (Frisco, TX)
This was very helpful and just the right amount of (motivation)!
--Russell Baxter, LPC-S (Colleyville, TX)
"It makes my teacher-heart happy to see the things NOT taught in grad school put together in a deliverable format. I think you've got it covered."
--Dawn-Petrice Youngs, LPC-S (Cypress, TX)
"I think this workshop was very well organized and the presenters are interesting and really care about what they are doing. This is an excellent workshop for new supervisors (as well as the veterans and non-supervisors, too). I like the focus on compliance and regulations."
--Cheryl Dielman, LPC-S, LCSW-S (Ft Worth)
Beyond thorough and informative! I always learn so much and I'm always amazed at how much I didn't know prior to the workshop. I like that we have a detailed, organized binder to follow but it does not come across as scripted. The interaction among participants with Kathleen and Phillip is equally informative. I think it is thorough and very timely information. So much is not taught in graduate school, so counselors enter the field with unrealistic expectations. I love the detailed information broken up into categories that relate to The Counseling Landscape. I think this is a valuable tool for supervisors and supervisors in training. Kathleen and Phillip are exceptional trainers that provide thorough, detailed, and timely information related to relevant topics in our profession. If you are serious about investing in your development as a counselor or supervisor, go to their training workshops!
--Olivia Wedel, LPC, Euless/Frisco, TX
Well organized, easy to understand and implement with my supervisees. Very practical. Best refresher course for supervisors I have ever attended. I love the information presented as a curriculum for supervision! I will recommend PracticeMentors.us and this course to all of my colleagues who are supervisors."
--Larry M. Barber, LPC-S, Garland, TX
I will use everything we learned today. I'm going to put my associates to work! So much work has gone into this. Very organized, and The Academy will make my life so much easier! I just opened my private practice and have been a supervisor for about 5 years and discovered things at this workshop that I didn't know before; things that are incredibly important for me to know."
--Cathy Lamb, LPC-S, Ft. Worth
The subject matter is vital to what we do in the counseling profession and for the operation of a practice. I was engaged throughout the entire presentation because the presenters do a phenomenal job. So good, and so organized! I appreciate the supervisory resources they make available through "The Academy". Compared to the other supervisory training experiences I've had this one has the most current and relevant information. I'll be back!"
Ami Evans, LPC-S, Grapevine, TX
Loved the dual presentation between Kathleen and Phillip. I love the use of graphics throughout the workshop to present information. That's a core value for me. Very helpful. Access to The Academy is going to be a huge help, having consolidated information readily available to augment my supervisory curriculum!"
--Chip Sutherland, LPC, Frisco, TX
Money well spent! Invaluable info and resources.
--Tricia Kline, LPC (Dallas, TX)
This workshop gave me the tools I need to fine-tune my practice. Kathleen is very personable and knowledgeable and presents the info in a clear, practical manner.

Enjoyed the private and very personal workshop. Tons of information provided.

Good information and good presentation! Was very engaging which helps build my network as well.

Kathleen is professional, highly knowledgeable, and a dynamic speaker. She is/stays current with Texas Ethics and goes, "above and beyond" in sharing her knowledge about BHEC, LPC and LMFT rules, and the regulatory environment (HIPAA, etc).
--Malinda Fasol. LPC-S (Ft. Worth, TX)
After completing this course I feel much better equipped to help intern/associates achieve success.
