Clinical Supervision

Master Level Licensure Supervision

Individual and group supervision is available for those working toward licensure. We can provide all hours necessary for individual supervision for LPC (Caitlin, & Sara) and LMFT (Nitasha) and half hours for LCSW. If you are interested in receiving supervision from one of our supervisors for your licensure, please reach out using email [email protected] or phone 267-495-4951.


Practicum/Internship Supervision

We have LMFT and LPC licensed clinicians who can work with you in your journey to becoming a master’s or doctorate-level psychotherapist. You will get one hour of individual supervision with your assigned supervisor and two hours of group supervision with a supervisor and all other practicum/intern students. We have a Quality Assurance Coordinator who is dedicated to helping you perfect the craft of client files (e.g., progress notes, treatment plans, assessments, closing letters, etc.). You are also responsible for writing blog posts for the website designed to help you articulate skills and tools to clients. You will have time to research and collaborate with peers on any ideas and thoughts for your Self-Help Tips. To apply to our practicum/internship program, please do so on our work with us page. 

Meet our Supervisors

Caitlin Siekerka:

As a clinical supervisor, my role is to support and guide you through your clinical internship experience. My hope is to provide a warm and inviting atmosphere to help you feel comfortable asking questions, gain and implement helpful feedback and tools, and build your skills as a therapist. I use a variety of models and techniques including CBT, DBT, and mindfulness, and can help you build more skills to apply these and other techniques in your sessions. While I am here to assist you in your work, I may also challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and try new techniques or approaches with your clients that we can practice and process in our supervision meetings. I understand how intimidating and scary it can sometimes be to work with new clients and take the leap into a therapist role! I will be here to support you through this. I’m still learning from my clients, too, and believe that the more questions we ask and the feedback we get and give, the better we can grow and help empower our clients to overcome their stressors and challenges.


Nitasha Strait:

Nitasha is an AAMFT-approved supervisor. She works from Bernard’s Discrimination Model where the supervisee takes the lead in their supervision. She also works from a ‘person of the therapist’ perspective making space for you to explore what you as the therapist bring into the room with each client and how each client may trigger these parts of you differently. Working with you in supervision sessions, Nitasha will encourage you to reflect on your transference and countertransference through case formulations to provide you with an introspective approach to responding to your cases.

While working with Nitasha, you will learn how to conceptualize cases in a systems-focused way. She will help you identify what the key issues are that impact each of your cases and the direction in which you should work toward change with your individuals, families, or couples You will be able to identify what your clients’ strengths are, what are their barriers to change, what are their patterns/cycles, and what makes each individual in the system unique to that system. You will find yourself in an open discussion of the multidimensionality of humanism and the systemic levels in which you and your clients exist in.

Nitasha will also provide you with specific therapeutic tools and ideologies that can be used within your treatment of your clients. She will create space for open dialogue about these tools and ideologies for self-exploration as a therapist. You will have a sense of what works for you and your clients. There is no expectation of you applying these skills if you do not feel that they are right for you and your client. You are in the driver’s seat of the work that you are doing with your clients.

Sara Rosenberg

Clinical Supervision is where we do a large part of our growth as new therapists, and it is essential that you feel safe to be vulnerable, ask questions, and to self-reflect. Therefore, the supervisory relationship is the foundation of supervisory learning. In addition, focusing on the supervisory relationship allows a parallel process that mimics the development of therapeutic rapport and allows the modeling of this work to the new therapist.

I use an integrative approach to teaching. We will engage in discussions, but we may also watch short videos on relevant topics, or I may suggest some reading material. I use an eclectic approach with clients, allowing me to provide individualized treatment that considers the whole of the client, the various systems they are in, and how those systems impact the person. My eclectic style allows me to provide education on different clinical theories and applications so that you can develop your clinical style.

It is important to me to foster a new clinician’s sense of self to aid you in exploring who you are as a therapist, what your style and approach will be, and where you see your professional path going. It is important to allow new clinicians the space to try things out, make mistakes, and practice new skills. New clinicians must challenge their thinking, broaden it past what was learned in school or through life experience, and learn to see the world through the client’s eyes.

We cannot isolate the client from the multitude of systems that they are part of, nor is it possible for the therapist to divorce themselves from their own lived experiences. Therefore, to aid the clients in learning how to question the messages they have internalized, the impact of the taught belief systems, and how their lived experiences have shaped their perceptions of the world, a clinician needs to be practicing this form of self-reflection themselves.

While there is no set therapy model that I use or teach, I train all supervisees to work within a trauma-informed lens, engage in culturally humble learning, and conceptualize clients in an intersectional manner. In addition, I encourage question-asking and the development of the self as a therapist, and I support clinicians in identifying career goals to work towards. My goal is for clinicians to feel confident in themselves and learn to trust their clinical intuition.
