    We can collaborate to meet your needs!

    Supervision for Licensed Professional Counselor Associates

    2023 Note: At this time I’m only considering LPC-A’s who want to work as independent contractors for Minds In Action Counseling. This is a 1099 collaboration and they must have a transition mindset to private practice, preferably coming from a school, rehab, hospital, non-profit setting to sustain the uncertainty and speed of building a full private-practice caseload.  Send me an email to explore this opportunity.

    My experience serving others spans over 20 years as a Teacher, School Counselor, and the last 15-plus years as a Therapist exclusively in Private Practice. I have treated clients of all ages from 18 months to late 60’s, with a wide variety of presenting concerns.

    Supervision for Registered Play Therapists

    You’re a Professional in your field and currently specializing in this modality to better treat children and their parents. My experience using Child-Centered Play Therapy and Humanistic SandTray Therapy go back to 2008. I have treated thousands of children over the years with presenting concerns, such as anxiety, depression, cognitive delays, behavioral problems, attachment issues, divorce reaction, ADHD, grief, trauma and more. Due to my strong belief in the use of Play Therapy to help children and their families, I volunteered my time in the Rio Grande Valley Chapter of The Texas Play Therapy Association as a Board Member and President.

    Graduate Students

    You are working hard in your classes, usually juggling a job, family and schoolwork. Maybe you need an interview for your class, a short-term site to get some hours done or simply guidance from someone “who’s been there”. With a high adherence to the Ethics Code, we can work together to create a project in which you can get some experience if your needs and my setting match.
