 Consultation:  Private Practice Mentorship Program  & Post-Graduate Supervision

Hello, fellow helpers!  

handcrafted consultation: private practice mentorship program:

Most clinicians are drawn to this life as a helper because they sense a calling to do so, which is typically accompanied with a "bleeding heart", but it's also time we normalize embrace becoming more business minded (something that graduate school does not prepare us for), in order to create the life we want for ourselves. In turn, this will improve our effectiveness as a clinician through the intersectionality of lifestyle, income and impact of serving our ideal clients.  Just as we encourage our clients to invest in themselves, it's time to do it for yourself too! Whether you're braving the next venture in your career and interested in establishing your own private practice, but uncertain where to start or you're ready to enhance your business and amplify what you're already doing to contribute to increased success-private practice mentorship can be the catalyst to get you there! 

Handcrafted Consulting offers 1 on 1 consultation and mentorship to help helpers become entrepreneurs. Mentorship packages include case by case consultation, along with systematic mentorship programming including branding.  The HCC Mentorship Program is recommended, as it provides in-depth support to professionals by received handcrafted (personalized) guidance on how to reach optimal success in becoming your own boss, such as:​​

  • Explore professional development and identity as a Clinician

  • Identify practice niche and brand identity

  • Glean experiences from your consultant/mentor

  • Provides accountability to meet professional goals

post-graduate supervision (qs-fl only):

CONGRATULATIONS! You may be ready to submit your application for your registered internship-what an exciting time for you... no more classes, research papers or tests (except the clinical exam perhaps).  You have been so dedicated to complete graduate school and now you are preparing to take the next steps towards licensure.  You have certainly earned the opportunity to implement the clinical skills you acquired during your program! You have come a long way; however, you might feel overwhelmed with how to proceed in selecting a Qualified Supervisor that will guide you through your post graduate supervision hours.  

 

If you have been referred to me or found me via Google search as a potential Qualified Supervisor option, please understand that I maintain this role with reverence and profound understanding of it’s impact in developing your identity as a clinician. My approach within this dynamic is collaborative, by integrating various clinical supervision models that will contribute to you feeling equipped and empowered to utilize all of that graduate school preparation into refining your clinical skill set. I also extend mutual respect and gratitude to fellow helpers, who are looking to gain knowledge and experience by selecting me to enhance their professional development.  

I offer Individual and Group Supervision. One important consideration to remember is that individual supervision is defined as one qualified supervisor supervising no more than two (2) interns and group supervision is defined as one qualified supervisor supervising more than 2 but a maximum of 6 interns in the group. 

*since 2 people are less are considered individual supervision, feel free to grab a colleague and share the cost!

*please refer to your appropriate board for more/up to date information

If you determine that we are not a good match for you to navigate the supervision process, here are a couple of avenues you can explore:

  • The Florida Board of Mental Health will provide an official list of qualified supervisors.  

  • Meet Your Supervisor, an online directory created by Dr. Maria Martinez-Salazar.

  • Ask your graduate program if they have any connections to network a potential referral.
