Clinical Training, Supervision & Consultation

As an Approved Clinical Supervisor, I am available to provide graduate clinical training as well as clinical supervision for licensure, and clinical consultation for those already licensed seeking continued growth in their clinical competence.

As a life long learner myself and a belief in the importance of quality work in our profession, I have a passion for providing clinical training, supervision, and consultation.  Training, supervision, and consultation will include the administrative, clinical, and supportive functions of our work.  Through the use of an interpersonal approach, I aim to foster the balance of both the art and science of our work.  Believing we are the instrument of our trade, and ensuring stewardship to our profession, my approach to clinical supervision focuses on SELF as professional:

S – scaffolding the learning environment

E – elevating clinical competence and ethical practice

L – leveraging the interpersonal relationship through feedback

F – fostering socio-cultural identity awareness and humility

Since 2009, I have provided graduate training, individual, and group supervision.  I was the Director & Training Coordinator at the Fort Lewis College Counseling Center, I currently provide training in supervision for the NASW Colorado Chapter, have completed the Advanced Clinical Supervision Certificate Program through Smith College’s School of Social Work, and have completed over 100 hours of group leadership training through the Matrix Leadership Institute in Boulder, CO.

If you are interested in training, supervision, or consultation, please email amie@fourcornerscounseling.com to schedule a free consultation.

Bringing my 10+ years of experience training graduate students in mental health related fields, I offer a clinical training group for graduate students in the field of social work, counseling, or other related fields.  This group is designed to supplement student’s learning in their field placement site and is designed to elevate clinical competence through clinical case staffing’s, video review, psycho-educational seminars, and participant group process.

Supervision and consultation are intended for the purpose of professional growth and development, quality assurance, and to enable proficient independent practice.  I view supervision as a means to ensure competence in new clinicians and to support the ongoing elevation of practice in seasoned clinicians.  I therefore offer both supervision for those in mental health fields seeking licensure as well as clinical consultation for those already licensed wanting to maintain their learning trajectory.  I offer supervision and consultation in both individual and group formats.
