I'm Deseray, a Registered Mental Health Counselor Intern in the state of Florida, and I have a passion for helping people live their best and truest lives. I'm pursuing my license as a Mental Health Counselor, and I'm so glad we can take this journey together!
Supervision Support was created out of a moment of adversity. It took four months of searching, googling, and speaking to professionals in the field to secure a supervisor. I was elated to finally start my journey towards licensure, but discovered early on that my supervisor and I were not a good match. However I stayed, simply because the price point was considerably low and was all I could afford at the time. Towards the tenth month of supervision, it become crystal clear that we had to go our separate ways. I tried everything in my power to keep things amicable in order to ensure she'd sign off on my hours, but to my surprise, she didn't! She stopped responding to emails, calls, texts... And just like that, the 300+ client hours and 20 supervision hours that we agreed to be signed off on was lost. I was devastated! The money and time spent for the past ten months literally disappeared and there wasn't much that I could do about it. I couldn't imagine having to start all over, but I did.
When this happened to me, I vowed to create a space for interns like myself to easily connect with supervisors who were ethically grounded in the profession, and genuinely wanted to guide and develop the next generation of eager, ambitious, and hopefully game changing clinicians like myself.
The good news is I found a pretty awesome supervisor in the end who is incredibly supportive, upfront, and ethically grounded! I want to prevent what happened to me, from happening to you, and to wanted to make the process a bit easier and smoother than it was for me. Supervision Support will aim to save you the months of searching it took me to find a supervisor and to connect with a supervisor who is right for you! So enjoy exploring the site full of top of the line mental health supervisors and gatekeepers who are ready to guide and provide the support necessary to get your license.
Like many of you, I am always looking for opportunities to connect with other mental health professionals. If you have a question about the site, or want to connect with Supervision Support in any way, don't hesitate to reach out.
