Clinical Supervision

Supervision for candidates pursuing the Mental Health Counselor License

Clinical Supervisor

What is a Qualified Supervisor or Approved Clinical Supervisor?

The Florida Board of Clinical Social Work, Marriage and Family Therapy and Mental Health Counseling requires that Registered Interns of each of these three professions

(LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker), LMFT (Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist), and LMHC (Licensed Mental Health Counselor) receive supervision from a Qualified Supervisor before being eligible for independent licensure.

Qualified Supervisors (Approved Clinical Supervisors) are licensed psychotherapists who have received special training in clinical supervision and are authorized to supervise interns.



How is Clinical Supervision Different from My Qualified Supervisor -
Ana M. Lopez Medrano, LMHC, ACS?

My approach to clinical supervision is similar to my approach to therapy. I believe that the goal of supervision is not simply to complete your required hours or to give competent care to your clients.

What I teach interns is how to take their skills and their work to the next level. In addition to what you might normally receive from supervision as the review of your cases, suggestions for treatment approaches or interventions, addressing countertransference, ethics guidance, etc.


In my supervision work, I help you deal with real-life complex questions that affect your clients.

You’ll learn how to balance indirect therapy approaches where you help the client find their own best answers, with more direct therapeutic interventions where you need to take a little more control for a short while to help reassure your client and give them hope, or to prevent them from causing irreversible damage to their relationships.

In my work, I work with interns, provisionals, and students, I also incorporate training in clinical documentation with templates and protocols to help you alleviate the paperwork stress.

I provide bilingual supervision in English-Spanish. 


Frequently asked questions

No. There only needs to be a licensed mental health professional on the premises while you are seeing patients if you are in a private-practice setting.

However, if you are at a hospital, agency, or doing fieldwork, those rules are different.

Your Qualified Supervisor can supervise all of your cases, regardless of where you are seeing your clients.

Absolutely. The rule is that each supervisor needs to be clear on which cases they are responsible for.

Here’s an example of why you may want more than one supervisor: you may be working at an agency where you received free supervision, but find that your supervisor does not have the time to discuss your cases and the issues that are coming up in your work in as much detail as you would like.

In that case, your private supervisor can help bridge some of those gaps. When I was an LMHC Intern myself, I did exactly that and discovered the things I learned from the supervisor I hired privately were, in the end, what enabled me to become an effective therapist.

The first step to getting started with supervision is for you to email me at or send a text message or WhatsApp to +1-954-608-1091 to schedule a FREE phone conversation.
